Grounded Boeing 737 MAX aircraft are seen parked in an aerial photo at Boeing Field in Seattle, Washington, U.S. July 1, 2019.

Boeing delivered 194 commercial planes in the second quarter of a year ago, compared with deliveries of just 90 planes in the 2019 second quarter.

Airbus is on track to overtake Boeing in commercial plane deliveries for 2019 after outpacing its U.S. rival at mid-year following the 737 MAX grounding, according to data released Tuesday. Over the weekend, flyadeal, a budget airline based in Saudi Arabia, canceled a provisional order for 30 Boeing 737 Max planes, and said it would take delivery of A320 jets from Airbus instead.

With the uncertainty about its return to operation after the two accidents with the companies Lion Air and Ehiopian, the 737 MAX loses a big request after its grounding in March.

The Boeing 737 Max planes have been grounded since mid-March after two fatal crashes that claimed a total of 346 lives.

The planemaker delivered 113 of the model plane through June compared to 269 of all 737s in the first half of 2018.

Futures Down Ahead of Fed News
The Nasdaq composite, which is heavily weighted with technology companies, gained 43.35 points, or 0.5%, to 8,141.73. USA futures pointed to a lower opening for Wall Street, with E-Minis for the S&P500 at -0.2 percent.

Published reports suggest the airline and Boeing are in talks, however, and Boeing still lists the last 49 Garuda orders on its website.

American Airlines, which has already pulled the MAX off its flying schedule through September 3, had in April cut its annual profit forecast, blaming an estimated $350 million hit from the groundings. Boeing didn't count those as orders because the deal is not yet final.

Flyadeal, part of Saudi Arabian Airlines Corp., has an all-Airbus fleet. For the year to date, Boeing has delivered 22 767s, almost as many as the 27 it delivered in all of last year. Oman Air and Emirati carrier flydubai both have warned earlier this year they would switch to Airbus if a fix for the 737 Max wasn't forthcoming soon.

June was the third straight month of no new orders for the model.

The company's shares rose 3% in early trading and also lifted the stocks of other airlines, providing some relief to a sector that has been battered by thousands of flight cancellations and reschedules in the wake of the grounding.
