I think it will be even more interesting to see how the insurance industry reacts:

Will airframe insurers be happy to insure an airframe cleared to fly by the FAA but not by EASA, CAAC, etc.?...

9% pickle fork cracking in the fleet of an airline with a reputation for good maintenance and well-trained pilots, and a fleet that by and large flies in very benign weather conditions. This should...

QANTAS - pickle fork cracks at 27,000 cycles

"Boeing had previous thought the cracks were only occurring on aircraft with over 35,000 landings, the issue has now been identified on two Qantas aircraft with as few as 27,000 landings and Qantas...

"Transit" at LAX

I thought that was against the USA rules?
As I understand it, the Americans don't recognise "transit" as a non-entering situation. Even if you're coming to and going from the same gate, you have to...

AWACS replacement

The only user of a B767-based AEW&C aircraft is Japan.

The main 'top-end' replacements for AWACS-type airframes appear to be:

Boeing E-7A (B737) Ordered and/or in use by Australia, Turkey,...

Not such a light sentence

This passenger does appear to be a real nasty piece of work, but the 30 days sentence isn't actually so light

He's a German citizen, locked up in a Canadian jail: not so much fun. I'm sure they...

You would have thought they might have fixed that one, so that no matter how big a hammer you used, you can't put an ATR42 gauge in a 72. Was there an AD on that?

General Innumeracy

I'm afraid this is just another case of innumeracy.
The reporter read "160kts" and maybe knew what that was and decided to convert it to 'reader familiar' units, or more likely didn't know what...

Just the FAA

This is true, but only one of the issues. In an FAA-only scenario:

Insurers are bound to be very reluctant to cover the aircraft & its contents
US airlines (including SWA) couldn't fly a MAX to...

In the video at about 0:41, there is a glimpse of what appears to be a "control tower" type of building.

MAX is not a 21st Century aircraft

You mistake the B737 MAX for a 21st Century aircraft.
The MAX is a aircraft grandfathered to 1960s standards, which Boeing intend to continue to manufacture until the mid- to late-2020s, and expect...

Not the 777-8

B77-8 "postponed"
