CNN (KWQC) - New orders are drying up for Boeing, in the aftermath of the grounding of its 737 Max airplanes.

The company says it did not receive a single order for new jets the entire month of April.

The 737 Max planes have been grounded worldwide since March 13, 2019, following two crashes overseas in a five-month period.
But airlines did not order any of Boeing's other jets, even though they're not facing safety concerns.

Some analysts say airlines are holding out to see if Boeing will lower its price tags, as it works to get through the crisis.

New orders have been slow this year even before the 737 Max planes were grounded.
