Seattle, Washington - Customers canceled another 60 of the Boeing’s troubled 737 MAX orders in June. 737 MAX cancellations reached 323 units in the first half of the year.

Boeing’s 737 MAX has been grounded since March 2019 after two fatal crashes killed 346 people combined. The Federal Aviation Administration late last month started flight tests that would pave the way toward the planes’ recertification, but their review will take several more weeks.

The coronavirus pandemic has handed Boeing an additional and broader challenge as demand for new planes dries up. Airlines are posting deep losses and are racing to shrink rather than add new aircraft and routes.

Boeing’s backlog shrank to 4,552 to planes, a tally that included orders the company periodically removes due to customers’ financial trouble or other factors. For many customers, it was easier to scrap the orders after the 737 MAX has been grounded for more than 12 months.
