So you might have heard of it, or not, candidates to replace Theresa May as UK Prime Minister are debating whether it would be a good idea to prorogue (shut down) parliament before the 31st October deadline for Brexit, in order for the Prime Minister to take the country out of the EU without opposi...Jump to post

Yes, would the NG need MCAS if it were certified today? Since MCAS was designed to meet a force gradient spec., what is the force gradient of the -700, -900, MAX 7 to MAX 10? That would explain a lot. With respect, I think that's a somewhat pointless question. My understanding is that MCAS was requ...Jump to post

It is due to the 737MAX10 having an extension on the landing gear therefore the engine does not need to be moved forward like other 737MAX models for ground clearance Are we sure?

List prices are not - and have never been - indicative of how much airlines actually pay. A weak argument to think it matters.

Very simple answer with HA. Boeing sold for a very low price below production cost. Airbus can not follow, because that would be dumping, because the sale is to an USA airline.
