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

I see that a Southwest max 8 N8703J is up and flying. Is it still Boeing tests or some kind of certification flights? It feels like the Boeing mcas tests should be done.

edit: im not good with flightradar but it seems its testing mcas.

Re: Passenger repeatedly punches back of reclined seat

10 years back or so Cathay Pacific had a seat that didn’t affect other passengers when you reclined it only affected your own legroom, I thought that was a nice solution.

Re: Updated: IG (Air Italy) Ending Operations

If i was a 737 pilot with Much experience and didn’t mind to live in Seattle for a while I would contact Boeing. I guess they will need extra pilots when/if they get the max back in the air.

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

A 737-9 is on the way from Moses lake to BFI. Could it be because they want a 9 also as test plane or is it going for some kind of checkup after long storage?

Re: Boeing 777X Testing/Production Thread - 2020

My guess as an amateur is that you can fly pretty fast with gear down if you want because of the thin air up there.

Re: Ryanair submits offer to Boeing on new 737MAX order

The question is what you get first 320 or 737. We have no Idea when the max is back in the air, Airbus can at least give a delivery time.

Re: Boeing 777-9 first flight 25 January 2020

I might be one of the few but I love the 777 and I really look forward to fly on the 777x.
I always try to choose a seat just in front of wing where I can see the huge GE engine and the wing.
787 have the sexiest wing on the market so far but I hope a fully loaded 777x will flex her wings a lot too.

I dont think the max will fly again, i even think it might make Boeing go bancrupt either soon because of all they have to pay because of the max or after some years when they dont have Money for badly needed new models and cant compete with Airbus anymore.

Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q4 2019, Production suspended

The longer this takes the more I think the MAX will never fly again, or fly again with a new certificate and aerodynamic changes.
Boeing’s problem seems to be that the plane needs to be safe without MCAS also.

Re: The Boeing 787-10 range: how far can it stretch its wings ?

Wouldn’t it be more logical for Emirates to take the -10 instead of -9? Seems to me it cover a lot of their routes including all Europe and they can use A350/777x for the longer routes. Or does the heat in Dubai make the capacity much lower?

Re: Cebu Pacific order 194 seat A320neo & 460 seat A330neo

I fly with them every year and as a foreigner you just pay a little extra to get a good seat, for Filipinos it’s not a problem with the cramped seating since most of them are small.

Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q4 2019, Production suspended

I think Boeing shut down the line because they know that this will take a long time.
Maybe they have to redesign the plane to make it possible to certified it without MCAS.
I doubt it’s back in service first half of 2020.
