How to Make the 737 MAX Great Again

How to Make the 737 MAX Great Again
Joe Cortez

The president is once again commenting on Boeing’s troubled 737 MAX aircraft – but not from a safety or an operational standpoint. Taking to Twitter, Donald Trump opined Boeing should “add some additional great features” and rename the project, which elicited plenty of feedback from the internet.

President Donald Trump is once again inserting his opinion on the Boeing 737 MAX issue, but this time he is offering some unsolicited business advice to Boeing. On Twitter, the federal executive issued some ideas on how to make the troubled aircraft great again.

Trump originally grounded all 737 MAX aircraft in the United States after the Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 tragedy, killing all 157 souls on board. Just over one month after the airframes were ordered to stop flying, he used his digital platform to suggest the aircraft get renamed after an overhaul of the program.

While the president suggested “no product has suffered like this,” Boeing is no stranger to major issues affecting their aircraft. In 2013, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner was grounded over battery overloading issues that caused fires in the aircraft cabin. Three years later, the Federal Aviation Administration ordered immediate changes to Dreamliner engines due to concerns of engine failure. And in 2015, the Chicago-based company paid $12 million in fines over fuel tank design flaws on the 747 and 757 airframes.

After the president’s tweet, the internet had several suggestions for the rebrand, with many focusing on his former businesses which “suffered” in the past.

The opinions come on the same day Trump’s daughter Ivanka honored the souls lost on ET302. On a trip to Addis Ababa, the Associated Press reports the senior advisor visited the Holy Trinity Cathedral where she laid a wreath in honor of the flight’s passengers.

    Is this man’s ego so fragile that he has to pronounce HIS solution for everything (737MAX, Notre Dame Cathedral fire) regardless of his lack of knowledge or skill in the area in question?

    I come to this site to get travel/credit card information. I’m not interested in political opinion of any kind. If this article is indicative of the direction of this site, I done with it.

    Your writers should remember that there are two points of view and taking a side automatically alienates the other side. Either side you pick, you lose. Not smart for a site that wants a following.

    Anyone who feels they have nothing positive to learn from this unique President is not as smart as they want others to think they are

    Given Trump’s track record in business, let alone as President, Boeing would be well advised to do exactly the opposite of what he advises in any situation…

    “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.” But that’s never stopped him! I’m sure he was elected because he is sooooo smart.

    @hfb606:

    While some of the comments look political, what in the article takes sides?

    Or does quoting comments by the president himself that are non-sensical constitute taking sides against him?

    hfb606 Then don’t read the non travel/credit card information. I find it astonishing people complain about reading something they don’t agree with, like it’s the obligation of everyone in the universe to only write what they agree with. Oh, I forgot, this is the self-centered world where everything is about ME.

    Trump is an average business type with an an average business brain that was left an enormous amount of cash to play with none of which was spent on improving his brain power. His comments could have come from a biscuit manufacturer suffering hard times with customers choking on the biscuits. IQ level 80 stuff.
