As lenders and promoter Naresh Goyal continue to disagree on the terms of recapitalisation of Jet Airways, the airline is sliding slowly deeper into distress every day. The airline, which started the winter schedule with 103 planes, is now down to 83. 

Dublin-based aircraft lessor AerCap has issued a termination notice for at least two Boeing 737 aircraft, said people in the knowledge of the development. This is the first instance when a lessor has terminated the lease agreement with the financially distressed carrier. 

GECAS, GE Capital’s leasing firm, too, has stopped delivery of Boeing 737 Max.
