Well worth reading.

The United ALPA Chairmen seems to have omitted any experience in the 737 from his extensive Bios and sunglass wearing videos. Hes apparently unable to leave ALPA politics out of a professional discussion that affects the safety of his members and their passengers. United has zero MAX 8 aircraft. Of the three U.S. airlines included in the article, United has the least experience with the aircraft. United received their first MAX9 aircraft four months ago.

MCAS wasnt included in the United Airlines MAX9 Flight Crew manuals.
