While this article is focused on overall orders and deliveries, it does break things down by aircraft type, and the orders lost for 737 are savage, 1,034 out of a Boeing total order drop of 1,026 (Boeing also lost 4 747 orders and 1 777, but gained 11 767 and 2 787, explaining how 737 lost more than the Boeing total).

Yeah, it's been devastating. my father got laid off today at the SLC plant after working in that same building since 1988, back when it was a McDonnell Douglas facility.

"The Federal Aviation Administration is proposing inspections of 25 Boeing 737 Max 9s after determining that a fuel sealant was not applied during manufacturing."

Apparently in the event of a fuel leak in the wing it creates a drain path onto the engine, which is less than ideal. The problem was the work instructions, not a problem with the staff on the shop floor.

From Pierson's conclusion:
"In summary, many important questions still remain unanswered. At the top of the list, is whether the 737 MAX, 737 NG and P-8 Poseidon have defective AOA Sensors or electrical system problems that could lead to another preventable tragedy? This question needs to be thoroughly investigated. The FAA’s recertification fixes fail to adequately address these issues."
