Considering it was China that banned MAX first its easy to say this has nothing to do with safety. Just a perfect tool to strike US/Trump trade policies. Just my opinion. Than why would the UK ban these aircraft? They are about to leave the EU, they need a new trade deal with the USA asap. Its fine...Jump to post
You might not feel the same way if like that Slovakian MP, you had lost your wife and two children in this latest crash. What if the plane was improperly configured for flight? The FO had 200 hours of flight experience. The plane seemed unable to climb, pointing possibly to non deployment of flaps....Jump to post
A rookie chef would not be able to handle the knife skills of a seasoned Japanese hibachi chef. A well-trained and confidant pilot will have no issue handling an issue on the 737Max. The procedure for disabling the trim has remained the same since the 1960's. I love how people who are not airline p...Jump to post
Unfortunately in this “everything is viral” era, Boeing and the North American airlines are creating a huge mess for themselves by not grounding the planes.... go on and head to their social media accounts... its brutal.. Hope this get resolved quickly, so unfair for Boeing as they have more rights...Jump to post
Can't wait to see it.
I wonder if they will show folding winglet operation.
Almost makes RR look desperate.
Future will tell but that's a dangerous move if you ask me.
Folks... There is a HUGE difference between an "accusation" and "suggesting a possibility". There is also a difference between saying a pilot intentionally crashing "IS" the cause and "COULD BE" the cause. There is also a "HUGE" difference between d...Jump to post
It is sad that some will get offended over a possible cause of a crash and act if they are possibly insulted. Causes get dismissed as being highly unlikely over other possibilities. First off.... your feelings don't matter in an investigation. The FBI conducts a criminal investigation along side th...Jump to post
At special shareholder meeting, 96.8 per cent of all votes cast were in favour of the transaction. Shareholders approved the proposal that will establish a joint venture made up of the commercial aircraft and services operations of Embraer. Boeing will hold an 80 per cent ownership stake in the new...Jump to post
My understanding is that the ATC recording indicates that more than one person was in the cockpit as this unfolded. Unless we consider that there was some conspiracy between them, (which is straight out of Hollywood) then deliberate pilot action is ruled out. Pilot suicide/murder was a possibility ...Jump to post
That looks pretty intense.
I hope we get to know what was the cause.
Now that I think of it, I could have brought up the A350-800 too! Yup, immediately after reading your post I thought "wait, he forgot the still-born A350-800"! Some more 8's ... For Airbus, its second '8' came with the A318 . Uncompetitive against both its larger siblings and large RJs, i...Jump to post

Its a very smart move for Delta to fly the A220 into cities that are its main competitors hubs. AA and UA do not have a domestic plane that can compete with the A220 on routes between each of the US3's hubs. I think its even fair to say coach class on the DL A220 far better than a UA/AA first class...Jump to post
Man I wish we could do this in the States. Wrongest comment I've read in a while. It's perfectly fine if someone personally believes something like that.

Ok then Donald. Disgusting what this world is coming to. Just horrific. But this is the new normal for those of us who aren't white. Stop with that bullshit.

We should listen to both sides before we judge this guy or the crew. There is probably more to this than what we see in the video.

just like the country. I find this to be an odd statement. Every Cuban has health care, dental care, a place to work, a place to live, food to eat and all the education he desires.

FAA must be in Boeing’s pocket. We all know that folding wingtips are a security and operation risk and that planes are going to fall out the sky and passengers going to die because tip of the wing can move up and down.

A final decision is needed because last year Air Asia X was contemplating switching the entire NEO order to A350s. And it really doesn't make sense to operate 10 A350s alongside the large NEO order. This is likely just a bargaining ploy for better pricing from Airbus. I'll eat crow if I have to, bu...Jump to post

Huh ? Visitors from the following countries don’t require visas to visit the USA for stays up to 90 days.
