Boeing's top-selling aircraft has been taken out of service worldwide since an Ethiopian Airlines 737 MAX crashed in March, five months after a Lion Air 737 MAX plunged into the sea off Indonesia. Airbus said it had won 363 orders and commitments including 226 for the A321XLR, and later reported another 10 XLR orders. Boeing said it was in talks with other airlines for sales of its 737 MAX after the IAG deal. Mounir still expected the world's largest twin-engined plane to fly this year and to be delivered in 2020.
