" In one exchange in April 2017, an unnamed employee wrote: "This airplane is designed by clowns who in turn are supervised by monkeys."

The documents also showed Boeing planning to push back against requirements that 737 Max pilots receive training on simulators, which would have led to higher costs for its customers, making its aircraft less attractive.

"I want to stress the importance of holding firm that there will not be any type of simulator training required to transition from NG to Max," Boeing's 737 chief technical pilot at the time, Mark Forkner, said in a March 2017 email."

The Iranian’s tried to link the Ukrainian Airlines 752 in with the Max crisis.

FARS, Iran’s new agency, days after the Iranian admission still has this story up on its home page....

“The US allegations that a Ukrainian Boeing 737-800 aircraft crashed in Tehran after being hit by a missile has been assesses by analysts as an effort to manipulate the stock market; a measure that would both overshadow Trump’s failure in Iraq and save Boeing from bankruptcy.”

well the way things are with boeing at the moment, it wouldn't be surprised if they developed an automated fire suppression system that actually set the wing on fire..

Interesting piece by CNN on Ryanair sticking with the death plane


" Ryanair is Boeing's largest European customer for the 737 Max, according to a Boeing spokesperson, with orders for up to 210 of the jets. The advantage for carriers, particularly low-cost airlines such as Ryanair, is that the plane carries 4% more passengers and consumes up to 20% less fuel than today's most efficient commercial aircraft, according to Boeing.
"We believe this is a great aircraft," said O'Leary, adding that Ryanair pilots have received training in flight simulators and report that it "handles brilliantly."
The airline is discussing the pricing of the 737 Max aircraft with Boeing and also possible reimbursements for losses caused by the delayed deliveries, O'Leary said."

and a great comparison on how corporate geed kills people..


"..There are some disturbing similarities between the Boeing Max 8 scandal and the July 2013 Lac-Mégantic rail disaster. Both reveal a predictable pattern.

In Lac-Mégantic, a runaway train laden with volatile Bakken shale oil from North Dakota crashed in the heart of the small Québec community, killing 47 people, orphaning 26 children, spilling an unprecedented six million litres of oil and incinerating the town centre. It was the worst industrial disaster on Canadian soil in a century.

Both disasters were the deadly consequence of a decades-long trajectory of deregulation in the aerospace and railway industries. Safety precautions were systematically eroded to the point where the likelihood of an accident became a game of Russian roulette: not if, but when."

I guess that it pays to make safe aeroplanes..


" The company, which is multinational but has its biggest base in France, also said it plans to increase the number of A320neo planes it makes to 67 a month by 2023, while it is currently aiming to make 63 a month by 2021, The Wall Street Journal reported.

The A320neo, a single-aisle jet, is the main competitor plane for Boeing's 737 Max, which has been grounded around the world since March after two fatal crashes killed 346 people, costing Boeing and airlines billions"
