Southwest Airlines to Leave Newark Airport as Toll of Boeing’s 737 Max Grounding Grows

Posted by Stephen Petrey on Friday, July 26, 2019

Amie Tsang for the New York Times:

Southwest, reporting second-quarter earnings, said that as a result of the troubled jet’s grounding, its passenger numbers had declined, its costs had increased and it had lost an estimated $175 million in profit. Operating income for the second quarter was $968 million, $4 million less than the same period the year before.

Kind of remarkable. I wonder how much worse this will get before an airline sues Boeing for losses.
