I can't even... Trump hasnt even been kicked out of office yet and already Biden is so soft on the FAA that these 737 stall warnings are coming back. #MAGA

I blame the TV.

Timing is everything...

That said, I bet the Delta pilots knew how to disconnect the trim. Delta pilots always get trim.

I liked the part where operators were pushing Boeing to drop the "MAX" branding for something new (they should, it's • stupid).

Not even the big-three automakers were ever so chintzy as to try to make a refit "computer-controlled carburetor" (look, it can run on flex fuel E85!). This is effectively what the MAX is. Maybe that's an artifact of the regulatory environment, maybe that's capitalism, but the 737 is going to experience depressed appeal for the remainder of its (lol!) decades. It's a flying leisure suit.

It's really more shame (really, fremdschämen) than hatred.

Until they replace the reputation of their MAX boondoggle and it instead becomes known as "the airplane where you can get a fresh-baked cookie" or some •, it's a big winking example of dysfunction in the industry (the aviation industry).

Someday if Boeing can show some tie to new airplanes or the best airplanes and money made by the airlines some reforms may happen. I know this goes against the culture here on JC but Boeing stopped making great airplanes because no one would pay for them, if they did they'd go into bankruptcy and renegotiate the price, and passengers don't care as long as it looks new on the inside. Boeing would have been happy to keep building 757's if anyone would have bought them, for instance. No one did. The MAX is fine, it's not great, it's not amazing, it's fine.
