But then again, they'd be negligent if they DIDN'T "consider" it.... doesn't mean that they'll buy it.

On a personal note:
DL is my primary airline, and I refuse to set foot on a MAX for at least 5yrs after their RTF.... the thought of never having to worry about it, because the airline didn't order them, was kinda nice.
It is a great post but I am not sure whether he was stating that he considered FLYING in one rather than buying them aircraft, although one might be forgiven in thinking that he basically only flies with DL (with some very rare excepetions where a private jet might be used...) so implying that he was actually open to it.
Things may change but, as of now, I do not think DL will buy any Boeing Aircraft. Airbus has enough portfolio to push them whatever they want on any segment.
Boeing's bet on DL would be a change of scenario when DL needs to replace those 737s its got maybe. But I find UA ordering NB Airbus more likely than this at present - again, things might change in future.
Additionally, as someone that flew GIG-CDG on Air France less about a year after the AF447 accident (and on a A332) and who's local national carrier has already ordered 200 of MAX (plus the local neighboors LCC's huge order of the same...), I am not phased in flying it. Once it is clear the aircraft is safe it will return to the skies and, if selected to a flight I might take, I will be on it.
It is really bad that two ended up on the ground and killing a lot of people and quite rightly the type was grounded afterwards but they were not the only aircrafts of the type flying at that time and severa others did start and completed their journey so once the MCAS issue is addressed, why not??
