Riyadh/Dubai: Saudi Arabian budget airline flyadeal will not proceed with a provisional US$5.9 billion (Dh21.6 billion) order for Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, instead opting for a fleet of Airbus A320 jets.Flyadeal has been reconsidering a commitment to order the Boeing jets after two MAX aircraft crashed in Ethiopia in March and Indonesia last October.
The two disasters killed a total of 346 people, triggered the global grounding of the aircraft and wiped billions off Boeing's market value.
Meanwhile, Emirati carrier flydubai said in April it could order A320neos as replacements for the MAX jets.
"This order will result in flyadeal operating an all-Airbus A320 fleet in the future," it said...
