When will the first airline cancel pending 737MAX8 orders ?

In-seat camera in aircraft: privacy concern ?

After several cameras, sometimes spying on us, CNN published that Panasonic Avionics (supplier of IFE of many airlines) installs cameras on screens or the back of seats in aircraft. "But they are...
