FAR EASTERN AIR TRANSPORT:
FAT have ordered 11 Boeing 737-MAX8s. First 2 aircraft will arrive in 2019. This isn’t the first time FAT have tried to introduce the Boeing 737 into their fleet. They ordered 2 -800s a couple of years ago and even had registrations reserved but problems with financing eventually scuppered the deal.
