There is a distinct chance that the 737 max models will *never* again carry passengers. Software fix or no software fix, if the passengers refuse to flu on them, the airlines will dump them.

So, before I consider investing in BA, I'd like to figure out how much it might cost them to permanently ground all those jets, and lose all those future sales of those models.

It only took 3 crashes in the space of 12 months to kill the de Havilland Comet (first commercial jetliner) back in the early 1950's.

I'm looking for an entry point on Boeing below $150. Losing the MAX program will easily chop the company's value in half.
