Now Boeing is blaming the potential revenue hit on "delays by regulators." Nicely done, Boeing PR.
Strikes me as quite scary for Boeing shareholders that the Company is desperate enough to take an antagonistic line towards the lead regulator (rather than the collaborative approach previously presented).
