  • "Disruption to passengers...." I think that most people, like myself, would rather be inconvenienced today and live tomorrow than be inconveniently killed in an air crash.

    You say that. But then people start fuming at the worker over that counter when they are told they are having some delays or difficulties with an aircraft.

    If these accidents happened to Airbus, Airbus would have been shattered in pieces in media and in US press.

    +Mihael Horvat You're absolutely right!! Just look at what's going on even after Boeing accepted that it's their fault. Smh!! Agreed with your point 100000%💯💯💯✌

    Except that an Airbus A320 _did_ crash under similar circumstances in 2008. If anything, people are going after Boeing BECAUSE it is an American company.

    Will Boeing ceo fly on the Max after this?

    nope he laughs while he drinks brandi in his learjet

    +Ruel Lewis Air Force one isn't a Max 8 or 9.

  • Jonathan Weiss  (Mar 14, 2019))

    Everyone: “If it’s not Boeing, I’m not going!”737 Max 8: I bet I can change that.

    Airbus has yet to air-bust.

    R. I. P to all the people who were on that flight

    Who installs software that can override the pilots actions? Obviously this was a disaster waiting to happen.

    So many aircraft specialists in the comments all of a sudden...

    Some of us are having worked in the industry and on aircraft as well as being academically educated too

  • .  (Mar 14, 2019))

    The planes are doing a pretty good job grounding themselves

  • Michael Schuler  (May 14, 2019))

    That was a good one actually

    Touche!

    From an engineering point of view it seems to me that the bean counters have prevailed over the real engineers at Boeing. They kept on evolving a 1967 aircraft design for over 50 years, presumably to avoid the massive costs of a complete redesign, testing and certification.The MAX 8 has pushed the 737 envelope so far that they had to mount the new, larger engines further out on the wings, otherwise they'd touch ground. However, moving the engines further out created a potential aerodynamic instabil...

    @ohmyafy From an _aeronautical_ engineering perspective, your comment is full of ignorance. Flight augmentation systems to deal with undesirable flight characteristics have been used for DECADES and they are perfectly safe. These crashes were due to poorly-trained crews who didn't handle an emergency situation correctly.

    This comment was amazing

  • AnarchoHumanism  (Mar 15, 2019))

    It's terrifying to think that airplanes need software updates!

  • Jeff O  (Mar 20, 2019))

    are u stupid or just retarded`?

  • AnarchoHumanism  (Mar 19, 2019))

    +Grateful Zugore Everyone keeps telling me about updates to navigation, which makes perfect sense, and does not need saying. In this case it is un update to the plane wanting to dive to the ground, and crash. These things are completely different and not related in any stretch of the imagination, you can't tweek system software that can cause death to hundreds, it need to be perfect on day one! If any update needs to be done, it should be a minor thing on such a sensitive part of a plane, not a complet...
