“Southwest acknowledged the merits of the A220, but there was no competition” for a commercially-based bid, LNA is told.

Up next in the “no sh*t” department. Boeing could have tripled the price on the 737 and said unkind things about Gary Kelly’s mother, and it wouldn’t have mattered.

I would agree with the "excellent analysis" observation if the fact that WN had a massive claim for damages up its sleeve against Boeing because of the MAX8 delays would be considered in this thread. Alas, everybody seems to be obsessed with aspects such as single fleet, manufacturing capacity at Airbus etc. If someone believes that the massive claims by WN against Boeing had no impact on the MAX7 deal, he also believes in Father Christmas.
