Good morningWow, what a wild and crazy week this one has been, with the added dimension, for me personally but hopefully not for you, of (hopefully just) experiencing another kidney stone event.  These seem to be occurring with increasing frequency.The extraordinarily dysfunctional nature of Obamacare was driven home to me.  When it bec...

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 ...

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...

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...

What Airlines Are Doing For Customers Who Don’t Want to Fly the 737 MAX (And Why I’m Not Worried Yet)

Regulators are risk-averse. There's almost nothing for a regulator to gain by not banning something that could be dangerous that turns out not to be. However they're going to face significant blame if something bad comes to pass and they did nothing. So it's not surprising to see country after country ground the Boeing 737 MAX in light of the tragic Ethiopian Airlines incident. The European Union Aviation Safety Agency has now grounded the MAX. However the FAA has not. Outside of Aeromexic...

Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft safety

Following the tragic Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed all people on board — at least 157 — China and Indonesia have ordered for all Boeing 737 Max 8 planes to be grounded in order to perform necessary safety inspections. The same model was involved in the fatal Lion Air crash in late October. Indonesia’s Ministry of Transportation grounded every Max 8 plane operating in the country after the Lion Air crash, but allowed them to fly again one month later.

How to Travel Around Madagascar

Madagascar. It’s more than an incorrect (but fun) DreamWorks movie. Located off the eastern coast of Africa, this island, nearly the size of France and the third largest in the world, has a population over 20 million but sees only about 325,000 tourists a year.1 I spent two weeks there with Intrepid Travel Travel and was surprised by how few tourists there were (I figured — with no data to back it up — that there would be a lot more), as well as by just how difficult the country was to travel a...
