The first time I heard the 'no nuts' announcement I had a childish reaction of indignation, especially as it turned out that this meant 'no snacks at all'. It seemed like a gratuitous cost-cutting...

I don't believe we know exactly how many times MCAS has activated, worldwide, ever? We only know for certain that MCAS triggered three times.

Doesn't sound to me as if the MAX problem is a coding issue. Coders work to a specification. The specification comes from a design. The design is Boeing's responsibilty. As design parameters changed,...

Thanks for this, Saddath.

I'd like to add that emergency evacuation goes against everything passengers have been 'trained' to do over years of flying as pax. We're taught that it's vital we are...

There's no date on that Boeing statement. Was it issued before or after the Ethiopian crash?

I believe that's a pretty good definition of 'happening on a solution'. They tried other things unsuccessfully and then tried the suggestion of a third party, and it happened to work.

I accept that pilots are trained to react to certain situations in a manner that does not require them to make nuanced decisions. This seems eminently sensible. However, it seems to me that this...
