Delta Air Lines is reportedly in advanced talks with Boeing on a large order of 100 737 MAX 10 Jets...a model that has yet to be certified by regulators.
The deal, if confirmed, would be the first order from Delta for Boeing’s best-selling single-aisle airplane family, and the first major Boeing order for the carrier in a decade.
It comes as Delta — the only major U.S. carrier without a 737 MAX on order — reshapes its fleet in anticipation of a swift recovery from the pandemic.
Boeing and Delta, which have had a frayed relationship in past years, are working on details of an order that could consist of 100 aircraft, many or all of which could involve the largest variant, the 737 MAX 10, two of the people said.
If a deal is reached, an announcement could come as soon as next month, one of the people added.
Boeing and Delta declined to comment.
