Re: Updated: Boeing Terminates Agreement to Establish Joint Ventures with Embraer

I never understood that JV proposal, except as a "me too" knee-jerk reaction after the Airbus/BBD deal. It the Boeing/Embraer deal was so solid in the first place, it would have happened already or been extended; maybe another blessing in disguise for Boeing. Boeing knew they blew it when...

They could have 3 crashes in a day with the C919 and they will not ground their flagship project. Much easier for China to ground a foreign aircraft.
