Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 MAX’s stranded like seals
Wow, you don’t often see two organizations destroy their brand globally at the same time – way to go, Boeing and FAA!
The 737 was the best-selling airliner in history, but not a single one has been ordered since the Ethiopian Airlines crash.
My prediction is that Boeing CEO, Dennis Muilenburg, will be fired over this, and then everybody will be asking, “What took so long?”
As the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has reminded Boeing and the FAA, it will end its grounding “only once there is complete reassurance that it is safe” since their safety certifications are now worthless.
“On Wednesday, Canadian Transport Minister Marc Garneau [a former astronaut] suggested that while no final decision had been reached, simulator training could be required for MAX pilots in Canada regardless of the FAA’s approach. “Simulators are the very best way from a training point of view to go over exactly what could happen in a real way and to react properly to it,” said Garneau. “It’s not going to be a question of pulling out an iPad and spending an hour on it.”
Stay tuned for the ongoing DOJ criminal investigation …
