Sad. Even though I know the chances of being in a commercial airline crash are extremely low, I usually avoid flying unless it's absolutely necessary.

Either they rushed it to market or its just poor design but its costing lives.

Could also be poor maintence, pilot error, and or poor or flawed design.

Still lots of questions about the Lion Air crash. 737 pretty robust design though.

That new 737 MAX seems to have issues. Another crashed about a month ago, on takeoff.

Seems to be a lot of Boeing blaming even before the flight recorders are transcribed.

I'm just here to hear what the local experts have to say before the real experts make their determination.

Too bad we didn't sell 10 or 20 to Saudi Arabia before we found out they were lemons. 😂

"737 pretty robust design though."

Safest aircraft in the sky.
I was on one the other day they've gotten so big I thought it was a 757.

I can't remember the last time I was on anything other than a 737.

Boeing is gonna take such a huge financial hit from this. They will be reeling. The only reason they will survive will be due to their humungous size and the backing of the US government.

Actually it was a Boeing 757-223 that crashed into the Pentagon on 9-11, a plane that's much larger than a Boeing 737 MAX 8. The 737 MAX 8 has a maximum take-off weight of 181,000 lbs while the 757-223 has a maximum take-off weight of 255,000 lbs.
