Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q2 2019

I wonder how much of the max backlog will actually ever be produced and/or delivered? In my opinion which of course is meaningless I would guess around 80% of the backlog will be produced plus of course there will be many more orders in the coming years. The people who think that MAX won't fly comm...

No, he talks about "by end of 2019", not "end of 2019". This means anytime between now and 31/12/19.

Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

I know I am not going to feel comfortable putting myself or a family member on a 737 Max until they absolutely have figured out what's going on. And at the rate this is going, all but guaranteed, there will be another 737 Max crash within months. WOW! "All but guaranteed" and what is your...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

People choosing to avoid the MAX is neither idiotic nor a total overreaction. On the contrary, given the two crashes with some surface similarities in such a short time frame, and without much to go on to assuage their fears, avoiding the MAX seems completely rational on a personal level. The incid...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

For the people saying that they will avoid the MAX at all costs, this is just plain idiotic and a total overreaction.

There is ZERO evidence connecting this incident to the Lion Air incident. Until further information comes to light there is no reason to suggest that they are related.

No one knows what caused this incident, it is mind boggling that people are calling to ground the entire fleet with absolutely ZERO evidence that it was caused by a design flaw.
