With confirmation by the Federal Aviation Administration that recertification of the 737 MAX won't happen until 2020, Boeing is rapidly facing a decision whether to reduce or suspend MAX production.
With no end in sight, Boeing can't continue production of the MAX at the rate of 42/mo much longer.
Through Dec. 6, there were just under 400 MAXes that have been produced. Another 381 MAXes were in service when global regulators grounded the fleet March 11-13.
No end of grounding in sight
Boeing only a month ago thought the MAX would be recertified this month. The FAA administrator, Stephen Dickson, quickly shot that down. Today, he was specific in an interview with CNBC and in testimony before Congress.
