You are hysterically conflating multiple issues.
It takes little time to “fix” the parked aircraft as the software load can be done very quickly. There is no scenario being credibly discussed where hardware modifications are immediately required.
It will take more than a year to deliver some airplanes. This will be more of a reflection of when customers want deliveries: e.g. European IT airlines have narrow windows when deliveries work.
I would expect AS and the other US airlines would receive many of their stored airplanes earlier.
I would say you are hysterical optimistic. I bet you that this grounding will still have an effect on delivery delays of 737MAX three years from now. Just the production reduction will put Boeing about 150 to 200 frames behind plan. And Boeing can hardly give preferential treatment to USA customers, without losing credibility in other markets.
Cancellations (eg Jet Airways) gives Boeing some breathing room/flexibility. I expect many of the early deliveries will be US airlines not because of “preferential treatment” but rather because the FAA will like RTS first, and the US customers are generally on pretty solid financial ground (there are some other customers, like DY, who probably won’t be in a rush to pay for undelivered stock and will be willing to wait and pace out deliveries). Everything will be negotiated with airlines, you can easily prioritize some customers over others with financial carrots.
We were talking about getting 60 extra 737-9 in a hurry to get rid of a fleet of A320 family frames right away as some posters here fantasies.
But to your optimistic picture. If we imagine deliveries beginning in January, we have frames delayed up to 10 month. There will be 400 frames stored undelivered. There will be up to 150 frames not produced compared to planned production at that time. There will be the necessity to ramp from 42 frames a month to 57 frames a month, meanwhile having more frames not produced compared to promised deliveries.
The 127 not to be delivered Jet Airways are like drop on a hot stone slightly more than 2 month at full production at 57 frames a month.
The 400 stored frames have to be checked, software adjusted and made ready for delivery, side by side with the new produced frames. Quite a feat. We have seen how heavy it weight on Airbus to deliver the about 120 A320neo family frames delayed by engine shortages, while delivering new frames.
The FAA has thrown an additional twist, checking up by the FAA on every to be delivered frame.
With every additional month the problem grows.
If we look at where one finds the frames to deliver prioritized to USA airlines. What airline do you think will accept late deliveries, having already frames delayed? Will Boeing run the risk of having frames canceled through further delays?
