Garuda Indonesia ordered 50 Boeing 737-8 MAX 8 aircraft in 2014. The airline has only received one copy (above). Last month it cancelled its remaining 49 aircraft on order.

Since then Garuda Indonesia has been in negotiations with Boeing.

Now, according to the Nikkei Asian Review, Garuda Indonesia will now switch its previously cancelled order to other Boeing aircraft including the 737-10 MAX 10 and 787 Dreamliner.

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.
