This article describes a belief that Boeing will move to the next protest step, the Federal Court of Appeals, if the GAO doesn’t rule in its favor. This is not unprecedented, many protests have moved on to this final step. The idea that the Court would continue to put a hold on the contract may not be so true. The Court of Appeals still will most likely rule the way the GAO did, it is very rare that they overturn such a decision. Anyway it seems that this contract fight will continue, the loser being the US Air Force as they wait for a new tanker.
