Re: Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX crashes between Addis Ababa and Nairobi - impact on Boeing 737 MAX

Why? Is a ferry flight less dangerous? The stupid EU pencil-pushers didn't even allow the aircraft that were already enroute to return to their base. :roll: No but the potential for a big amount of casualties is reduced. I agree that they've should have let airborne planes continue to their final d...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX crashes between Addis Ababa and Nairobi

I guess Belgium will follow with the airspace closure for the MAX also when those 2 planes are back at BRU? Probably the reason why they didn't follow France, The Netherlands, etc...

On the other hand, they are going to strike anyway so they'll close parts of it this night regardless :D

Re: Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX crashes between Addis Ababa and Nairobi

According to the latest rumours EASA is thinking about following the British CAA and could be ready to issue a blanket ban for the 737 MAX in Europe. Later today a statement is expected. If EASA is indeed ready to do so I think FAA might have to follow wetter they like it or not, more and more count...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX crashes between Addis Ababa and Nairobi

I think it might be a good idea to have more thorough inspections before granting an type certificate to a new plane, certainly when it's a supplemental one like with the MAX. It's become clear that the MAX is not just a (major) update of the previous versions but that it was altered quite a bit (ne...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX crashes between Addis Ababa and Nairobi

Now UK CAA has grounded the 73M as well. Am I the only one in thinking the aviation authorities know more than we do? I cant be just public pressure? I'm starting to think the same, It's one thing that a small country grounds a particular plane but it's another thing when a major (and upcoming) cou...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX crashes between Addis Ababa and Nairobi

If this continues like that TUI Belgium/Netherlands might be the sole company flying the birds in this region since their sister company in the UK can't fly them either due to the blanket ban of the CAA in the UK.

SN has announced its brand new long haul cabin!
Looks really nice IMHO
Wonder if the pitch stayed the same in regular eco or not, that's not stated anywhere.

And remember STD is push-back time, whilst ATD is take-off time.

Moreover, any delay listed in these tables is meaningless anyway since there is no indication of their cause.
STD = Scheduled Time of Departure
ATD = Actual Time of Departure

Using registrations traditionally (but not excusively) reserved for SN? :roll:
Maybe they'll rebrand as Sabena :mrgreen:
Although I doubt that LH sold the brand.
