.....and sure enough Boeing is already up $1.09 after O Learys rant this morning, as I predicted. It is in fact Ryanair who are down.

A long article in the Seattle Times, by Dominic Gates.

https://www.seattletimes.com/busines...ted-over-cost/

Quote:
Boeing rejected 737 MAX safety upgrades before fatal crashes, whistleblower says
a taster of the nub of the article. Boeing chose not to integrate a system they already had on the 787 into the MAX avionics. Some engineers pushed for it and it was pushed back against on grounds of cost and that pilots would need training on it. It also would have stopped the MCAS from activating in the first place.

Quote:
Synthetic airspeed is a new system that provides an additional, indirect calculation of airspeed using different sensors, including the plane’s angle-of-attack sensors. The system enters the airplane’s angle of attack, its weight, the position of its control surfaces and other parameters into a proprietary Boeing algorithm to come up with an independently measured airspeed reading.

The independence of the synthetic reading means that if it matches the direct airspeed readings, it verifies the data as highly reliable. If there’s a discrepancy, the air data is rejected and the plane’s automated systems won’t use it.

Ewbank’s complaint cites a study that found air data reliability, and airspeed awareness in particular, as a “dominant theme” in airplane accidents where the pilots lost control.

The only Boeing airplane using synthetic airspeed today is its latest all-new jet, the 787 Dreamliner.

The MAX 'fixes' move closer...but what exactly??

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...oeing-737-maxd

Big difference between 6 hours of work and 120 hours of work, the former is a s/w fix and 'destorage' routine. The latter is a major modification to some hardware plus the above.

Quote:
The union estimated it would take 200 man hours of work to get Southwest’s 34 grounded Max planes ready to fly again, while the airline put the number at “an average of 120 hours plus per aircraft.” The carrier will first fly new Max planes that Boeing has built during the grounding, before operating the 34 stored by the airline in Arizona, SWAPA said.

Despite the serial whining from Ryanair on how the lack of 737-MAX-200 (or MAX-HC) aircraft is hampering their future plans this has not stopped them from launching some very long routes recently that would be ideal MAX routes given the improved fuel consumption over the NG.

2 months ago they entered Georgia and today it is ......Armenia

https://corporate.ryanair.com/news/r...me-to-armenia/

Ryanair’s Armenia 2020 schedule will deliver:

2 new Winter routes from Yerevan to Milan Bergamo (2 pw) & Rome Ciampino (2 pw) starting in Jan 2020
1 new Summer route from Yerevan to Berlin Schönefeld (2 pw)
1 new Summer route from Gyumri to Memmingen (2 pw)
130,000 customers p.a.
never mind what Ryanair say...but watch what they do.

Yes I know. But Ryanair has fewer timetables in Germany and several suspension routes from the end of March 2020.
And that's why they entered Georgia and Armenia.

https://edition.cnn.com/2019/10/17/p...-st=1571400954

Quote:
A select group of US and international airline pilots are expected to participate in the final round of simulator testing of Boeing's new flight control system software for the 737 MAX as soon as early November, according to two sources familiar with the plans.
When this finishes, assume mid November here.

Quote:
The FAA will observe how pilots interface with the planes' new flight control software, and those observations will dictate the sort of pilot training the FAA will propose, the source said. Pilots unions and other interested parties will have an opportunity to comment on the FAA's proposal.
This makes an (r)EIS during Q4 2019 highly UNLIKELY now but it is possible that some airlines/pilots could finish s/w upgrades to their MAXes together with recommended pilot training before christmas.

Quote:
Once these crucial simulator tests conclude, which could take roughly a week, the FAA's certification flight will occur. The simulator tests and the FAA's certification flight are the last two major steps before the FAA can decide whether the plane is safe to fly passengers again.

Ohhhhh....Bugger.

Stunning 737 MAX text messages reveal Boeing knew of MCAS aggression in 2016 and misled FAA
Quote:
The two lead technical pilots on the Boeing 737 MAX program exchanged bantering texts in 2016 revealing that the plane’s flight control system, which two years later went haywire on the two crash flights in Indonesia and Ethiopia, was behaving aggressively and strangely in their simulator sessions.

In the exchange, one of the pilots states that he unknowingly lied to the FAA about the details of the system, known as Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS).

“It’s running rampant in the sim on me,” 737 Chief Technical Pilot Mark Forkner wrote to Patrik Gustavsson, who would succeed him as chief technical pilot. “I’m levelling off at like 4000 ft, 230 knots and the plane is trimming itself like craxy. I’m like, WHAT?” (Spelling errors in the original.)
Bad as that is, and there is plenty more in the article, the problem is that Boeing handed the messages to Congress in Feb 2019 but they only sent them on to the FAA this month. The FAA is not happy. Reuters originally had the story.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-e...-idUSKBN1WX25G

....and Boeing dropped 7% today.

First Max for Blue Air, and a new livery too.

I have a feeling, that Boeing made a mistake back in the '90s. Instead of 737NG they should create smaller version of 757. When in 2010s they needed MAX, 757 was long gone. Wouldn't that be much better base?

Only with the benefit of hindsight. They thought the 737-700 would be a bigger seller than the 800 proved to be (relatively). The 600 went absolutely nowhere.

Had they realised around 1994, or so, that the 800 would be the true big seller then they might have done something different....again with the benefit of hindsight.

Nor did they know in 1994 that they would own MD within a few years and could then kill off the Mad Dogs themselves.

Hindsight is a great thing though.
