Boeing Crashes Alarm Travelers, Groundings Snowball

The second deadly crash of a prized new airplane in five months has renewed safety concerns about the 737 Max that could shape Boeing’s fortunes for many years.

The 737 Max is the newest version of the 737, the best-selling airliner ever. Since debuting in 2017, Boeing has delivered more than 350 of them in several versions that vary by size.

Dozens of airlines around the world have embraced the plane for its fuel efficiency and utility for short and medium-haul flights.

Boeing has taken more than 5,000 orders for the various Max versions, and they constitute the largest share of the company’s backlog of nearly 5,900 planes. They carry list prices from $100 million to $135 million, although airlines routinely get deep discounts.

The plane suffered its first fatal accident in October, when a 737 Max 8 operated by Lion Air plunged into the Java Sea, killing 189 people. Boeing bounced back, however, with little apparent effect on new orders.

A dark cloud hangs over us here at the Renton plant where the MAX rolls out.  All indications is it’s another automatic elevator trim failure, a software problem. News has been parked outside our gate

Not good for Boeing.  There could be some mega-lawsuits.  I hope you aren't posting from work.
I will NOT comply.
