    Working in sales I feel light headed on the Boeing sales reps behalf at the thought of the comms check.

    Best feeling in the world, although I don't think my comms checks have as many zeros on the end of them.

    Nice work, ring the sales bell.

    Funny how the 787 is supposed to be Boeing's new bread-winner, but it's the homely little 737 that keeps them alive.

    If this comes to the Everett Plan, I am more excited about this than the Seahawks win

    I am sure the governor of Washington is underneath Boeing's boardroom table now and negotiating another round of "tax incentives".
    Removing a single turd from the cesspool doesn't make any difference.

    So he dropped his pen in the middle of signing off on the agreement?

    An old thread ,,,,

    Perhaps worth pointing out that 737 MAX and its previous incarnation are all powered by variations of GE-CFM JV.
    Therefore, GECAS ordering a load of GE-powered 737s, for it to be leased out through its financial arm to LCC is not exactly surprising ...
