And now China is developing C929 which the same size of Boeing A787, this is what Boeing really worry about. Boeing can use FAA to reject C929 in the coming days. But China can sell these cheaper aircrafts to Chinese cities and maybe Africa or middle east contries. Sooner or later, C929 will be accepted by the whole world. (BTW, the engine of C929 is being develped by China and Russia)

China like Bok Choy price, meaning it is affordable for the masses. Now Bok Choy price will be coming to airplane in the future. AR-21 is just the warn up act, CR-929 is also in the works,. So we got AR-21, C-919, CR-929 just for appetizer. Capisco 🤣

Does anyone else get the impression that when the Chinese made the ARJ21, they just took the fuselage of an MD-80, removed a few sections, then slapped the wings and engines of a CRJ aircraft on and gave it a new name?

So Boeing's planes crashed and killed Chinese people and Wendover wants to say China is the problem? And Boeing won't provide compensation because then they'll have to compensate other countries where the planes were grounded but had not yet crashed? Sounds like the communists have taken over the world. Capitalism dictates that it would be fair for Boeing to compensate China and only China. Then again it would be a very typical capitalist, American, and Western culture as a whole move to avoid taking responsibility for their failures.

The republican government of the USA gave away any strength that the FAA had. Another right wing fuck up. They just signed the death warrent for Boeing. It is time for Boeing to rebrand itself and get out if the hotly small aircraft market (50-125 capacity) it is a no win sector as there are 7 or more company's trying to make this type. It is time to get the next 747 style (wide body, since the market has all but abandoned the wide body. ( And also go into the I outer space market and livable satilite market

FAA is as deep trash bodies that no one can believe. They care more about the $$$ than actually the life on the victim of the plane crash. As much as China is evil. This move by them is anything but good.

Going on Boeing's recent performance China would be better off sticking with Airbus or making their own. China is not especially known for quality products but I'm sure they can surpass that of Boeings :)

This is misleading...... Boeing has fleets of aircraft in the moharve desert which could be leased to china..but they have not ? The scrappage scheme for the max is scheduled to take place in the near future. Boeing has had a problem in many of its aircraft due to poor management and quality over a number of years. It should have scrapped the max immediatly, sold the dreamliner and 737 early models to the chineese, plugged the hole where the max was with an integration of embraer regional jet designs and moved on like airbus did with the A220. So why is there soo much incompetance in boeing? The flying coffin is dead like the repeat story of the DC10...can america ever compete with such repeat failures ?
AcidBot66 20 days ago
Boeing is virtually a defunct company and will survive exclusively from American defense contracts. Boeing has lost credibility and there are tons os people that will not dare to board an aircraft if it is made by Boeing anymore. The only way for Boeing to try to recover confidence is to provide free parachutes for all passengers!

China hasn’t had a proper car brand yet. It’s a long way for a decent commercial plane. What a empty content this video had me wasted time on. Besides, the narrator’s voice was annoying.

In ten years the Chinese are not going to buy a single jet from Boeing.

The reality is Airbus and it’s suppliers can’t possibly fill the gap left by the Max grounding. The Max will be back in service and fulfilling its orders soon and it will be perhaps the most scrutinized airliner in history. Making it very safe. And this chapter in its history will soon be forgotten by the general public.

Irrelevant. China will tear a couple of those planes apart and in 4 years Boeing will have a new competitor. China is not inventive. But it is good at creating clones.

USA is hurting; The fake president is doing his best to loose the American world leadership. So is Boeing and FAA. Trump is selling out East Europe to Putin, enabling Putin to continue his dream to restore the Sovjet empire as a Russian empire. The western alliance is breaking up thanks to Trump. Who knows what will come out of this Trumpian mess?!

Boeing had to learn the hard lesson from companies like Caterpiller not to set up a manufacturing center in China because the Communists will just take it over and steal all of your trade secrets.

Just to be clear, China isn't even buying their own airliners. How many ARJ-21 Chinese airliners have they sold? TWENTY SIX. That's it.

To the Boeing Company: The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that corporations are people. Congress can impute to a corporation the commission of certain criminal offenses and subject it to criminal prosecution therefor. In actions for tort, a corporation may be held responsible for damages for the acts of its agent within the scope of his employment, even if done wantonly, recklessly or against the express orders of the principal. While corporations cannot commit some crimes, they can commit crimes which consist in purposely doing things prohibited by statute, and in such case they can be charged with knowledge of acts of their agents who act within the authority conferred upon them.

Majority of the avionics, and other subsystems of C-919 rely on American suppliers so its success could be a good news to American companies in a way.
