Re: Boeing is being forced to give larger discounts

Today no airlines want widebodies and for a few months of the restart. The MAX will eventually be certified and Boeing will find a price they sell at. This is bad, but not the end for either company. Boeing found a small discount would move the 787s. More will be required (not amount of discount, b...
