Yes, perhaps a bit of an optimistic prediction, but the 737 will fly in commercial service again.

The scandal of the new Garuda Airbus which came from Toulouse and which upon customs control was found to carry Harley Davidson parts, gets more and more awkward. Now it seems the directors of Garuda were involved in smuggling the bicycle parts.

I don‘t think Harley Davidson has made bicycle parts for a long time. Maybe 90 or 100 years.

^ Not only HD. There were many parts from Brompton bicycles on the pallets and in the roll containers as well.

After American Airlines ordering 50 planes with Airbus and having to postpone the new NMA, Boeing gets another hit; also United Airlines ordered 50 Airbus planes. For an estimated $7 billion. (They already had an order for the long range Airbus A350-900 but delivery got postponed.)

The Airbus A321 XLR should start to replace the Boeing 757-200, for medium distance flights. (E.g. east coast to Europe.)

Erick Thohir, the Minister of State Companies, declared in a press conference he wants to fire Garuda's boss Ari Askhara, for smuggling a Harley Davidson illegally via Garuda's Airbus A330-900 aircraft.

Erick said he knew that the Harley belonged to Ari Askhara from the results of the Garuda Audit Committee report: "The Audit Committee stated that the Harley motorbike was owned by AA's relatives. In detail, AA gave instructions to find the Harley Davidson Softail Head in 2018, so this is a classic motorbike. This purchase was in April 2019".

Of course Garuda has always been a mess. The KPK has been investigating a case of bribery by Rolls Royce. They detected a 100 billion rupiah 'inexplicable' money flow. Several (former) directors of Garuda, including the former boss Emirsyah Satar, are accused.
