It looks like Ryanair is considering the -10 MAX.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/willhorton ... nturn/amp/

“If the MAX is back flying in September, October this year, I will be very disappointed if we’re not in very active negotiations with Boeing either this side of Christmas or early in the spring on an order for larger aircraft, the MAX 10s,” O’Leary told the Davy Transport Conference on Thursday.
IM messages to mods on warnings and bans will be ignored and nasty ones will result in a ban.

Boeing asks suppliers to cut production rate outlook for 2020 from 125 planes to 72 planes.

Unclear if Boeing itself would maintain a higher number given the number of stored fuselages right now.

Might make sense to link to the primary news source, rather than a regurgitation:

Flying at the cruising altitude is (mostly) boring. I wish all flights were nothing but endless take offs and landings every 10 minutes or so.

Reuters: Boeing 737 MAX certification flight tests to begin on Monday: sources says:

Pilots and test crew members from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and Boeing Co (BA.N) aim to kick off a certification test campaign for the 737 MAX on Monday, expected to last at least three days, people familiar with the matter told Reuters.

So Reuters has at least two sources saying the long (long, long, ...) awaited MAX test flights will begin Monday.

ST: Inspector General report details how Boeing played down MCAS in original 737 MAX certification – and FAA missed it says:

A report set to be released Wednesday by the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Transportation concludes that Boeing deliberately played down the details of the flight control system that later helped bring down two 737 MAX jets so that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), responsible for certifying the new system, entirely missed its significance and danger.

This is the long awaited "Inspector General's Report" mentioned often in our on-going MAX grounding threads.

Also they released a very revealing video:
