The decision to cancel an aircraft order is a difficult one, due to Boeing and Airbus' dominance over the market for large, commercial aircraft, and the series of investments and decisions airlines ma...

The Boeing 737 Max is likely to be the last version of the best-selling airliner of all time (BA)

The Boeing 737 is best selling airliner of all time.  There have been four distinct generations of the plane in the five decades years since the original 737-100 entered service in 1967.

One US airline will likely bear the brunt of the Boeing 737 Max ban (BA, LUV)

Southwest Airlines will face greater logistical challenges following the grounding of Boeing 737 Max aircraft than United Airlines and American Airlines, said Henry Harteveldt, the founder of the travel research company Atmosphere Research Group. American and United use a "hub-and-spoke" model to organize their flight schedules, which means planes are more likely to return to a central hub after a given flight than in Southwest's "point-to-point" model, under which a plane is more likely to fl...
