Boeing is in discussions to sell B737 MAX jets to Alaska Air Group once the plane returns to service following a lengthy grounding. The talks are part of a series of negotiations between Boeing and several airlines over jet orders or compensation after the B737 MAX was banned worldwide.

Ryanair has said it expects the B737 MAX plane to be allowed to fly again in the US in the next month or so. The carrier hopes to start taking delivery of the planes early in 2021.

I'll wait some time to be on board again (flew twice on it, even a few days after the first crash)...

Little confidence in this sudden turnaround, no doubt caused by economic pressures ... we will have to find out from now on the type of aircraft that operates the service or choose the company accordingly!

The aicraft has been grounded for more then a year, with enormous amounts of work been done behind the scenes. Why you call this a "sudden turnaround" is beyond me and in bad faith.

FAA Administrator Steve Dickson tells IASS 2020 that he expects the 737 MAX recertification process "to be completed in the not-too-distant future. We are making excellent progress. We continue to narrow the issues & work milestone by milestone." There is no 'set schedule.'

China’s aviation regulator said that authorities have not set a timetable on when the Boeing 737 MAX jet would return to service in the country. Re-certification of the plane could be used as a bargaining chip in the trade war with the US, and Boeing stands to lose a lot since Chinese companies have placed big orders.

American Airlines to defer deliveries of 18 B737 MAX jets scheduled to be delivered in 2021-22 until 2023-24, and the carrier would need a “substantial improvement in the demand environment” to justify taking the jets before then.

Southwest Airlines will take delivery of no more than 48 B737 MAX jets through the end of 2021 and is in discussions with Boeing to restructure its order book.

Boeing said it has 450 737Max jets in storage. It expects to delivery about half by the end of next year and the majority of the rest in 2022. That's down from its Q2 estimates of delivering the majority within one year of the resumption deliveries.
