Delta chief executive tells airlines trying to reach an agreement with Boeing

A Boeing spokeswoman declined to comment.

Delta is the only major U.S. carrier without a 737 MAX on order.

In September, Airline Weekly quoted Bastian as saying there was a place for the MAX at Delta if the carrier could figure out how to bring them in.

The MAX 10 competes with Airbus’ strongest-selling model, the A321neo. Both planes are aimed at the fast-growing segment of the market just above 200 seats.

  • “We continue to see if there’s opportunities with the MAX but no decisions, no hold ups,” Bastian told Reuters.
