"At the same time, we continue to work closely with our customers and regulators on software and training updates for the 737 MAX", Boeing said.
The 3 U.S. airlines that own Boeing Co's 737 MAX are meeting the United States manufacturer this weekend to review a software upgrade for the jet that has suffered 2 fatal crashes in 5 months, officials from the airlines told Reuters.
PT Garuda Indonesia (PTGI), the country's aviation flag carrier, publicly acknowledged this week that the airline sent Boeing a letter last week asking them to cancel the airline's open orders for the company's 737 MAX 8 aircraft.
The software and training fixes were announced by Boeing on March 11 after the FAA called for them in an official airworthiness directive.
Airlines worldwide grounded the jet after the deadly crash of an Ethiopian Airlines flight this month.
The airline said it was making the announcement "to provide more certainty to our customers and team members and better protect our customers on other flights to their final destination".
U.S. aircraft manufacturer Boeing has received its first public order cancellation request from an airline for new 737 MAX 8s as the aircraft model remains grounded throughout much of the world.

Boeing on Saturday confirmed the flight-control software fixes that it plans to make for its grounded 737 Max 8, the plane involved in two fatal accidents within five months.
Southwest's delegation includes experts from its technical pilot and training teams who will review documentation and training associated with Boeing's updated speed trim system, spokeswoman Brandy King said on Friday.
Investigators have honed in on the MCAS automated anti-stalling system created to point the nose of the plane downward if it is in danger of stalling.
Boeing said it was making changes to its flight-control software, known as MCAS, that was created to prevent the aircraft from stalling.
"The planes being in one place will be more efficient for performing the repetitive maintenance necessary for stationary aircraft, as well as any future software enhancements that need to take place", King said.
