More problems for Boeing

Don't forget the possibility of foul play or pilot suicide/murder.

The 737 or any other Boeing/Airbus are all incredibly safe ways to travel. Order of magnitude safer than driving. When flown by a western country they are even safer.

I wonder if there are any scheduled U.S. major airlines using any 737 series for trans-Atlantic flights? Only thing I could find stated Aloha Airlines 'operated' 737s between Hawaii and the U.S. mainland...makes no mention of Europe. Might be more comfortable to be on a larger aircraft in first class.

More setbacks for Boeing....seems like they can't seem to move a couple programs forward. The 777X 5 years behind schedule (airfreight) and the 737 MAX 10.

$Billions in orders backlogged.

"Udvar-Hazy's warning came days after the head of Dublin-based lessor Avolon told a different Dublin event hosted by Airfinance Journal that Boeing had "lost its way" after a barrage of problems and may need new management"

On Tour...
But....how's all these new planes fit in with the new climate change BS?
It was said 2 years ago that "travel in the future will be limited" and people should get used to "holidays at home".
This was around all the lockdowns of course.
While a HUGE amount of private jets were still flying around....:rolleyes5:

Climate change and a whole lot of other issues will likely have great impact on commercial as well as military aviation. Both of the BIG players--Boeing and Airbus are in good part reliant on government spending so it's doubtful either will exit the aircraft business although no doubt commercial aviation is going to go through great changes. Boeing selling off it's commercial aircraft headquarters in Seattle(Renton?) a year or so ago and now announcing Global Headquarters will move to Virginia might signal a move away from commercial aviation with more emphasis on the military side of things.

Who knows...At one time it was said someone like Elon Musk could never break into automotive mass production and now Tesla is delivering a million or more cars a year. Maybe someone with a fresh ideas and working from a clean slate develop aircraft that will service future generations.

Possibly a renewed interest and $$commitment$$ to high speed rail? Should be a great future for those high tech engineer types along with more opportunity for foreign countries in aerospace manufacturing.

I hope Chicago can survive without Boeing.

Even losing Boeing and the Bears moving out of the city to the suburbs the good news is Mayor Lightfoot has picked Bally's to open a casino. Should attract lots of visitors. Lots of good jobs.

Just saw the video of that crash in China, that plane was headed toward the ground almost vertical. That appears to be on purpose.
Reports today infer that the aircraft was intentionally flown into the ground.

Yes - I'm fully aware of how things have changed regarding cattle flight gas miles....Private jets are exempt from all the BS BTW.
Same as billionaire private yachts - which are classed as one of the largest polluters LoL....
There are more air-o-planes than just "Private Jets" sir.
I own qty (2) of them.
