Who's going to blink first - Boeing or Congress?
Care to share?

Earlier this week, AviationWeek published an interview it had with Boeing CEO David Calhoun who said that the MAX 10 would not be developed if it required meeting the FAA’s new standards. “If I lose the fight [to avoid that requirement], I lose the fight.”

This is a game of the highest-stakes poker.  Who do you think blinks first?
