Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q3 2019

And the flights that did not crash did not encounter the problems at take-off but during cruise. A lot of more room to handle the problem and a stickshaker is much less of a problem then. But as the flight manual does not even know MCAS at the time of the Lion Air crash and the failure condition do...

Re: Should airline regulators consider grounding B737 MAX series

No, these developing countries have crashed numerous 737NG and A320 aircraft. No one called for grounding those fleets. But those were pilot errors and bad maintenance. The MAX keeps diving and pilots can't do anything about it. Nice intelligent comment that is completely factually incorrect. If it...

Re: Leeham: VLA era is over; are 779/A35K too large?

the flight computer predicted 9.5t fob at the end of the delivery flight but they ended up with 12.5t Well yes if the A35K burns 30% less fuel than projected then 777X, 787, A380, A330, A320, 737, and CSeries will be in trouble. Or the aircraft used 3 tones less fuel than predicted for the flight.
