Will Akasa Air’s contra bet on Boeing 737 Max instead of Airbus pay off?

During the Dubai Air Show in November last year, the latest entrant in the Indian commercial aviation space, Akasa Air, made one of its bravest decisions: placing orders for Boeing 737 MAX 8.

Whether this was borne out of the fact that the Airbus A320 neos were not available or because Boeing’s offer came with freebies and discounts, it still goes to the credit of the airline management to go with the US plane maker for its fleet. Now that its done, the airline will have to live with it, as having a mixed fleet of Airbus and Boeing for its operations can be quite daunting. It is something that they must have taken into consideration before placing the order for 72 aircrafts powered by CFM’s LEAP-1B engines from Boeing for a list price of nearly $9 billion.
