Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

Let me make something clear, since it seems im not being understood properly. I'm not comparing the 330 series with the Max. Someone on the last 5 pages said something that there was ONLY one documented case of the A3XX series where the "sensors" all became unreliable, which im trying to s...

In maintainance, having one type of failure is considered better than unconnected failures in the same equipment. Normally this happens in old worn out equipment where different parts give out. The reliability of max is now under serious question. Then both the 787 and A32N reliabilities are under ...
