    I wonder if Boeing is preparing to blame pilots if there is another crash incident(s).

    I don't see why AA cannot predict the cost related. SWA has already done so a month ago saying ours will be around 150 million loss for the first Q. Now this did include the gov shut down, the groundings as well as the labor dispute all in one BUT, why can't AA predict the cost estimate for the single problem of the grounding of 24 airplanes. Sorry, but I do not believe the story.

    Not hard to figure out Swampy, you go with known ticket sales, minus the loss of revenue that the aircraft would normally produce with the class configuration, so how many flights it would have done with loss of those seats plus cargo services.Boeing has to make payments based on non delivery of their end of their contract obligations.
