Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

When it goes tits up the MAX requires flying skills which today’s pilots (JAF probably being a rare exception) don’t have anymore! I agree for 100 percent with this statement of Poiu, today newbies come on a right seat with passengers and it is their first real flight in a 737 (or 320) is this norm...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Oosfu is still on ground because there is a shortage on the market of PW engines....
Is there still a market of PW engines ? or is it a search on a market for used / recuperation parts ?

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

An acft that needs software to compensate the deteroriation of aerodynamics should never fly again ! The old 737 wing design is not appropriate for the new and bigger eco engines, there is a point when retrofitting has to end, it has been going on for half a century for now...

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

All these assumptions of what the pilots could have done to prevent this crash... as i mentionned already weeks ago; guys, they only got a couple of seconds at this agl ! and confirmed now in the news: simulation gave pilots 40 secs

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

" Riad Bahri: According to some, it will become one of the biggest scandals in modern aviation.
Indeed i hope so, flirting with safety under economical pressure: its a no go thing. Airbus has a big expierence in electronic guided flight systems, Boeing has not, and they gave a proof of that !

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

As expected , the solution will be a new update for MCAS, and let us forget this issue ?? Anyway, i'll never trust this bad design of non fitting engines corrected with a patch, and i think many, many people will think the same...

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

hundreds of predictions, so here s an other one: Within a few weeks the MAX up and flying again, as for cause: very bad coincidences, a set of circumstances and no direct proof of technical malfunctions, anyway Boeing took some serious precautionary measures and reviewed the complete MCAS system, ca...

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

Can we simplify all this information to the following or not: In the hard competition for more fuel efficient acft, Boeing equipped it's 737 with a big new eco engine that actually didn't quite fit very well on the existing 737 concept, they encountered some negative consequences and had to work aro...

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

Do you really think that NTSB, which has sent four experts on site, will let itself be influenced by Boeing, General Electric or any manufacturer of airframes and engines? YES also Yes !

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

So in simple words, the new bigger eco engines changed the specs of the 737 in a way that could cause problems , but boeing worked around this by adding MCAS software, and this would be so easy to deal with that not even extra training should be necessary ? right ?

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

LH is extremely happy with very good cargo results in Africa due to the integration of Brussels Airlines Cargo in LH Cargo. So, LH has the benefits but is still refusing in helping SN when they have difficulties with the A330 or even no new airplanes for them. Swiss Air story...... https://www.carg...
