Same #ethiopianairlines plane that crashed today: "questions about whether Boeing played down or overlooked...the potential dangers of keeping pilots uninformed about changes to a critical element of the plane’s software."

"Here we have a brand-new aircraft that's gone down twice in a year. That rings alarm bells in the aviation industry, because that just doesn't happen." ~ Mary Schiavo, former Inspector General of US Transportation Department #EthiopianAirlines
"More than 300 Boeing 737-MAX planes are in operation and more than 5,000 have been ordered worldwide since 2017." #ET302 #EthiopianAirlines

Boeing's 4th quarter results for 2018:
"Record revenue of $28.3 billion and record operating profit of $4.2 billion driven by higher volume."
American Airlines pilot: “We had NO idea that this MCAS even existed. It wasn't mentioned in our manuals... I’ve been flying the MAX-8 a couple times per month for almost a year now...what the hell else don’t I know about this thing?”
In summary:
Boeing knew.
Boeing didn't ground or recall the 737 Max 8.
Boeing reported record operating profit for 2018.
The blood of 157 people killed on #ET302 yesterday, the blood of 189 people killed on #JT610 four months ago, is on Boeing's hands.
Airlines that have grounded the 737 Max 8:
Shenzhen Airlines
China Eastern Airlines
Air China
Okay Airways
Kunming Airlines
Ethiopian Airlines
Cayman Airways
Garuda Indonesia
Lion Air

Happy for everyone flying in South Africa. But this shouldn't be an airline-by-airline decision. Why hasn't @BoeingAirplanes grounded/recalled all 737 Max 8 jets worldwide?

"Singapore is believed to be the first country to ban all variants of the Max family of aircraft."
