I have to admit I've been thinking similarly. Forget the MAX, write it down as a bad investment, and skip straight to its replacement -- baseline 160-170 pax single aisle, with the stretch going 200-210, making sure there's sufficient engine power that it can still do the hot/high/short runway medium distance routes

WOW we now have a new Troll OF The week. Gee you were thinking, was that something new or did you get a new pipe full? Dumb statement as dumb as someone from Airbust thinking the dumb thought he had.

Even if Boeing keeps at what they are doing, they could fix max, develop 797; and if needed, major airlines in the U.S. could begin using the Boeing owned ERJ195-E2 as well as the A220.

wait ... you think they're going to scrap the MAX ? NEVER, it sips fuel even if the 9 needs a tail stick before they let everyone off. Always wondered in an emergency... who's going to throw the stick out ?? How they got that passed is beyond comprehension. The 37-10 is on its way, and I'll do almost anything to avoid it. the max will fly for decades just because of economics. A new 3 version Hi-stepping 57 would've saved the day, if they hadn't been short sighted, even the 57-300 has no replacement yet, and United's and Delta's are getting tired fast ...
