All while discussing Coronavirus, apparently

Interesting timing given that Boeing just started test flights for the MAX recertification. Of course, Norwegian's financila position is perilous.

Cancel now or go bust before delivery, either one is not good for Boeing.

I'd say their financial position probably played a large role in the cancellation, going forward they really don't need that many aircraft.

Unfortunately for Boeing, and Airbus, neither does any other airline, at least not any time soon.

Yes certainly not a good time to be in the airplane making business. Even if the MAX gets cleared this year, not like airlines are in urgent rush for more.

With Air Canad cutting even more flights and their dire expectation of at least 3 years for recovery, some of these new planes will go straight to the desert possibly.

EASA has banned PIA from operating in the European Onion - they have 24 hours to end operations and get their aircraft out of the EU.

AeroMexico joins the Chapter 11 club.

Air Canada announced today they are cutting 30 domestic routes in Canada, and closing 8 stations in Canada, and more cuts likely coming as they try to reduce their cash burn.

So many old co-workers losing their jobs in the airline industry, some with 25-30 years being forced out, sad times indeed.

Looks like the end of the road for the 747 is near, well in about 2 years according to some reports, Boeing will fulfill the existing orders and shut down the production.
