Lufthansa Group is studying an order for a "triple-digit" number of narrowbody jets and includes both A320neo and B737 MAX in its reviews, Reuters has reported.

"We have not lost our trust in Boeing. They’ve built wonderful aircraft over the decades, and I am sure they will fix the current issue," Group CEO Carsten Spohr said.

The group plans to place the order in 2020.

The aircraft will replace A319-100s and Bombardier Aerospace CRJ regional jets. Lufthansa (LH, Frankfurt Int'l) currently operates thirty-one A319s, which are on average 17.3 years old. The A319s are also widely used across the entire group by Brussels Airlines (twenty-two), Austrian Airlines (seven), Eurowings (sixteen), Eurowings Europe (nine), germanwings (twenty-six), Lufthansa CityLine (two), and Swiss (four).

Lufthansa CityLine is the only CRJ operator in the group with thirty-five CRJ900ERs.

The group does not operate any Boeing narrowbodies at present.
