Re: Airbus and Boeing 2020 Orders

To be fair to Boeing, the cancellations for the MAX are still not any great drama as % of the total order book.

Its longevity in the marketplace will be shortened by the knowledge that something else has to come after it. So the opportunity cost of switching will likely not be as high as it mi...

It is better to take the risk, develop a new airliner which will give them lots of years of u...
