    correction: Boeing did collaborate with comac but set a very high price that china decided to do the long way.

    The Americans can't even build a plan anymore with out a China man involved. They will clone a Boeing and build their own

    Mmm...Nah. I'm not overly concerned- Yet. Will keep an eye on the new effort at Chinese aircraft production, though. Give them another 15 years, and call me back.

    Just because China grounded the 737 first doesn't lend to their credibility. I will NEVER get on a Chinese produced plain.

    Simple. GE must cease selling aircraft engines and spares to China.

    China's Boeing problem. With a huge fleet of Boeing aircraft, China faces the prospect that if the split between the United States and China becomes heated and rancorous enough, the US government could cut China off from spare parts, service updates, and everything else needed from the manufacturer to sustain after sales support. China's fleet of Boeing aircraft could become a total loss.

    I think China had purposely sabotage the two 737 MAX to make Boeing look bad.

    Nah, Chinese made aircrafts are the worst. They're noisy, unreliable and unsafe. Similarly, other countries like Russia have built their own planes, but they have gone nowhere. Despite some accidents here and there, Boeing aircrafts are still the safest on the planet. According to the latest reports, the average person living in the United States has a 1 in 102 chance of dying in a car crash, compared to a 1 in 205,552 chance of dying as a passenger on an airplane.
