Wondering if other airlines will follow suit, and make these public announcements. This puts huge downward price pressure on Boeing's stock. I wonder if other airlines will follow suit, and if the market has priced in cancellation/reduction of existing orders.
Boeing will definitely be racing to make sure all of this is done behind closed-doors and handshakes. I'm wondering if this already happened with Gurada, and maybe this is just posturing after they didn't get the discount they wanted

1of x: BEST analysis of what really is happening on the #Boeing737Max issue from my brother in law @davekammeyer, who’s a pilot, software engineer & deep thinker. Bottom line don’t blame software that’s the band aid for many other engineering and economic forces in effect.👇🎖🤔
Some people are calling the 737MAX tragedies a #software failure. Here's my response: It's not a software problem. It was an

* Economic problem that the 737 engines used too much fuel, so they decided to install more efficient engines with bigger fans and make the 737MAX.
This led to an

* Airframe problem. They wanted to use the 737 airframe for economic reasons, but needed more ground clearance with bigger engines.The 737 design can't be practically modified to have taller main landing gear. The solution was to mount them higher & more forward.

Tadi malam baca thread ini di twitter padahal hasil capture dr igstory. Menimbulkan bnyak pertanyaan. Kadang ketika membaca berita kita butuh teman berfikir agar jernih.
Mbaknya keliru, dia bukan menaiki pesawat yg sama yaitu #JT610 tp berbeda. Mari kita bahas .

Menurut mbaknya yg udah dimuat jg di cnn indo kemarin lusa naik pesawat JT33 yg di klaim sama dengan JT610 yg kecelakaan. Usut punya usut sepertinya tail numbernya berbeda.

Kami turut berduka atas musibah yang menimpa penumpang Lion Air #JT610. Tapi kami juga dibuat geram oleh sejumlah media yang lagi-lagi membuat berita yang kacau. Sebelum makin ngawur, kami ingin menyerukan beberapa hal, agar kita tidak lagi menuang minyak dalam kobaran api.
Beberapa media sudah mulai membicarakan soal firasat, membedah akun media sosial korban #JT610, dan hal-hal yang bersifat dramatis untuk memikat perhatian publik. Padahal publik perlu informasi yang lebih penting dari itu.
