MAX`d out hot dogs ! !

Boeing have suspended production of the ill concieved 737 that caused two planes to crash.

As a result.... there are a lot of empty fuselage sections parked up, waiting for a "restart" at Boeing.

It's just proved that using computers to try and fix a flawed design ( centre of gravity in the wrong place ) may have been seen as a cheap fix, but it has cost Boeing both a lot of money and a big dent in their reputation. There is no substitute for proper design....

@shutter why another thread on this same subject? I have just posted in one of your other threads before seeing this.

Maybe the mods can merge them into one.

There is little competition in the commercial aircraft industry, it's pretty much Boeing or Airbus, take it or leave it.  The Americans are unlikely to buy Airbus, and Airbus's safety record isn't perfect either.  The safest large aircraft ever has to be the Boeing 747, which only got into production because a senior engineer pretty much ignored the company's bosses until the project was too far advanced to cancel.

American Airlines operate the biggest commercial fleet in the world with over 900 aircraft of which more than 400 are Airbus.

Other US airlines also operate Airbus aircraft.
