Ethiopian Airlines announced, on Tuesday, a deal with Boeing that will see the company buy 20 737 MAX aircraft, as well as 11 additional 787 Dreamliners during the Dubai Air Show. The airline will announce an order for wide-body jets, either the Boeing 777X or Airbus A350, in the coming months, he said, declining to say how many wide-body jets it would order. "The accident on the max (737-max) that happened before four years was a very, very sad accident. It was the second involving a Boeing MAX in less than five months, and led to a worldwide grounding of all MAX jets for nearly two years. Boeing described the sale as the largest-ever purchase of Boeing aeroplanes in African history, without disclosing a price point for the deal.
