What issues are you referring too in regards to the A350 or 220? Just curious. Are those issues being talked about in another thread?
A220 - engine failures
A350 - engine shutdowns after liquid spillage in the cockpit
In particular only by lucky chance did we not lose two A350s. If we apply the same theory with the MAX, we have to ask the question - what else have we missed?
I think you know why. You are not naive to believe that anyone here actually has faith in Boeing anymore? Boeing NEEDS to prove to everyone that they will change for the future but that board is behind the 43 billion in share buy backs and 2 months after the Indonesian crash, they authorized another 20 billion of share buybacks. That board are still there, those same bean counters who put profit over safety and prioritized pushing the stock price higher hasn't been cleaned out. No one here believes that Boeing is going to change because of that.
Those engine problems that the A220 and A350 has recently been dealing with. You seem to be trying to obfuscate and misguide forum readers since even Boeing is suffering that with their Dreamliners. Your not bringing them up are you?
You may be angry with the way people are attacking Boeing and relentlessly pointing out their faults, but shouldn't Boeing be attacked? When 70% of the fuel tanks in those recently built Maxes have foreign debris in them. That isn't the huge issue I have. I have deep worries about the Maxes that have already been delivered and are with airlines. If 70& of those Maxes at Renton have debris then the Maxes with the airlines that were flying have them as well. Are those planes being inspected? I haven't heard a peep if they are.
Boeing hasn't changed, they still have the same corporate culture that emphasis profit over safety. And you don't think we here shouldn't be a little worried about flying on those planes? Those planes are simply put, unsafe. Its not just the MCAS people are worried about but the entire plane and how it was built. Safety is not Boeing's first priority and you cannot convince anyone here that it is.
And since we live in the age of internet and social media. Unlike the DC10 that everyone likes to point out survived their multiple crash history. You didn't have those 2 back then. If you did, the DC10 would be dead and people would of avoided flying on those planes. A lot of pundits think people are ignorant and will fly on any plane when the Max gets re-certified. After the amount of bad press the Max has suffered, that is a bit arrogant to make that assumption.
The airlines that depend on the Max need the plane to recover. They are committed to the plane regardless of the situation. They can't go to Airbus and order A320's. There isn't any slots for 7 years. United is taking the step of bringing the Maxes in after everyone else does to prove to the public its safe. Airlines like Ryanair want to re-brand and trick passengers that its not a Max they are flying on. But you know what? That is going to backfire big time because there will be groups that will spring up to fight this misinformation and its going to cost those airlines dearly. I really don't think these executives realize how in tune people are when it comes to what is going on. Everyone knows about the Max, even people that don't fly.
Even when the Max gets re-certified and it will. We are going to see how Boeing responds whether they re-brand or how the Airlines respond whether they are going to be like United and inform passengers they are flying on a Max or hide it like Ryanair who are already calling their Maxes 8200. Its actually going to be quite interesting this year and next as the Max returns to service, how many Maxes get delivered and whether the flying public will fly on the Maxes.
For me I have my guesses, mostly from the friends and family members I have talked to. "Have you heard about the Max" "What do you know about it" "Do you look at what plane your flying on when you order online" I have to tell you, if your a flyer, people look at what plane they are flying on. And that is going to be a problem for Boeing. Re-brand or not, they have a big decision to make down the road.
