The headlines is misleading by making the reader believe that the 737 MAX was the reason Boeing had profits, when in fact, it’s commercial side of the business lost considerable amount of money, but the defense sector and services were the part which pushed Boeing into profits, but still nowhere the Billions it has lost in the last couple of years.

Be that as it may, if they actually investigated the faults and corrected them it means it would have cost them more money coupled with the fact that they are not making any sales of this aircraft during that time, which means it would have meant a bigger loss that what they had. But to release aircraft into operational use that are unfit for purpose, heads have to role. People have died because of their greed. But I guess it was not American lives so its not so bad.

Actually, the B737 Max has an extremely good order book so in terms of sales, the MAX would probably be the biggest contributor to revenue and sales, and hence profit.

that will not change, because the MAX is arguably the best airliner in our skies. The only real competitiror to it is the A320/A321.

These are the utility trucks of the airline industry.

Ffs, 180 incidents happen per month at United.

Which are reported as an Air Safety Incident and reported to FAA and Transport Safety Board.

That’s what happens when there is a fleet of 1200 aircraft averaging 2.5 sectors each a day.

The MAX fleet is much larger than that so a couple of engine failures, and various issues with Autopilots, Nav systems, flight controls, fuel control units, etc are inevitable.


But I would like to know what an engine failure has to do with the Boeing Max? Boeing don’t make the engines and the same engines are found on Airbus and many other aircraft.

Crap journalism is what this is…

Fact of the matter is this. The MAX is a very sophisticated aircraft or machine. These aircraft have malfunctions every single day somewhere around the globe. That’s why there are Minimum Equipment Lists which allow these aircraft to operate with certain permissible malfunctions. It’s extremely common for things to break or for Flight Systems to malfunction.

It’s actually quite rare not to find a malfunction of some sort on these aircraft, which is why they are MELed and stickered out and recorded in the Flight Manual. There are 3, 7, 14 and 30 day MELs.

As for engine failures and forced shutdowns, if you fly long enough, you are bound to get a couple.

Shit happens. Even a missed approach is a Safety Incident. Do it doesn’t take much.

...airship flexibility, blimps are still a form of flight to be explored.



...sustainability, and to deliver the gas itself; Hydrogen, a form of energy for the future.

high payloads are attractive, competing with ships, 1/10 the cost of an airplane over long distances, passenger travel over very short distances are also possible, downtown to downtown, since no runway is needed.
