Re: PIA A320 (flight PK8303) crashes in Karachi

It would seem that many posters are recognising that there is a severe limitation, at this time, on information available, but as usual, try to pronounce conclusions based on the information available being both correct and total. For instance, that the first landing attempt is the start of the even...

Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounding, General Discussion Thread, March 2020

There is one problem. How is Boeing going to pay for the replacement of the MAX? The current crisis means that Boeing is stuck with the MAX. As such they cannot cancel it anymore. They need the cash and thus they need t find a way to get it into the air. Even worse, this crisis may just mean that t...

Airlines would be grateful not to have to take their rather optimistic orders, and Boeing won’t make a loss on building ...
