So, yes, it's being sold off, piecemeal. One might still get part of the action!

The funny thing is, that a MAX makes money at the moment for the airline, as Boeing has to pay compensations for the grounding. Question is, is Boeing actually paying anything right now to Airlines?

PrivatAir used to do a cool route of FRA-PNQ (Pune, India) directly with an older 737 in wet lease for LH. Return flight always had a fuel stop in OTP or in Tbilisi. Half of the plane was business class, other half in Y. Was convenient to be able to skip the road trip from BOM to PNQ city.Jump to post

I will make a prediction that Boeing will cancel the 777X. Very unlikely. It's already developed and in testing. Most likely they will let customer defer deliveries or switch to 787 and cut production down to the bare minimum (Worse case scenario 6 frames a year) until orders start to pick back up....Jump to post
As I wrote in another thread, N95 means 95% effective at blocking foreign particles, 5% not effective.
