It is about time. Quit funding Airbus.
Then Boeing needs to build better airplanes. Boeing has promised a 757 and 767 replacement for decades now and failed to deliver, even after removing them from production. Airbus isn't beating Boeing in many of these airplane markets because they simply make the better airplane, but because they make the ONLY airplane.
Replace the tired old 757s with some Max10s?
The Max-10 is not an adequate replacement for a 757 and Boeing knows this. That's why Delta is very interested in the NMA. Delta may be thinking of an A319/320 replacement.
The ploy now teases Boeing to be a "straw man" bidder, to improve the final price Delta pays for some Airbus products
