CAL: We have no MAX 8s at present

Caribbean Airlines is seeking to clarify some reports that it is currently operating the Boeing Max 8 aircraft that was recently involved in two fatal accidents.

The airline issued an updated news statement on Monday, making it clear that it does not currently have any of those aircraft in its present fleet.

"Caribbean Airlines currently does not have the Boeing MAX 8 aircraft as part of its fleet. The airline uses the Boeing 737-800 Next Generation aircraft (this is not the MAX-8)," the airline said in its statement.

Caribbean Airlines, however, has ordered some of the MAX 8 aircraft to add to its fleet.
