Yet another 737 runway overrun.. shocked, I tell you, shocked..
Looks like the runway was quite wet. Wonder if there was a strong tail/crosswind?
Ironic reasons given the mess with the MAX. Indeed. To order such a dubious aircraft would require some serious discounts. The A320NEO is currently flying all over the world. The 737 MAX is just filling up parking lots with lots of angry customers. Not so long ago, Airbus had quite a glider collect...Jump to post

Nothing happened to the passengers. Therefore there are no damages to claim. How many times does this need to be said for you to believe it? Good grief. Just because no incident happened that’s A-OK?

Even if one was to accept this most straw-clutching reach of logic, can you point out the damage caused to these plaintiffs in this action? Sure. They continued to allow an unsafe aircraft to fly, even after the rest of the world grounded it. They were putting profit before safety. Doesn’t take a g...Jump to post
The $1m per aircraft penalty for sim training was pretty prohibitive, don’t you think? Not that I’m denying Boeing’s culpability, but to say that Southwest had no effect in the mess the MAX is in now is being either obtuse or dishonest.

WN have had a huge influence in the development of the various 737s, which has resulted in the extreme grandfathering/limitations implemented by Boeing. The most obvious one being the prohibition of sim training resulting in the need for MCAS. WN did not prohibit sim training, they just reflected t...Jump to post

You only need to ask one simple question: Would those two aircraft have crashed if they were NGs. The answer is obviously a resounding NO, which leads us right back to the point of Max airworthiness. It stands to reason the Max with MCAS V1.0 should never have been certified to operate commercial s...Jump to post

Looks great, sadly the old CW will be around a LONG time with the 744 fleet keeping the current seats as they will be around until 2023 or 24.

I did, once. It was the same crappy 737 experience we all know and love/hate* (delete as applicable).

Boeing is a company in crisis. I hate to say it but their survival as a leading commercial aircraft manufacturer is in jeopardy. The drip drip of bad news is killing them.

Boeing rightfully has deserved a lot of criticism recently, but I fail to see how this is their fault. It’s no shock that deliveries of aircraft are often subject to delays for a myriad of reasons. KLM should have planned this with a larger buffer to factor in any potential delays.Jump to post
Am I wrong in thinking this is actually not all that uncommon? Not saying it's ok, just that it happens more often than it makes its way to a.net.

Without a doubt the aircraft I detest is the crappy Boeing 737.

It's all about the pitch for me, and I am not sure about going on an LCC for that reason. Don't forget seat width, too. Both pitch and width make for a comfortable, or uncomfortable flight.
