    I know the economy for the US will open big time if the politics stop.....However future airliner manufacturing has taken a big hit with the literal shutdown of the world airlines.

    Boeing had to shut down the MAX production line. This effects many vendors and the 777 shutdown is no different.

    The FAA has been dragging their feet because they have no one that will make a decision on the MAX. The 777 is in the same situation.

    Probably the big question to ask is flying safe? Could people catch the virus if they fly?

    IMO flying is safe but to convince the flying public is another story!!!
