Yes I completely understand - and to be quite frank, I am not “loyal” to Boeing if you are implying that. My favourite aircraft is VH-VGR, which is a Jetstar A320.
Just stating that it’s nice to see Boeing getting back on its feet after such a horrible crash, especially that of a top of the line airplane. This news is great for Boeing, and I wish them well. It is saddening that they have had to cover up technical information about the planes systems - and I completely think that is inappropriate, especially since, as you stated previously, are dealing with human lives. But that terrible accident has nothing to do with this topic. As I said, it’s great to see another operator of the 737-MAX. Hopefully by that time, the plane would have all of its systems and technical information up to scratch and everything unknown about the planes capabilities known by the whole of the Aviation community.
Just remember a little while ago, the DC-10 had a major floor, with the Cargo door randomly exploding mid flight, and yes, it’s sad that 346 people had to lose their lives in the Turkish Airlines crash - that McDonnell Douglas did not amend to after the close call with the American Airlines Windsor incident, but the DC-10 after those issues, and in my opinion, became one of the most successful aircraft in the world, with the last passenger flight in 2014 and many more in service as Cargo Freighters. That plane has had a great life with tradgedy and pride.
Many have lost hope with Boeing, including those on the forum. But I haven’t, now I am not a Boeing fanboy, I just wish them a great successful future - and hopefully these problems will be overcome so that passengers have the best experience. I hope Caribbean Airlines find a great success with their MAX’s, as other airlines have in the way of profitability and usability. With this plane, we can hopefully see some more longer routes which would indeed make Caribbean stand out from the crowd! ;-)
