Vietjet orders 100 B737MAXs

In a major blow to Airbus, Vietnam's largest privately owned airline i.e. Viejet has placed an order for 100 Boeing 737-800MAX planes in the high density configuration that would seat 200 passengers. 

VJ's current fleet comprises of 5 A321s + 30 A320s + it already had a pending order with Airbus for 30 A321NEOs and 50 A320NEOs. With the placement of this new order, the carrier will not maintain its one family fleet type but rather will fly both side by side plus lease out units to franchises set up in other Asian countries.
