Jet Funding May Add to Boeing’s $100 Million-a-Month Max Pain

Customers of the company could demand Boeing compensate them for the ongoing financing of their Max aircraft if the jets aren’t deemed airworthy, according to Deutsche Bank. “We believe all airlines affected by grounding will look to Boeing for compensation and assess the cost to start around $100 million per month and rise by $12 million per month thereafter,” said Bloomberg Intelligence Analyst George Ferguson. There are 37 737 Max aircraft included in five outstanding EETC deals, Deutsche B...

Trump's Right. Keep Flying Simple for Pilots

In fact, he made a good point, which 737 Max manufacturer Boeing Co., airlines and pilots would do well to heed. On top of that, the fly-by-wire systems pioneered by the Airbus SE A320 mean that most planes these days self-correct when pilots move the controls too aggressively – one reason why fatal loss-of-control accidents have fallen by three-quarters over the past three decades. One 2014 study of highly experienced Boeing 747 pilots found that 15 out of 16 failed to react properly to misre...
