Re-purpose for military use, offer discounts and see what happens.

AWACS, Materiel Transport, VIP Transport etc.

Airbus right about now though -

Should offer a BOGO deal yes and a few years free maintenance, it might still profit Boeing in the long run.

Next thing you see Caribbean Airlines using 737 to go Tobago, wonder if that is even economically feasible yes.

NATIONAL carrier Caribbean Airlines (CAL) is looking to lease new ATR aircraft to add to its current fleet of five. CAL, in response to questions from the Sunday Express, confirmed that the airline will lease ATR aircraft to enhance the operation of the air bridge and other routes.

Article went on to say CAL is looking to extend the leases of its 737s as the Max replacements were supposed to be coming on all now.

an electrician tell me, neville son from chaguanas, he give me a price to wire an engine that was difficult to wire td27 e-throttle. but added, if i carry it somewhere else, and then bring it back for him to fix, the price is double.
cause, to go through the mess figure it out, undo it, then redo it properly, is plenty wuk and hott head.


they rush it out to save cost and get it earning money, but in the rush, it wasnt done properly, and the modification IS a compensation for an inherent flaw.
