    Atlanta - The US carrier Delta Airlines has again expressed its desire to add Boeing’s future mid-sized jetliner (NMA) to its fleet.

    The chief executive Ed Bastian said that its company was willing to buy up to 200 jets from the Boeing’s NMA (New Mid-sized Airplane) program.

    With his repeated statements about the Boeing’s future wide-body jet intended for the Middle of the market, Ed Bastian hopes to motivate the American manufacturer to accelerate its efforts to develop the aircraft dubbed Boeing 797.

    Boeing better get moving quickly on this. 200 airplanes is not small order. Plus whatever amount United Airlines would order.

    I don't understand why Boeing is sitting on it's hands on the Boeing 797. They have a big customer knocking on the door.
    Tell the Wall Street guys they will make money if the Marketing and Engineering guys can build and sell this thing. Obviously they can sell it. The 737Max was built to satisfy American Airlines, so Delta wants 200, I'm sure if it comes to fruition there will be more customers. If they don't get moving and still hem and haw over this the whole Board of Directors and the CEO should be kicked out. With all that's going on at Boeing right now, somebody showing confidence in your product means you should go forward. Hint, hint guys.

    Wall St. Now the CEO of Boeing won't allow quite an 'expenditure'. I truly believe all this mess is a move to destroy the USA's top exporter and make the EU's top exporter(Airbus) #1. Globalist NWO BS.
