Default Boeing and NAI

I have heard that Boeing has endorsed the NAI approval with the DOT. This may weaken ALPA's support from the Washington State delegation. If you live in Washington State and haven't yet emailed your elected reps in DC, please do so ASAP!

Thank you

It wouldn't be surprising; they might stand to sell more Sparkies.

Of course, that short-term gain would be negated if the legacies started shrinking and cancelling orders....

But they'd make it up in sales to NEW low-cost companies such as "Somali Air International," with an operating certificate in Ireland, and crews from Liberia.....

Between the EX IM bank and this, Boeing is a joke. They can't play the middle forever.

And don't forget that those below market rate loans provided to foreign carriers (that US airlines can't access) are funded by our taxpayer dollars.

We're getting boned from every direction.

Sure. Continue to believe in this!
Any why would Boeing care about you [Airline Pilots]?
I wouldn't if I were Boeing!

Boeing is in the business of building/selling airliners. They're not in the airline business and could care less about how crews are employed/paid.
