This is an interesting situation. It seems wrong to me the government would intervene with a business decision, but I'm sure there is more to it. I'm sure the government subsidizes aircraft manufacturers as it does "big oil"; hence the reason for intervention (to any newcomers, that's sarcasm - our government does not "subsidize" big oil. "Big oil" enjoys much of the same tax write offs as any other corporation - it's a great big LIE from the left to alarm and incense the masses).
