After two deadly crashes in five months involving its 737 Max 8 aircraft, Boeing finds itself in a precarious position.




In the worst outcome for Boeing, investigators could find that the aerospace manufacturer "deliberately took shortcuts" with instruction manuals, training procedures, or anything else related to its 737 Max aircraft, and airlines could lose their trust in Boeing, said Henry Harteveldt, the founder of the travel research company Atmosphere Research Group.




In that case, airlines could cancel orders for 737 Max or other Boeing aircraft.



After two deadly crashes in five months involving its 737 Max 8 aircraft, Boeing finds itself in a precarious position. The damage the crashes cause for Boeing will depend on the findings of investigators, said Henry Harteveldt, the founder of the travel research company Atmosphere Research Group.
"This definitely damages Boeing's reputation," he said. "The question is, how quickly will the investigations in Indonesia and Ethiopia reveal conclusive evidence of what may have caused those accidents?"
