No more chicken parm sandwich as I found out Monday evening. Had the burger as it was the only option available (they were already out of the chicken/bacon wrap by the time they got to me in the 737...

Those are all good points. What would have been "new" to the Lion Air crew was the reason for the repeated aircraft overrides. When you don't know a system exists, you really don't know to even look...

I'm surprised even UA doesn't still fly this route (CLE-LAS). Okay, not all that surprised. LAS is a very large business destination with its perpetually active convention industry. I had a flight...

Regardless of government requirements, no airline is going to let you board a flight to another country (excluding things like intra-Schengen) without verifying you have a legitimate passport.

The 737 MAX8 achieved FAA certification less than two months after Trump's inauguration. More specifically, Elaine Chao took office about six weeks before final certification. Doesn't it seem the...

How are you reasonably going to check them through to EWR? The agent is going to see that you're supposedly flying to FRA but you don't hold a reservation for FRA-EWR. What do you expect them to do?

I think it would be foolish to expect to make that second flight only one hour and 5 minutes later when it's ticketed separately. Heck, it's not even a legal connection on a single ticket.

I'm not a pilot but know one who flies 737s for UA very well. He continues to claim that MCAS was "new" on the MAX series and Boeing did not provide adequate flight crew documentation/training on...

Don't you mean "there are no direct BOS-CDG flights operated by *A carriers"? Both DL and AF fly that route.

All good points. However, I was told Boeing didn't release the training for MCAS deactivation/override until after and, likely, in response to JT610.

The MAX9 represents something like 1% of UA's mainline fleet and far less than that when you lump in UAX. You really think keeping the planes in the air when the FAA said they could was just a big...

I see it differently. If anything, Boeing should want the planes grounded if they thought there might be anything wrong. The last thing they need, and they know it as well as anyone, is for another...
