Early Max-8 delivery slots available.. wonder if any of these frames will fit into plans at a certain national carrier

If it is the same national carrier I have in mind, then please don't - lest their early arrival conjure up similar farce as that befallen upon the semi-premium/half-LCC indeterminate breed domiciled in same country as afore-mentioned national carrier  :D

Ah yes, but such farcical antics are but the bread and butter of said national carrier - especially given that said nations aviation regulator had been blindsided by the semi-premium/half-LCD indeterminate breed carriers farcical fleet planning in a year that the international organization of aviation is conducting an oversight review of said nations aviation system that could, should said review be of negative outcome, result in adverse consequences for future fleet acquisitions of the original aforementioned national carrier as a result of restrictions similar to that of a neighboring nation to the said nation in question. Alas - I conjure bullshit arguments for pure entertainment nowadays for it is known to release the inner keyboard warrior responses. Let such flow, now.

By the way. On a separate note, such administration of airlines should be carefully reviewed and studied to understand the wider implications of the extensive cost pressures upon airlines resulting from the ever-broadening spectrum of operating business models. Alitalia... Air Berlin... Monarch.. what is happening to Europe is the result of a brewing storm over the last 20-25 years - that seems to be how long it takes for LCCs to completely destabilize their full service compatriots. Who is next?

This is coming approximately 16 years after shock-consolidation (9-11 the proverbial nail) and administration in the US industry.. on a trend basis - one could foreshadow a similar instance in the Asia-Pacific in the not-too-distant future, with an erosion of distinction in services amongst the major legacy carriers already apparent; and airlines already venturing into dynamic operating models - departing from traditional business streams whilst trying to buck the trend almost like salmon swimming upstream to spawn... not all are gonna make it past the "bear" market conditions that are inevitable.. and those that do are going to be extremely worn and post flat results for years before the resurgence takes place... and that resurgence is realy hard to predict and understand especially given the violent cyclical nature of the global economy and its sporadic reaction to shock - often knee-jerk as a result of mindless information processing..

Interesting, but somewhat worrying times ahead..
