Boeing might sell a right foot for this business because they now the clout it will bring. Even if it gets split up between the two. That’s enough of a win.
But prospectively where can IAG place 200 MAX jets.
I’ve heard Heathrow has a problem with connections and uncontainrised baggage. Personally I think that is ridiculous for an airport like that. How can you not handle containerised baggage? If they can’t. Can it be introduced? And if can be introduced can it be the MAX be the mainstay of BA?
Bear in mind. BA allowed 70 a320neo options expire not to long ago.
Bear also in mind that regardless of whether IAG orders 737s or not the A320 family was, is and will be the mainstay of IAG considering the sheer number of units in operation and to be delivered.
