(NEWSnet/AP) — Boeing received orders for only four new planes in May and, for the second straight month, none for its best-selling 737 Max.

Aerolineas Argentinas canceled an order for a single Max jet, bringing Boeing’s net sales for the month to three.

The dismal results followed poor figures in April, when Boeing reported seven sales, none for Max.

Federal Aviation Administration is capping Boeing’s production of 737s after a door plug blowout on an Alaska Airlines Max, allegations by whistleblowers that Boeing has taken shortcuts to produce planes more quickly and reports of falsified inspection records.

Despite the slow pace of recent sales, Boeing still has a backlog of more than 5,600 orders.
