Maybe it's better if they, the pax, fly on a Boeing missile probably much better safety wise than their newest airframes. I mean I wouldn't want a Boeing missile after me

I read somewhere that one article of the Max purchase agreement is that if Boeing has not delivered the airplane within one year the purchase can be cancelled without penalty. Is that true and if so why wouldn't airlines bleeding cash not walk away from having to pay for expensive new airplanes ?

Coronavirus is working out as a convenient reprieve for Boeing, allowing them to get their ducks in a row with the MCAS issues and beyond. Their distance behind Airbus is reducing as flights and airframes are grounded for one reason or another. If this all ends up in a grotesque shrinkage of the airliner market, then frankly, Boeing are are screwed (government help aside). But if it just ends up as a 12-18 month pause for aviation, then it couldn’t have come at a more convenient time for the company.
