Boeing faces more problems with grounded 737 Max airplanes | DW News

  • Published on Jun 3, 2019
  • Airplane manufacturer Boeing has admitted that some of its 737 Max planes could have a defective wing part. The company has been under intense pressure since two 737 Max planes crashed within months of each other. As a consequence all 737 planes delivered so far have been grounded since March 11.

    I would advise boeing to start design new 737 from zero to replace the doomed max model.

    See this: "The Economics That Made Boeing Build the 737 Max" --- There's clearly a lot more wrong with this 50-year old design than software. The engines are mounted too far forward and upward, anyone can see this leads to Center of Gravity (CG) issues. But further, this "new design that isn't new" causes a strong pitch-up moment at low speed and high power (e.g. right after take-off). Boeing tried to save time and development costs while chasing Airbus, and 346 lives later the real problem has surfaced. MCAS would never have been necessary if proper aerodynamic design principles had been obeyed. It is a software "patch" on a hardware "bug". Issues about AOA sensors and software "authority" are sideshows. Boeing will likely be found liable in the hundreds of lawsuits to follow. Boeing will try to have the trials moved overseas, but they seem to have not recognized that this is now a global issue. Does any company have the right to jeopardize lives to make or save money?

    Since the accident of boeng 737 max its like the news reporter has nothing to speak about every time Boeing 737 Boeing from my opinion since Boeing has apologised for the mistake happened now it seems like a sabotage mission from news station to make people move and customers move their trust on Boeing why?

    Can’t you all see the Boeing 737 Max MCAS, the Engine sticking out forward and up the wings. Aerodynamic issue. MCAS won’t help keep the flight steady while taking off

    This plane was updated with "outsourced" engineers from India, also designed its frame updates and many other areas. They admitted they did the code WRONG. Some of these engineers were paid 9 bucks an hours working on the software. What brought this plane down was Boeing's 40 "diversity" programs laced with outsourcing to people whom have no idea how to build a plane. This plane was largely outsourced and the first plane updated and by members of these "diversity groups", mainly from India. There are multiple things wrong with this plane. In 2015 these diversity groups got the go ahead from Boeing to take the reigns of this entire plane. So, those angry white males they laid off at Boeing were screaming that these "diversity", underpaid, inexperienced engineers were committing fatal code errors. Don't fly in this plane.

    Boeing knew exactly what was wrong but didn't care. The price of 300-400 lives doesn't amount to much. Redesigning 737 would cost $2-3 Billion. So, even if a few more aircrafts go down, that is still acceptable, as against the cost of retooling & years of recertification by FAA.

    Old news.. we know and this is normal occurrence the only reason this is news worthy is becuase anything having to do with Boeing good or bad is news worthy. Most people don’t know but it doesn’t matter if it’s Boeing or airbus or bombardier or embraer. Manufactures deal with this and give out notices like this all the time. This isn’t even a huge safety issue because even if there was a failure with the parts at issue (slats) the plane would still be flyable and easily recovered.

    I mean.....assuming all the fixes will have passed the FAA review board at the end, who will still want to fly with them?

    • Derek C

      Why wouldn’t you? All your doing is limiting yourself with less flight options, when there is no real reason to do so. The media has blown it all out of proportion as usual so people who don’t understand thinks it’s worse then it is. Yes it’s tragic but as always in the end it’s fixable and the plane will be very safe. Overall Boeing has the best safety records of all planes ever to fly. The 737ng is literally one the the safest planes to fly and that’s says a lot considering there’s more of that particular plane flying then any other type of plane. And the max believe it or not is very similar to an NG and when the max is flying and the mcas system that failed originally is fixed it will be much more robust and completely incapable of doing what it did originally. If you want to listen to actual experts and not morons from the media who grab BS from anywhere and tell you a story that’s exaggerated beyond the truth then listen to blancoliro Channel or mentor aviation. They both are 737 certified and know a lot about everything that’s going on and can explain it in a way that will be easy to understand and put your mind at ease about the plane. So when it’s fixed and flying again you will have no reason not to fly it anymore or at least to go out of your way not to fly it.

    All those companies should have bought the Airbus 320 Neo instead of the 737 Max, now they have all their 737 Max grounded and loose millions of Dollars.
    Worst the two unfortunate companies which had their planes crashed will now pay millions of Dollard in compensation for the loss of life.
    This is what happen when you go cheap. Airbus doesn’t roll the dice with the life of the passengers …

    Don’t act like airbus didn’t lie about their compression stalls, Brie strike test, and the fact that airbus as had a worse amount of faulty parts on one aircraft, than most of Boeing’s. It was pilot error that caused the 737 to go down... let’s grow up and stop scaring the public.

    Never fly on MAX. The problem is not the software that is the focus now, the problem is where the engines are fitted which makes the nose of the plane tilt up and stall the plane. That means the plane is not blanced that why the software makes the nose down

      TheXvid rager commentors are so fickle. Remember the Gillette ad that so many men were enraged about and how they were never going to buy any product from the parent company again to punish them. That was only 6 months ago. All you ragers, who was the parent company of Gillette without looking it up?
