Tweet Picks:

@David_Slotnick “It’ll be a while before we announce a big new airframe” Boeing CEO Dave Calhoun says on a media call, referring to the NMA and citing need to see what market looks like on the other end of this, but says that the specific NMA decision came a few months ago.

@jonostrower Boeing clarifies after CFO & CEO comments that 777X “will be certified as a part of the 777 family not as an all-new type.”

@jonostrower Boeing CEO Calhoun says the HEPA filters on its airliners do “in fact filter out the virus.”

@jmhdinger In-development 777X will have a separate type certificate, not falling under the original 777’s certificate, says CEO Dave Calhoun, citing “post-Max” environment. Certification still expected for 2021. @boeing  #777X.

@MaxK_J .@Boeing ‘s Calhoun bullish on new a/c to @CNBC : “Retirements are going to be significant, and the investments, while not what they used to be…will continue to be made to get more fuel efficient, cleaner airplanes and create competitive advantages for each of our airlines”.
