There are currently only 18 MAX in service! So that means, so far, that all are ETOPS.

Just double checked, only 17 of the 18 are ETOPS certified, so not all are ETOPS. We are both wrong :D

Re: Video of Hawaiian Employee Chucking Bags Posted on Twitter

Given the angle at which the bag hits the diagonal slide, this seems like perfectly normal handling of bags. In this new age of “recreational outrage”, people love stiring the pot for nothing.

I pack my bags knowing there will be a certain degree of “handling” during the journey.

Doesn’t it specify on the self serve machine/ customs card that you must declare all foreign food/fruits? And that failure may cause fines/penalties if caught?

If there is a demand, airlines will put the aircraft on it. The max will definitely open up or maintain low yielding routes like these given the CASM savings.
