Re: Is DL taking delivery of A350’s from NRT to avoid tariffs?

Kinda like taking delivery of your new BMW in Munich instead of from your friendly neighborhood US-based dealership? Saves $$. I could be guilty of over simplifying things. It is exactly like this...having bough my German car (albeit not a BMW) this way. I picked up my car at the factory, it came w...

Zero effect. The general population is not going to be concerned at all. They know that the aircraft cannot fly unless certified. They may remember that there was some issue that led to a 737 grounding; but, it must have been fixed if the aircraft are flying. No one was concerned about the 787 retu...
