Boeing’s woes continue as it takes zero orders

Boeing booked no new orders for planes last month, the first time it has come up empty-handed in January since 1962, as the US plane maker’s once best-selling jet – the 737 MAX – remained grounded following two fatal crashes.

The airplane maker, struggling with a crisis that dates back to the second of the two crashes last March, also said it delivered just 13 planes to customers last month.

A year ago, it sealed 45 orders after cancellations in January and delivered 46 planes.

Most airline customers are avoiding placing fresh orders for the 737 MAX until the aircraft is cleared by regulators to fly again, leaving Boeing trailing European rival Airbus SE and swallowing huge monthly financial losses.
