The DC-10 bounced back and remained in passenger service for well over 20 years following the grounding in ‘79, and that included another high-profile accident in United 232 a decade later. Whether people of today forgive and forget is yet to be seen, but there’s a whole lot more wrong at Boeing tod...Jump to post
It will likely be necessary on all future 737 derivatives since Boeing is terrified of clean-sheet designs. We’ll no doubt see it again on the
I almost made a remark about Boeing's inability to meet deadlines and timeframes being worse than NASA's, until I realized that the latter's problems are Boeing's fault too...Jump to post
:facepalm: You guys do know that thousands of guns are on flights daily, right? And if it is checked, who cares. PLENTY OF REAL, LEGAL, LETHAL WEAPONS already fly in the cargo hold anyway, most just don't know about it and it is in crate.

This is just the Airbus equivalent of the Sonic Cruiser, a radical placeholder to make them look innovative until airlines are willing to plunk down money on the next generation of aircraft, all of which will look nothing like this.
Kahless would find such tactics dishonorable.

Your history is backwards. go! began service in June 2006. Aloha went out of business in March 2008, largely because of the undercutting done by...Jump to post
Bought the airline, parked the planes, laid off the employees, and closed the hubs. How in the hell this got past regulators is still beyond me. Letting the company die a natural death and get liquidated would have been kinder.Jump to post
MD-11s have been flying nearly 30 years. The safety data speak for themselves. Yes, it does. The MD-11 has by far the worst safety record of any large airliner introduced since the mid 80s with the exception of the MAX. http://www.airsafe.com/events/models/rate_mod.htm The 737 is a large airliner n...Jump to post

The 767 is still being produced, the 757 is not. The 767 has outsold the 757 by nearly 200 units. Why does everyone still act like the 757 is god's gift to aviation?Jump to post

Which Boeing insider told you that? :-) Because they haven't even launched the type yet... so any prognostications like that are more rumors and wishful thinking. I am an insider. That’s who told me that. Awfully nice to be able to hide behind unverifiab...Jump to post
