Re: Steven Udvar-Hazy: 737 needs replacement

One of the ways airlines are being compensated by Boeing for the groundings and more recent delivery delays are credits against future orders. So top up orders from airlines that have been affected by the MAX groundings are more indicative of airlines taking up part of their compensation packages. ...
