This has to be among the stranger things I have seen in some time.

The Mayor has decided he is smarter than Boeing, FAA, Pilots Union, various countries, etc. He is also sending a letter demanding certain information from Boeing as well.

Another example of too much chlorine in the gene pool.

Worst years of my life were the two years I lived in Broward County.

Is he trying to make himself look like a hero that he's taking a "hard line stance" against this? Because he's making himself look like a fool.

Maybe he can get after the norovirus on the cruise ships that come into port there while he's at it.

Yea... he should ban those as well.

What a moron!

It's worth noting that the "Mayor" is largely a ceremonial position in Broward County. It's a position voted on solely by the members of the Broward Commissioners. (The Commissioners are the people that are elected by the voters.)

I'm fairly certain the "Mayor" doesn't have the authority to make that decision on his own. He'd need the backing of other members of the Broward Commissioners. Hopefully, the majority of the Commissioners will recognize the fact that this action would be subject to lawsuits from the airlines (once the aircraft is officially re-certified).

By default and collectively, he may very well be smarter than Boeing and FFA. :rolleyes:

That's stupid idea! There is no banned 737-MAX in FLL. Airlines has it right to bring 737-MAX8/9 into FLL. He has no authority from FAA or Boeing.

Vote him out! Now!

Fixed that for you.

It's well established that state and local governments are generally prohibited from regulating aircraft operations in the US. There are some very limited exceptions, none of which would apply here. So he won't have much luck even if the city does pass anything!

The only people in Florida who can ban the 737 MAX are potential passengers, if they truly ALL collectively refuse to fly it, since an airline cannot afford to fly empty airplanes for long.

But given that poor sales of plane seats would lead to steeply discounted prices for those seats, I can't see this doing anything more than lowering prices on 737 MAX flights, because there's too many people who I'm sure will reconsider "never flying the MAX again" if the price is low enough.

So in the end, the question is not whether anyone will "ban" it, but rather will it suffer so much attrition that it is not possible to command profitable fares for it.

The question is: Does Southwest identify the plane you're flying reliably when you book it, the way other airlines with assigned seats do? It's going to be more crazy if people don't realize they're flying a 737 MAX until they got to the airport. (At other airlines with assigned seats, if the type of plane changes and your seat assignment has to change, you get notified by the airline that plane changed because of that. But at Southwest, where it's open seating, do they notify you if your plane type changes between booking and flying?)
