why did boeing close the production-lines for the MD 90 and MD 11?
Just because that planes were similar to Boeings 777 or 737?
But why did they buy then McDonell-Douglas? Only to cease production of this types? To have one competitor less?
Or because there were no profits anymore with MD 90 and MD 11? (But I can not believe this, or were McDonell-Douglas bancrupt, when they were bought by Boeing?).
So, what was the reason for Boeing to
a) Buy McDonell-Douglas?
b) Cease the MD-production-lines? (Except MD17 and MD95).
Thanks for your help,
