Seems that Southwest isn’t at all happy with Boeing with the ongoing 737 MAX issues.

As per a CNN report out just now:

Southwest, which has more of the 737 Max planes than any other US airline, said in its earnings report Thursday that the grounding and other "several unexpected events" - including the government shutdown - cost it $200 million in the first quarter.

The low-cost carrier has canceled some flights that planned to use the 737 Max until August 5.

Southwest exclusively uses Boeing 737 aircraft, but CEO Gary Kelly said its fleet lineup could change.

"That doesn't mean we will be an all-737 carrier into perpetuity," he told CNBC Thursday.

Kelly also said he's "not happy" about the grounding the Boeing 737 Max.

“Our negotiations and our relationship with Boeing is something I'll take up with them privately," he said.
