3. What prevents the Russians from just ignoring the demand and continue maintaining

and flying the aircraft? Is it just a war of words? I don't know.

4. Boeing and Airbus won't be supplying any spare parts.

Their jetliners have thousands of components that periodically break down and need replacement. Some of them arenít vital, but with each successive failure there is a loss of redundancy, eventually resulting in an aircraft that isnít safe to fly.

With no spare parts available, they can borrow parts from other airplanes, but thereís a built in limit to that. Additionally, these aircraft models depend on airspace and navigation databases loaded into their computers that are updated every 30 days or so. Without legal databases, they would be banned from flying in any other countryís airspace.
