The public is about to get its first glimpse of the financial impact that the 737 Max crisis is having on Boeing, with the company set to report Q1 results before Wednesday’s opening bell. Boeing said this month that it is cutting production of the aircraft, which was involved in two crashes in five months. Update: Boeing’s Q1 results were largely in-line with expectations, though it missed on revenue. The company also said it would take a hit of at least $1 billion from the crisis.

Snap’s stock took off after the bell on Tuesday, then came back to earth during the company’s earnings call, on which the platform reported a smaller-than-expected loss and user growth. Here’s what to look for when Facebook, which is expected to disclose revenue of just less than $15 billion, posts its Q1 numbers this afternoon.

United started the rollout on Tuesday with a video of the new paint scheme, and it has events planned for today in Chicago.
