That will certainly make China buy a bunch more Boeing products.

Har Har, like those Chinese jets will sell like hot cakes... it ain't gonna happen.
U.S. gov should make Boeing to get their own shit together so Chinese airlines (by extension Europeans) have no choice but buy US planes...

No one will want your stuff when you stuff is s**t... *cough* 737 Max *cough cough*

China will buy their own planes to start. If they have a decade or so of safe and efficient operations then they can sell them to airlines like Lion Air. Lion Air would be a perfect match for a Chinese-made passenger jet, as anyone who reads the Lion Air accident report will understand that Lion Air has an atrocious safety culture.

In the meanwhile, they'll have reliable and efficient GE engines to power them, and they'll do what they always do: reverse engineer them, steal everything, and produce their own Heroic March 800 line of engines that bear a remarkable resemblance to the GE ones.
