Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q2 2019

When was the last time there was a positive news story came out about Max 737? Despite all the investment and money behind this plane Has anybody actually got anything good to say about the design or the plane? Being honest - it's the ultimate white elephant. It's a liability for Boeing rather than...

Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q2 2019

Boeing tried to fly under the radar with Max 8 737 . Finally exposed. If they think that a software fix can fix the real issue, then they must be dillusional. Software suggests a temporary fix for a much wider bigger hardware problem. Sadly, I see more lives being lost once this plane is airborne.

Airbus demise with the A380 has spectacularly exploded with the A320 to replace crippling orders for the 737 max series.

Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

Boeing is not going to have a good 2019. Boeing’s grounded airliners are likely to be parked longer now that European and Canadian regulators plan to conduct their own reviews of changes the company is making after two of the jets crashed. The Europeans and Canadians want to do more than simply take...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

Why couldn't the mcas be fully turned off? It would seem MCAS was always intended to be hidden in the background. It can only be isolated by turning off electric trim. An 'MCAS ON/OFF' switch in the cockpit would have been rather a giveaway. With a competant system design/limited authority for MCAS...

Assuming that Boeing is found fully or partly responsbile for the death of the 346 people who have died in the crahes in a court of law, at what figures are we looking hypothetically? In an US court 1m USD will not get you far, and that relatively small amount would mean 346m USD. If we are looking...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

This stinks. So reports show a third pilot was required to avert disaster and fly the max 8 safely. If true, incompetence from Boeing at the highest level.
