DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Boeing managed to reach day three of the Dubai Air Show with bids for 50 of its embattled 737 Max jets, a day after getting a firm order for 10 of the jets from leisure airline SunExpress.

Kazakhstan carrier Air Astana announced Tuesday a letter of intent for 30 of the Max jets, which have been grounded globally since March following two devastating crashes in the span of five months that killed 346 people.

Boeing Surges Most Since June on Optimism Over 737 Max Timeline

  Boeing Surges Most Since June on Optimism Over 737 Max Timeline Boeing Co. soared after providing more detail on how the 737 Max will return to the skies -- even as the company backed away from saying the grounded jet would win full regulatory approval next month. The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration is on track to certify redesigned flight-control software by mid-December, Boeing spokesman Gordon Johndroe said Monday in an email. That could enable the planemaker to begin shipping new jets that have been stashed across the Pacific Northwest and Texas during a flying ban imposed in March after two crashes killed 346 people.

DUBAI (Reuters) - Boeing (NYSE:BA) is set to announce orders for several dozen 737 MAX at the Dubai Airshow on Tuesday, people familiar with the matter said. The US planemaker is seeking to secure momentum for the aircraft, which was grounded in March in the wake of two fatal accidents.

Boeing Co. is in talks to sell 737 Max aircraft to Indian carrier SpiceJet Ltd., according to a person familiar with the matter, in what would be a Dubai Airshow coup for the grounded In January 2017, it notched its biggest-ever deal with an order for 100 Max jets , with options for 50 more planes.

The bid, which comes on top of a reported firm order from a mystery buyer for 20 of the Max jets, represents a vote of confidence for a plane whose dangerous defects triggered the largest crisis in the aviation industry this year.

Air Astana's commitment, valued at $3.6 billion, is not a firm order, and all of the deals of the last week remain subject to the aircraft receiving regulatory approval to return to service. The Kazakh airline is also a customer of Boeing's French rival Airbus, which has raked in massive deals this week so far outshadowing those of the American plane-maker.

The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday reported 10 orders for Boeing's 737 MAX 7 and 10 for its 737 MAX 10 from an undisclosed buyer, citing people familiar with the matter.

Safety officials probing records of work on Southwest jets

  Safety officials probing records of work on Southwest jets DALLAS — Southwest Airlines says it will speed up inspections of dozens of used planes it bought from foreign airlines after federal regulators threatened to ground the jets because they might not meet all safety standards. The Federal Aviation Administration said Monday that Southwest agreed to complete the inspections by Jan. 31, and that the agency will take more action if necessary. Southwest downplayed any risk to safety. The airline said repairs on some used Boeing 737 jets had been done but were not properly classified by previous owners.

SunExpress and Boeing came together at the Dubai Airshow to announce the order for 10 more Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft. This will add to their existing order of 32 aircraft. “We have a long-standing, strong and trustful relationship with Boeing and thus we decided to turn our option into an order.

Boeing said Tuesday that it has booked .6 billion in new orders for its 737 MAX jet at the Dubai Airshow as the world's biggest planemaker continues to estimate " Air Astana has become one of the leading airlines in Central Asia with its deep focus on safety, reliability, efficiency and customer service.

Tuesday's news follows an increased order for the Max 737 8 jets from Turkey-based airline SunExpress, which added a firm order for 10 of the planes, worth $1.2 billion at list prices, in addition to a previous order of 32. A steep discount is typically negotiated by airlines.

The Dubai Air Show, known for record-breaking mega deals, typically sees fierce competition for deals from rivals Airbus and Boeing, who each own approximately half of the market for large commercial airliners. But the American plane-maker's presence has been subdued thus far, weighed down by the crashes, ensuing safety concerns and the grounding of its fleet of roughly 400 jets around the world.

The aerospace giant has struggled this year, with new orders all but drying up as a result. British Airways parent, International Consolidated Airline Group, said during the Paris Air Show in June that it intends to buy 200 of the 737 Max planes, but that order has not been firmed up.
