  • It is not safe to fly again, there are rusty valves in the engines that need to be replaced because they picked "cheap" production in every way possible and the cheap will keep on giving in this plane. Deregulation will be the death of America by corporate.

    • The same engines are used in the 737's chief competitor, the Airbus A320, as well as a number of military aircraft around the world. That isn't a Boeing issue, it's a CF International/General Electric issue.

  • Nikki Haley from the trump administration is on their board of directors for a reason they are trying to hide their problems.

  • Oh my Wendovers gonna be upset about this. Ah the Jumbo……… hauled everything from Presidents to the space shuttle. You will be missed. May you continue flying in cheesy action movies and Airplane simulator games for years to come✈
