Apparently this is due to an airworthiness directive issued by EASA which now limits the aircraft’s center of gravity envelope. Thoughts on this, seeing as capacity is usually a major selling point?
Most people agree that reasonable accommodations need to be made for the disabled, but when you start allowing miniature horses on commercial flights, things have definitely gone haywire and become unreasonable. I'm sorry, but the fact that "emotional support" animals have only been a thi...Jump to post
With the backlog it’s got, there’s no way Boeing can just shrug their shoulders and not get TPFKAM* back in the air. *The Plane Formerly Known As MAX. :wink2: In all officials documents this is the 737-8/9 Honestly? I thought this plane was going to be called the 737-8, -9 and -10 from the beginnin...Jump to post

mistake was made by choosing MAX instead of clean sheet. ^This x1000. I have always felt that the 797 should have been the clean-sheet replacement for the 737 (even if it would have been available a few years after the 320NEO), with the longest 797 model being the 757 replacement/321XLR competitor....Jump to post
One defect with 4 aircraft generations of 737, is the latest iteration uses the previous iteration as the baseline (plus scaling), not the 100/200 for which the original type certificate is held. Well, two defects in the history of the airplane if you include the defective PCU/rudder hard over inci...Jump to post

Seriously? We're on an aviation web site, in the year 2019, with (mostly) adults discussing, and about half of the posters in this thread seem to be ok with some sort of "ghost" going for a pee in the rear lavatory on Aeromexico? Ghosts are what people name things they can't explain or co...Jump to post
Say you have an aircraft A that has 60 year old design and for example hydraulic controls and the amount of force to move the elevator is 20N. In fairness, the only thing on the 737 that is "60-years old" is the shape of the nose. Everything else has been changed/updated by now, has it not?Jump to post
There's no such thing as ghosts - thus a debate about video 'evidence' is unnecessary. People have been seeing/hearing/photographing and filming paranormal activity for literal centuries. You can't possibly tell me every single instance is not true? Maybe no scientist has had the courage to try and...Jump to post
Boeing is a company in deep trouble. If you do not think there are problems at Charleston just ask a few airlines about what they have found and you will find the NYT article to be spot on. FAA is not what it used to be and also needs a major shake up. When you only have one company in the country ...Jump to post

Is Boeing becoming like US car makers? Building new products that are so far behind technological progress that buyers turn towards foreign makers who make much better and cheaper stuff. Is the 737 MAX the SUV of short-haul? Other than the fact the fuselage of a MAX is shaped like a plane from 1958...Jump to post

This was also the very day that Don Coryell was hired by the San Diego Chargers.

Lets say it does happen... would B6 likely go the way of CO and be absorbed into UA? Maybe that would be a time for UA to rebrand and get rid of the CO paint job? Thoughts? The CO paint job is good for UA, but a sad reminder for the world of the death of a once great airline. If UA does to B6 what ...Jump to post
