Boeing Is Building A New Jet To Cater To Beijing's 'One Belt, One Road'

Even after China led the global grounding of Boeing's 737 MAX 8 following the March 10 crash of ET302 - the second deadly crash under similar circumstances within five months - and even with Boeing's planes becoming a top target for Beijing in the ongoing trade spat with the US, it's possible that the aerospace company might lead the ranks of American firms seeking to cater to President Xi's "One Belt, One Road" initiative - much to Washington's consternation, we imagine.

According to the South China Morning Post, Boeing sees potential for an aircraft that would make more routes viable between nations involved in the BRI - something that could fly on medium range routes where the 737 is too small to accommodate airlines' needs and the larger 787 are too big and costly to fly.
