Boeing (BA) has reportedly received an order from Indian budget carrier SpiceJet for up to 42 Boeing 737 MAX jets in a deal worth $4.4B at list prices.

SpiceJet has also taken options to purchase another 42 planes, depending on its growth.

If the report is accurate, the deal could represent a bit of a coup for Boeing, as SpiceJet had reportedly been looking to acquire the aircraft from Airbus (EADSF).
