Boeing 737 Max cleared to fly again by FAABack to Forum
I’m already booked on AA’s flight from LGA-MIA on the 7M8, in Dec. Trip report to follow.
I would think the odds of catching COVID-19 are higher than the 737MAX crashing. I confess I flew one early this year (Jan) from MCO to MIA and I am still around to tell the tale.
you flew one in January? I think not its been grounded for 2 years nearly lol 737_8 maybe but not the MAX22 Nov 2020
Maybe after all the effort getting Boeing’s 737 Max (read 8) back flying it is almost certainly safe…. BUT … given Boeing’s appalling mismanagement during the 737 Max development we should be very careful about using any new Boeing planes as they are unfortunately under the same management, one that is clearly not so concerned with safety as with profit…

Now Boeing is hiring pilots for B737 Max to ‘help’ airlines. These pilot may be additional pilot in cockpit plus they will give additional training per news reports.
On one hand it is a good idea, but it also indicates that the new aircraft is not completely safe by design, it is made safe by training and procedures.

philsquares – What were the “other issues” that led to the two crashes of the 787-8 Max? When I fly I check what aircraft are scheduled before booking. I would not fly on the 787-8Max under any circumstances.20 Dec 2020
