Saudi LCC flyadeal switches MAX order to A320neo

"We understand that Flyadeal will not finalize its commitment to the 737 MAX at this time given the airline's schedule requirements", a Boeing spokesman was quoted by the AFP as saying.

The deal, which included an additional option to purchase 20 more 737 Max aircraft, was worth $5.9 billion at list prices, but the airline would have been offered a discount on that price tag.

Flyadeal didn't mention either of the two fatal crashes of the Boeing planes in its statement, but said that the move was "in response to continuing growth in passenger demand across domestic, regional and global routes". Lion Air has threatened to cancel an order for 200 (14 have been delivered) of the Boeing jets but it still appears on Boeing's order book.

Flyadeal said the Airbus agreement emerged from last month's Paris Air Show.

Regarding the specifications of the two aircraft, it is imperative to mention that A320 neo can accommodate a maximum of 194 passengers, while maximum 210 passengers can seat in 737 Max 8. The decision marks a commercial setback for Boeing.
