Re: United Airlines in advanced talks on purchasing 100-150 737MAX

The 350 has been kicked down the road two times; rumor is it will be done a 3rd time then cancelled. By keeping it on the books it gives UA options, but over a decade has passed since the order and UA is on its 3rd administration since then. If there was a need to have the plane it would have been ...

It is far to early for any of the US3 to extend 2019 status to January 2023 a decision like that would not be made until August or September.
