Re: Will airlines require COVID vaccine for employees?

If one reads the article : "In Houston, the 142 breakthrough infections are out of more than 577,000 people who are fully vaccinated. The Houston Health Department says that’s approximately 0.02%. None of them needed to be hospitalized. http://www.khou.com/article/news/health/coronavirus/vaccin...

Re: Will airlines require COVID vaccine for employees?

I live in Arizona and our Covid numbers are going down nicely. The last reported death was April 6. The number of cases is down greatly and hospitalizations are also down. Over 2.5 Arizonans have had at least 1 shot. 850,000 people had Covid. Our population is steadily approaching a high number of i...

Re: Boeing's 737 Max has new problem that will require electrical inspection

I will defer to the EE's on the thread but I am thinking that the power unit was properly grounded by the use of rivets it is being grounded through the rack. Could this be as simple as either replacing the fasteners with rivets or establishing a connection (a wire?) between the unit and the rack?

IMHO I believe IAG will take some of the Max (Air Europa) and possibly some for other ops, the original purpose of the LOI was to show that Boeing still had a friend in a time of crisis. The price that was agreed on may make the decision a bit easier over the price of the NEO's.
