Watch Those Seat Changes on American Airlines!

When American changes from a legacy Boeing 737-800 to a retrofitted 'Oasis' plane with a different configuration, most passengers keep the same seat numbers even though those seats are completely different. You might have purchased a premium or Main Cabin Extra seat and won't be in one of those seats anymore - which largely seems like a fail on American Airlines' part.

‘A dystopian playground’: Hudson Yards, New York City’s new $25 billion urban complex, draws mixed reviews USA TODAY “Hudson Yards has become the cultural center of Manhattan’s New West Side,” the $25 billion urban complex’s website notes − though it seems that depends on what one defines as New York culture.

Whether the MAX Should Have Been Grounded or Not, Boeing Finds Itself in Hot Water

In my post last Thursday, I laid out why I thought the 737 MAX shouldn’t have been grounded with the information we knew at the time. Some readers took that as me standing behind Boeing, but that’s not the case. Even if the airplane is safe to fly, it should be safer than it is. Boeing should absolutely shoulder blame here. Though we don’t know for sure if the same issue that caused the Lion Air crash last year caused the Ethiopian one, let’s look at that particular issue in more detail. ...

Smuggler Turned Boeing 777 Lavatory Into a ‘Pot’ of Gold

12kg of gold was found behind the mirror in the lavatory of a Biman Bangladesh flight from Dubai on arrival in Dhaka on Monday. You might even say that lavatory was a pot of gold. Smuggling gold into Bangladesh is incredibly common. Spot prices are high and it’s a common destination for illicit funds being taken out of the Gulf region and also parts of Asia as we learned when a North Korean diplomat was discovered trying to bring $1.4 million in gold into Dhaka.

Flight Review: El Al Business Class (787-9) From New York to Tel Aviv

I have long been fascinated by El Al. Since they became a Qantas codeshare partner in 2017, I have wanted to experience the Israeli national airline. Long had I heard that El Al’s long-haul staples – the trusty Boeing 777-200ER – were not as fresh and comfortable as rivals flying on similar routes. But when El Al took delivery of their first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner in 2017, I was set determined to experience their long-haul product. It only took me two-years!

When is an Airplane (ie B737 MAX) Too Dangerous to Fly?

Remains of the Ethiopian Airlines B737 MAX 8, in the crater caused by its crash. This question, very similar to “how high is up” has been much in people’s thoughts this week with the Boeing 737 MAX and its two recent crashes.In an interesting duality that reflects how public debate has not flourished in the social media era, there was first a clamor of people demanding all 737 MAX planes be grounded, and then, as each successive national authority duly did so, even more pressure was felt by the ...

In Defense of Not Grounding the 737 MAX… Even Though It’s Now Grounded

When the 737 MAX operating Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 crashed on takeoff from Addis Ababa last Sunday, the pressure immediately began to mount. Since this accident happened during the same phase of flight as the Lion Air accident last year, the dots were instantly connected… even if they shouldn’t necessarily have been. Calls to ground the airplane mounted from all sides except from those who actually fly the thing. Everyone caved quickly except for the US and Canada. Then yesterday, the ...

Consequences of Grounding the Boeing 737 MAX for the American Airlines Operation

As American took the first 14 of their 24 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft out of service following President Trump’s grounding, planes were left sitting in Barbados, Cancun, Boston, Orlando, St. Croix, Tampa, Santo Domingo, Port of Spain, Santo Domingo, Miami and Puerto Plata. The first 36 MAX flight cancellations affected schedules of 5500 passengers. Roughly speaking we’ll be looking at perhaps twice that many flights on an average day.

Boeing to update control software

Five months after the crash of Lion Air Flight 610, and less than a week since the crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 — both involving Boeing 737 Max 8s — Boeing has announced that the plane model will receive updated flight-control software. This is an effort not only to prevent future incidents, but also to reassure the international community that its planes are safe to fly. Several airlines have grounded their 737 Max 8 planes and several countries, including the entire EU and UK, hav...

Boeing asks all 737 Max 8s grounded

Shortly after the US became nearly the last country in the world to ground its Boeing 737 Max 8 planes, Boeing itself issued a statement saying it would tell the FAA to ground its entire fleet. Dennis Muilenburg, president of Boeing, said in the statement, “We are supporting this proactive step out of an abundance of caution. Safety is a core value at Boeing for as long as we have been building airplanes; and it always will be. We are doing everything we can to understand the cause of the acc...

United States won’t ground Boeing

Although many airlines and countries, including the whole of the EU and the UK, have reacted to the Ethiopian Airlines crash by grounding Boeing 737 Max 8s or banning them from their airspaces, the US is keeping the aircraft model in the air. Several senators, from both the Republican and the Democratic parties, however, have called for these planes to cease operations until a thorough investigation determines the plane model is safe. Ted Cruz, chairman of a subcommittee on aviation and space...

President Trump Grounds Boeing 737 MAXs in the US

I've just written that I believe the FAA was reasonable not to ground the Boeing 737 MAX, and that doing so brings along its own safety risks. I wrote that I hoped that new data would be what guides any shift in position. Minutes after writing that, though, President Trump announced a grounding of the aircraft type. It's not obvious that there's been any actual new information which has become available since the FAA resisting doing so. The only meaningful news item has been Canada's decisio...

Airline pilots have been complaining for months about Boeing's deathliner

With the European Union grounding the 737 MAX, North America is one of the last places on Earth you can get a ride on Boeing's deathliner. Despite the brand-new jet's disturbingly similar crashes and hundreds of dead travelers, the FAA and U.S.-based carriers insist it's safe to fly. Several airline pilots disagree. Pilots repeatedly voiced safety concerns about the Boeing 737 Max 8 to federal authorities, with one captain calling the flight manual "inadequate and almost criminally insufficient"...

American Airlines Pilots Back the 737 MAX, as Black Boxes Get Analyzed We’ll Know More

I would love it if it were more possible to follow the facts and not the mob. We don’t yet know where the facts on the Ethiopian Airlines disaster will lead. American Airlines pilots have come out in support of the 737 MAX. Contrary to the Chinese regulator's lack of confidence in their pilots flying aircraft manually, they remain confident in their ability to operate the MAX, the performance of their planes has been exemplary, and their planes have a difference that they highlight from other...
