Brazilian airline reported that purchase would be beneficial for GOL Linhas Aéreas, which is facing judicial recovery in the USA

The airline Latam ended the negotiations and gave up on purchasing the 737 planes, from Boeing, from GOL Linhas Aéreas, which is facing a judicial recovery process in the USA. The information is from the newspaper Folha de S. Paulo.
