A high-ranking victim of the 737 MAX debacle!
The 300+ (low-ranking) victims of the two Max crashes are more important!

Belavia (the flag carrier of Belarus) intends to add 11 aircraft to its fleet in 2020, with seven being B737 MAX.

Lessor CALC cancelled eight B737 MAX

Boeing's November 2019 order book shows that Lion Air (Indonesia) was disclosed as the customer for 50 B737 MAX, United Airlines for 48 B737 MAX. Thus, even after the crash, Lion Air is not disgusted. They must have received a serious discount, well above the usual 50% for large orders...!

Muilenberg was fired, OK, but he got some biscuits for his trip to retirement: 60 million dollars according to some US sources. That's 400 times more than what the families of the victims of the two 737 MAX crashes got...

Euh..

What he should get is a proces of first degree murder or/and a big kick on his ass..
Another disgrace of this capitalism world ...
If he gets that much money by making mistakes, making wrong decisions and making the name of Boeing a 2019 laugh... What are we doing here ?

The FAA will inspect and certify all 400 Boeing 737 MAXs coming out of storage before they are delivered.

That could take some time...

With the same caveat as mentioned before: a NOTAM can be pulled (cancelled) in a matter of minutes, so this extensions doesn’t really mean anything in terms of an expectation.

And didn't NOTAMs have a maximum life cycle of 90 days, too?
My reading would rather be "grounding continued, no end in sight yet".

You are perfectly correct.
And I can only hope that my statement did not mislead anyone into thinking that the B7M8-9 will certainly not fly before the end of March.
As you rightfully said a current NOTAM can be cancelled at any time and therefore it is not impossible that the Max will fly tomorrow,
or not.

Ryanair is prepared for further delays to the delivery of its B737 MAX, until October 2020. The carrier will only discuss compensation after the aircraft had been delivered.

Like Ryanair, they are waiting for the MAX to be back in service before negociating.

Boeing said it would reassign as many as 3,000 workers that make the B737 MAX, and Spirit AeroSystems announced plans for voluntary layoffs ahead of a planned production halt of the grounded jetliner.

“This airplane is designed by clowns, who in turn are supervised by monkeys,” one company pilot said in a message to a colleague in 2016, referring to the 737 Max

Other quotes from Boeing employees:

“I just jedi mind tricked this fools. I should be given $1,000 every time I take one of these calls. I save this company a sick amount of $$$$.”

“Would you put your family on a MAX simulator trained aircraft? I wouldn’t.”

“I’ll be shocked if the FAA passes this turd.”

“This is a joke. This airplane is ridiculous.”

“Best part is we are re-starting this whole thing with the 777X with the same supplier and have signed up to an even more aggressive schedule!”

“Jesus, it’s doomed.”

Aeromexico to take early delivery of five B787s as part of the compensation agreement with Boeing for B737 MAX groundings.

Boeing costs would rise an estimated US$5 billion if pilots need to get simulator training before flying the B737 MAX.

Spirit AeroSystems plans to cut about 2,800 jobs as the B737 MAX remains grounded far longer than expected and the financial impact ripples through its supply chain.

https://www.aviation24.be/manufacturers ... n-wichita/

The FAA has fined Boeing $5.4 million for its role in the deficient quality control of the 737 MAX slat tracks. This is on top of the $3.9 million it levied in December for the same problem on the 737 NG.
