One view:

I imagine the planes are excellent once a few things are worked out.

The issue for investors is probably delays.
With the big bird 3 years behind schedule already, imagine another year
of delays while they go through inspections or have to re-engineer
and roll out some battery systems or something.
If they aren't able to ramp up production and continue deliveries they lose money at a very rapid rate.
Not enough to sink them, but enough to erode value a meaningful amount. Billions.
