@FG_STrim Second ITC commissioner now asks why Boeing never replaced the 717. Boeing’s McAllister says the company’s investment in the 737 Max 7 shows the company’s commitment to the segment. It has differences from baseline 737 Max 8 that adds costs in production.

@FG_STrim The tariff on CSeries imports to Delta Air Lines is set at 292.21%, but could be terminated if the US International Trade Commission (ITC) decides that Boeing wasn’t harmed. The ITC ruling is due around 1 February.

@IABCNPhila January 30th at The Pyramid Club of Philadelphia: Join us for our first Executive Perspectives event of 2018, featuring @AerLingus executives and the Director of Commerce for the City of Philadelphia.

@jonostrower The Boeing argument that the Max 7 was fighting for a spot between 100 to 125 seats was always a strange one. The key to the design is they added more than 6 feet to the fuselage for added seating.

@winglets747 This isn’t ultra-long-haul territory. And missed is this hugely critical point: Hong Kong is furthest south in Asia a hub can support flights to both coasts of the US without notable payload restrictions. Geography is destiny.
