Re: UA's Munoz: Will be on first 737 MAX flight, willing to change flights for customers

In the end it will probably wind up being the safest aircraft in the sky. Statistically, I don't believe it's possible for the MAX to be the safest plane in the sky at this point. At least not for many, many, many, many, years and many many more sales. In fact, it'll be a while before it can be con...

In the end it will probably wind up being the safest aircraft in the sky. Some people will remain afraid. Kind of like flying on 9/11 here in the States...flight loads have remained low, even though there is likely stepped up security making it safer to fly.

Isn't a big part of this that Spirit will not even check in a passenger less than 45 minutes before departure. If so it will help the airline look good, but if you've stood in line for a half-hour and you get to the counter at 44 minutes before your flight - that might really stink for passengers.
