Indonesian Airline Cancels $5 billion Boeing 737 Max 8 Order

Garuda, Indonesia's flagship airline, canceled a $5 billion order of 49 Boeing 737 Max 8 jets in light of two deadly crashes within five months of each other.

"Garuda passengers in Indonesia have lost trust and no longer have the confidence" in the plane, a spokesman for the airline told Agence France-Presse.

This is the first time an airline has formally canceled an order of the jet model.
