Re: 737MAX Cancellations, China Southern and others

I know its very unlikely but if a major player like WN cancelled their orders. It would be the final nail in the coffin for the Max program. I love Boeing aircraft and I've flown on them for years, but this has permanently stained Boeing's record in my book.

Yup, its contract negotiation time. Let's put out some bad press to pressure the company to give in to our demands. Typical union tactic. Nothing else to see here.
