An editor-in-chief from China dropped a hint that commercial aircraft may be impacted shortly as China reacts to tariffs imposed by Donald Trump in the on-going trade dispute.  As China is the largest potential market for the troubled 737 MAX, selling to the Chinese may be critical to Boeing’s future cash flows and competitive position.
