Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounding, General Discussion Thread, Q3 2020

There have been lots of great debates and arguments in this thread throughout the last year however one very important point will soon come to light and that is... will passengers fly in the MAX? I took an unofficial poll with roughly 40 people in the last few weeks to see if they knew they were goi...

It would be helpful to know which of the ten doors failed.

If it was one of them, my guess would be it was not properly latched/secured. The Type C &...
