Boeing delivers 95 jets in first two months of 2019

March 12 (Reuters) - Boeing Co delivered 95 aircraft in the first two months of 2019, up from 93 planes a year earlier, with its best-selling 737 MAX jets comprising nearly half of those deliveries.

A number of countries including Britain and Singapore have grounded Boeing’s 737 MAX 8 aircraft following a deadly crash in Ethiopia on Sunday that killed 157 people.

The world’s biggest planemaker won 48 net orders between January and February, beating European rival Airbus SE, which did not report any wins and had 99 cancellations dominated by its widebody A350-900 aircraft and the superjumbo A380.
