The guys who argue that MAX crashes will make material numbers of passengers avoid the type are ignorant of flight incident histories or willfully misrepresent them.
None of those were caused by reckless negligence on the part of the OEM. None of those involved company emails being released admitting that OEM employees wouldn't let their families fly on one and that OEM employees thought that the plane was designed by morons overseen my monkeys or whatever the exact phrase was. None of those crashes happened in the social media age. None of those involved a 1.5 year grounding.kimimm19 wrote:

Tariffs don't affect Mobile built A321s (nor CSeries). The person you're replying to is the one who wrote to their congressperson to try and stop Delta buying A330neos and A350s.N776AU wrote:I’ve always been very passionate about being alive.
Me too actually.n7371f wrote:Delta is essentially asking Boeing to forgo cash flow when it needs it the most - for an order down the road. And ask yourself, who in the world right now would take the 717's? Not sure Boeing is in a position to bend over for Delta.
Very good point. If the leases are as expensive as people seem to suggest they are then that's a great profit centre for Boeing Capital. In a time when they're nodoubt suffering from plenty of leases being in arrears, ending the 717s would not be good for the bottom line.
Of course the whole point of Boeing Capital leasing out older frames is to be able to do exactly the type of deal as suggested here.
Uh no, the DC-10 had multiple flaws and had more accidents than the 73M. And email wasn't around during the DC-10 development. You have no idea what went on.
He also forgot the Turkish DC-10 crash that "Was" negligence. They new for a long time about the cargo doors blowing off and ignored it. Till 300+ people died from it. And the government had docs that they admitted to falsifying. So yes MD was negligent.
