American Airlines and Boeing agree on deferrals

In October last year, we already reported on the deferral of eighteen B737-8s to 2023-2024, but new is the airline's deferral of several of its B787s on order.

The airline has decided to alter and defer nineteen orders for the B787-8. Five have been converted to the larger -9 and will now be delivered from 2023. The remaining fourteen B787-8s, in their turn, have now been rescheduled to arrive from Q1-2022.

American Airlines has resumed flights with their MAX8s on 29 December and has 41 in the fleet. In total, they have ordered 100 B737-8s. The Dreamliners will join a fleet which curently consists of 23 B787-8s and 22 B787-9s.
