Significant regulatory delays on 737 MAX grounding could force Boeing to halt production: letter

Source: Reuters

SEATTLE (Reuters) - Significant additional regulatory requirements or delays in returning the 737 MAX to commercial service could cause Boeing Co (BA.N) to cut or temporarily halt 737 MAX production, the U.S. planemaker said in a letter seen by Reuters on Thursday.

The U.S. planemaker said it does not expect 737 MAX order cancellations due to the grounding of its best-selling single-aisle jet after deadly crashes to have a material impact on revenues or earnings because of the size of 737 order backlog and managementís ability to mitigate potential impacts by shifting planned customer delivery dates, Boeing said in the letter, dated October 18.

1. Boeing and Trump have one thing in common.

How to hide the truth.

2. Which begs the question:

If they have been making "corrections" or "improvements" - how did it ever get approved to begin with?

Did our government agencies fail?

Did somebody's pockets get additional "padding?"

4. Boo fucking hoo.

Make a dangerous defective product and this is what you get. The government in no way should let these fly pending 100% fixes and rigorous testing.

5. Fuck Boeing.

If it was up to me, I would withdraw the airworthiness certificate and order Boeing to scrap every one.

6. Can't do that

And it's the real issue behind the 737 MAX debacle. The MAX's are covered by the original 737 Airworthiness Certificate. Withdraw that, and the entire fleet of 737's would be grounded. Southwest would be put out of business. Other airlines would be decimated.

(at least this is how I understand the certification process worked for the MAX)

8. Who in their right mind would board a 737 MAX?

If I saw that on my boarding pass, I'd be cancelling that flight.
