China Southern Airlines has stated it has not yet confirmed a timetable for the delivery of its remaining Boeing 737 MAX jets on order from Boeing.

The airline has 24 Boeing 737-8 MAX 8s grounded in China although Chinese authorities has authorized the type to fly again.

Complicating the issue has been the dramatic downturn in traffic in China due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.

Previously the airline predicted 39 MAX jets would be delivered in 2022, 37 in 2023 and 27 in 2024. This is now in doubt.
