Garuda Indonesia wants to cancel its remaining order for 49 Boeing 737 MAX 8s

Garuda Indonesia's first Boeing 737-8 MAX 8

Garuda Indonesia Airways has publicly stated it plans to cancel its remaining order of 49 Boeing 737 MAX 8s after losing confidence in the new type after two tragic crashes.

The airline ordered 50 of the new type in 2014. The flag carrier has already taken delivery of one (PK-GDA) but it is grounded.

Boeing is planning to visit the airline on March 28 to discuss the cancellation request.
