If you have flown or booked a flight since the 2nd Boeing 737 Max 8 went down, have you checked the plane or changed a flight because it was a Boeing 737 Max 8?

      Exactly, and Uber driver's mental stability

      Lol. There's a huge difference. If a car crashes you'll probably be fine, a plane.. probably dead.

      1% have already crashed. There's definitely a flaw, and they need it fixed.

      The probability of actually being in a car crash is so much higher that it more than makes up for the substantially lower mortality rate.

      Cool but I don’t think that was the question. If a plane has probable critical failure rates much higher than the statistical norm then it’s a perfectly sane thing to check before booking, esp. when there are tons of other flights in the same timeframe.

    Don't care. Even the most dangerous plane is still safer than the car you rode from your home to the airport.

      It's true. Cars experience a much higher rate of deadly crashes per trip than airplanes. Look it up if you don't believe us

      I don’t see many people arguing that. I tackled a little over 150k miles in planes last year, and I feel safe flying. Even then when given choices between planes with possibly major issues and those without, guess which I will choose?

    Heard Boeing engineering is doing a hack under pressure of timeline. In order to install a larger engine to save fuel, they have to put engine in one part of plane instead of middle, causing one half of plane is heavier than the other half, causing plane easy to skew when flying. In order to fix the hack, they have a program to force the place to dive lower if needed. The bad thing is, in order to hide the hack, they didn’t mention anything on manual......so when the skewing input is wrong, the airplane will dive to the ground directly no matter what pilot do. So Boeing engineering culture is bullshit. I would blame management and sales more than engineers. Sometimes refactoring system is important even though it takes longer time. Engineering oriented culture is important for Boeing

      Sounds plausible. Where'd you read this?

      MFers! FAA is taking a statistical chance not grounding the planes.

      I hope they use functional languages to build critical software. It would be crazy to use C++.

      WTF, is this a troll smear? I don't believing that Boeing is the super #1 company out there, but this kind of surprises me.

    Those of you citing statistics can't distinguish between population/samples and specific cases, can you? You wouldn't drive a car with recall for brake systems, would you?

      Very true! 😂 it's so funny to read these comments about how it is ok to fly in a flawed plane vs. perfectly fine cars.

    Looks like Canada and US are the only one persevering.

      Guess why? Southwest would go bankrupt, and so will Boeing, if they admit it. They're buying time and taking chances with people's lives.

      ^ this. Your life is being put in danger so that people with a lot more money than you keep getting paid.

      F**k this, I'm not flying for a while
      Mar 13
    • New stuY15
      don’t fly in the plane, why would anyone take a risk based on a word of people with vested material interest in making sure the company stock doesn’t drop is beyond me.
      Mar 13
    • Intel / EngDonaldDD's
      Canada and the US are grounded now

    I switched out as soon as I could. Not risking my life.

    No need to check if you’re booked on Delta - they don’t fly the MAXs and don’t have them on order.

  • Bloomberg iVX372
    Not sure if you guys read about the first Boeing 737 Max crash, but it sounds like a serious case of airline management and maintenance failure. The plane had already nearly crashed on its penultimate flight
    Mar 123
    • Tesla Hdhaga
      Still not risking it. Even with poor maintenance, flights still function good with extremely low crash rates. What are the chances both major crashes happen to be this particular aircraft.
      Mar 12
    • Bloomberg iVX372
      Agreed. I definitely wouldn't fly on one
      Mar 12
    • Google 🧠fry
      Hdhaga, and not to mention, in such a short period between two incidents.

    FAA isnt grounding the Max 8’a because they don’t know the cause?

    Shouldn’t the right reponse be ground them until they find out it’s not a design or manufacturing issue?

  • Intel 018’!
    Tough one. Who do you trust more, Boeing engineers or Ethiopian Airlines training program?
    Mar 126
    • Apple castigator
      It appears Boeing is at fault in some parts. First they did not add MACS flight control system in their manual, causing the first accident 6 months ago. Econ’s they failed to train pilots on that feature.

      Investigation is ongoing and it is hard to judge. But I guess precautions should be taken until Boeing dies fix the software and properly train pilots.

      Ethiopian has been one of the safest airlines, with UN execs and many regular travelers/tourists. Don't dump this on Ethiopian Airlines - regular travelers have stood up for the airline.

      The software hasn't been fucking tested. Did Boeing ensure training happened? Even a new car salesman has to have you sign off on explanation of features.

      Several US airlines have logged difficulty in getting control of the plane in the past year. All that is surfacing now.

      The fact that you think you know either way without complete evidence shows you are a dipshit.
      Mar 13
    • Oracle alwzangry
      Oh yeah, keep up with the news. I got inside scoop. You went to "dipshit" because you had no logical or factual comeback.
      Mar 13
    • Intel 018’!
      You took one side of the coin flip and think you are prescient. Still a dipshit.

      You're ignoring what's transpired over the past 48 hours and still sticking with "third world" assumption. GTFO

  • Bloomberg iVX372
    The fact that the FAA hasn't grounded planes is the Trump Administration's doing. The FAA grounded the 787 (or some previous recent Boeing plane--I forget which) when it had issues.
    Mar 135
    • Oracle alwzangry
      GTFO making this about Trump! Maybe the bugs in your software are also his fault!
      Mar 13
    • Bloomberg iVX372
      That's not what I wrote. It's his administration's fault that **the planes haven't been grounded.**

      Yes, the executive branch of the government should give guidance to its own agencies. Not doing so is reckless and the rest of the world usually follows the American suggestion. Instead, we are going to let lobbyists making our Jets let people die on US soil.

    Finally, a fire is lit under Boeing's a** to get to the root cause of this new incident. Now that they are burning millions per day, let's see how fast this investigation will proceed.

    Worst case, family gets a few mil.

      Yeah how about that?!
      What if the entire family died?

      The worst case is that legally the airplane or Boeing or both do something dodgy and nobody gets any money.

      Hey dumb fucks - I’m talking about life insurance.
      Mar 13

      Life insurance when no family/ beneficiary survived? Only heartless fuckwits think that!
      Mar 13
    • Intel / EngDonaldDD's
      You have a few million in life insurance? That is significantly more than me, but I'm young so I don't have a great reference.
