@dominicgates Buried in Boeing’s 10-Q, unmentioned in the quarterly earnings releases this week and buried by all the positive numbers elsewhere in the business, the jetmaker took another $81 million hit last quarter on the Air Force KC-46 tanker due to higher costs.

@jonostrower Interestingly, one of the less talked about features of 777X is going to be the new HD tail-mounted camera that gives a full wingtip-to-wingtip view to avoid these types of collisions. And yes, my understanding is it’ll be integrated into the IFE, too.

@jonostrower Iran Air’s first 777-300ERs are officially deferred to 2019 at the earliest (were supposed to go this month) and “we are not dependent on those aircraft” to maintain production plan, says @BoeingCEO.

@MaxK_J Despite recent A320neo woes, Airbus reiterates plan to deliver 800 aircraft this year, but warns that it “depends on engine manufacturers meeting commitments”.

@SeattleVolFan With more than 100 airplanes now flying across the globe, the #737MAX has racked up over 32,000 flights and is closing in on 100,000 flight hours. Thank you customers! @BoeingAirplanes #Boeing.
