    Strange? Why would any airline say that they would use inferior parts?

    Inferior to what?

    Are they idiots?

    Genuine Boeing parts. Maybe they found out they've been using spare parts from China?

    Usual fear-mongering during management-labor dust-ups...
    I don't give it much attention when contracts are in negotiation...

    Ironically the Chinese are in the used airliner parts business! They have set up plants that buys old airliners and sells the parts world wide. I wonder were these parts will show up?

    But don't worry we can trust the Chinese to sell really good used parts!

    As the song goes "Don't Worry Be Happy". One article mentions Mary Shiavio's tenure as DOT Inspector General. It was under her watch that the FAA did actually catch counterfeit parts heading for maintenance on Air Force One. While there is a lot of worrying information here I think the American Airlines article has some Labor/Management problems as an undercurrent. Did President Trump place high tariffs on the Chinese parts. That may be the answer. Kills the whole idea of saving money.

    What's sad, the stuff is going on regardless and the regulator is just staring at their computers in their cubes.
