I can't help but suspect that the airlines will not be lining up to receive and put the very first deliveries into fleet operation?

Boeing hiring as it targets 737 MAX fights resuming 'early fourth quarter'

Boeing posts worst quarterly loss ever

Reports loss of nearly $3 bln in second quarter 2019 after grounding of 737 MAX jets following two deadly crashes


OT - story

When we were running short of AESOPs (my trade) to back seat crew pilot training, cross country or ferry flights to heavy maintenance in Montreal suggestion made we train up a few clever techs for the tasks. I was sent three volunteers to train. One dropped out due to a health issue (they discovered when he did an aircrew medical that he was diabetic), the other two filled a lot of seats for us so the operational guys could get a break when they weren't at sea. Clearly they were not there to hunt subs but we did give them hoist training and basic radar ... for those 'worst-case' situations.
