Even with an earthquake and a tsunami, I'm sure the Japanese will deliver their parts for the 777 long before the Italians deliver theirs. But why the rush? The 777 will probably face another year of production delays. Shame on Boeing if they try to hide behind this disaster the next time they announce another delay.
