    I have a friend who is a 737 Captain, also having flown most large long haul Aircraft.
    Currently, none of his colleagues would be prepared to fly a Max of any sort.
    His Airline Are set to receive these, but this will be useless if Pilots refuse.

    There are shortage of Pilots in Europe, so do not think they could not move to another Airline!

    As a Customer, neither would i fly one at the moment, and probably not for some time after they were re-introduced, If they ever are!

    Even more bad news today is that another airline has cancelled its proposed Max order.

    If this has been discussed then I apologise but just read the last post saying that the Saudi airline had cancelled their order for the Max and low and behold the only airline (group) who have ordered are IAG now that’s either brilliant bit of business or one more in the eye for WW! Apparently they are not to be delivered until 2023 at a vastly reduced rate….
