Last week FAA declared testing on the 777X would be tougher.

Too late apparently

Take into consideration there are no US based 777X customers. There's no way Boeing can again try to get around EASA and other foreign authorities.
Boeing, US congress and FAA can no longer, shoulder to shoulder, work the system. They created this situation themselves, by half-informing, bending & pushing.

They may have been legally be right, pushing congress around for new rulings, streamlining FAA, allow FAA to make exemptions, self regulation.
But they lost trust. & credibility Translate that in free cash flow..
