Delta Air Lines almost bought the troubled Boeing 737 Max aircraft, which was grounded worldwide earlier this year after its software was implicated in two crashes in five months that killed nearly 350 people.




"It was a close call," CEO Ed Bastian said on the earnings call this week. "We spent quite a few months analyzing and going back and forth."




Rivals American, United, and Southwest Airlines have 72 Max aircraft between them, meaning they've been forced to cancel thousands of flights and lose out on hundreds of millions of dollars.

Delta Air Lines almost bought the troubled Boeing 737 Max aircraft, which was grounded worldwide earlier this year after its software was implicated in two crashes in five months that killed nearly 350 people.
The Max is a "good product" and "very competitive," Delta CEO Ed Bastian said on the airline's earnings call this week. The company conducted a "comprehensive review" that looked at the cost, the engine, customers' views of the aircraft, and other factors before ultimately opting for the Airbus A321neo.
"It was a close call," Bastian said. "We spent quite a few months analyzing and going back and forth."
