Seems unlikely that Boeing will go bust, the recent leaks are a bit more optimistic But the billions the 737MAX fiasco is going to cost must be eating up the profits for the 737 program. If it is not returned to flight pretty soon they must eventually run out of funds or be vulnerable to take overs,...

As the engines on the 737MAX are mounted so far forward more of the fuselage is at risk from flying debris including the rudder cables.
