Is Boeing going to compensate them for this. I say this only half jokingly.

Possibly linked to the weaker financials reasoning for canceling this one.

Anybody have insight as to which 20 routes are getting axed?

Los Angeles-Cancun
Los Angeles-Puerto Vallarta
Los Angeles-Omaha
Los Angeles-Pittsburgh
Boston-Kansas City
Dallas Love Field-Oklahoma City
Dallas Love Field-Jacksonville
Dallas Love Field-San Francisco
Orlando, Florida-Oakland
Orlando-San Jose
Fort Lauderdale, Florida-Jacksonville
New York (LGA)-Orlando
Austin-San Francisco

If it has any meaning as an avionics aircraft engineer I will not fly in the B737 max.
