They are not making the sorts of mistakes that people are pointing at for the Lion Air and Ethiopian pilots and saying they made.
Yes they may have been able to make a different choice and they may have saved their plane, their passengers and their own lives!
BUT the MAX threw something at them they did not cope with. Something that killed them.
True. WN alone also flew 40,000 MAX flights 90,000+ hours before the grounding with no incidents. WN thinks its safe now. Just saying.
So you agreeing with StTim that 90,000+ hrs is a trivial number and WN are bonkers? Praise the Lord.
As has already been repeated in these forums; 90,000 hrs is what the worldwide NG fleets rack up in about two days.
Hence, if NGs replicated the MAX safety record to date, they would be falling out of the sky at the rate of one a week.
Good to have you aboard at long last!
