it seems boeing was selling essential safety equipment as optinal. they knew the consequences and calculated risk as being so low it can be ignored. They will now have to pay compensation for al the lives lost as wel as all the business lost due to grounding aircraft as well as all the extra costs for hiring planes when theirs were sitting idle.

International Airline Group (holding company for British Airways and Iberia) and Air Canada have just placed an order for 200 plus B737 MAXI aircraft.

There is also an impending QANTAS order as QANTAS has a choice between the A321 neo or B737 MAXI. Because QANTAS already operates more than 80 B737 aircraft, it is likely the MAXI will win that order too. It is unlikely QANTAS will go Airbus because they are already set up with Boeing and it just costs too much to go Airbus.

I guess that is your answer.

My personal opinion on the IAG's so called 200 orders for the MAX was to give Boeing a boost of confidence that it needed at the Paris Air Show in the midst of many negatives, so I believe it was a coordinated attempt by Boeing and IAG to try and stop the drain on MAX's reputation of being a safe plane or not. The fact that no other orders came in for the MAX, only goes to highlight my suspicions. Of course, placing a large order of planes with a hand shake and without a commitment and actually buying those planes is two different things.

Early this year I flew few times in and out of Singapore to nearby destinations on JETSTAR using Airbus 320's, which provided on-time services. I believe JetStar is operated by Qantas. Is this correct, Paphitis? Also, what do you think of JetStar. I was skeptical at first with this airline, but I have grown to like it.

As Kikapu says, they have not actually signed an order .... it is just an expression of intent!

The problem is, if they follow through with the order and there is just one accident where there is loss of life then BA (IAG) and Qantas will go down with them as passengers will refuse to fly with airlines that use 'dangerous' aeroplanes! :roll:

IMO: Boeing is in real trouble regarding credibility and safety!

...indeed, it will be hard to sell Boeing products to Canadians, given that the forced sale of Bombardier's C series business to Airbus, is hard to forget, and is directly related to their hostility as player, in a market they are only preparing to go into.
