I will bet that non factory parts will fill that void, and cheaper too. I seldom use factory parts unless I can't get generic for what I need
This story will get your blood boiling about any sort of bailout!!!
I would love to have heard the hearings when senate brought up this issue.
The congressman asked if they would sell their jets. Stupid question.
There is a business case for private jets. I used to routinely fly around on a private jet with the company CEO. We would pile him and 6 or 8 other executives into the company jet and go conduct meetings at several locations. One day we had meetings in Detroit, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, Chicago, and then finished up in Detroit again. Try that flying commercial.
This whole thing is a wet dream for conservatives who what to see the UAW go away and liberals who want to make Detroit pay for "destroying the environment" with those nasty gas guzzlers.
Everyone on the plane seemed oblivious, except for the two engineers...
I do not like to get off the ground, look at what happened to Air Florida with iced up wings & the eventual demise of the airline. :(

Hope is not a plan!
There was at one time a business case for an airplane, now, perhaps, not so much. HD Video Tele-Conferece can be set up almost anywhere in a matter of minutes. Computers and the internet...real-time conversation and document transfer.

That said, if it's time for blue collar workers to get competitive with the foreign workforce, it's time to take a look at executive compensation. It's ridiculous. Stock holders are getting fleeced.
