Multibillion dollar corporations don't make decisions on emotion. Delta doesn't "hate Boeing" any more than "Boeing hates Delta". The a321 is an impressive airframe and I'm sure that is why they purchased it.
It's always possible that a max order could come, but IMO that is unlikely. How much longer does the current fleet have? If DL was to order more 320/321 today when could delivery start? 5 years?
On a personal note I've really come around to airbus, I was a HUGE Boeing fanboy but man if they've lost their way (I hope that changes).
Boeing has been losing its way for 25 years as I’ve discussed in other threads. Now I’ve never seen anyone intentionally not uphold safety standards, but the results speak for themselves. I don’t just mean the Max. That was just a horribly tragic blunder. I mean every Boeing program is late and has problems. World Class Training and Research organizations have been dismantled for short term savings. Employee benefits have been cut. All while the CEOs walk away with their pockets lined off the backs of the employees and company.
And what does that have to do with Delta and the 737MAX?
Did you bother to read the post that I responded to?
