I am an aviation fanatic without a doubt. And I fly on average 24 round trip flights a year with a majority of those being on southwest airlines. I have flown on the 737Max jets on a few occasions. I have had flights without a single bump and I have had flights with non stop rocking and bouncing around. For many years Boeing had a seemingly insurmountable over Airbus. Boeing took its foot of the gas and look at where we are today. The 787 had several delays and still encounters problems. The 737 Max jets have experienced to fatal crashes. In the meantime, Airbus A350 is a far superior aircraft with what appears to be no issues and at a lower price than its 787 competition. So Boeing rushed a product out, because they feared falling behind in another segment of the market as Airbus rolled out a new better workhorse A320NEO. Honestly, the 737Max planes with new software could end up making it the safest plane in the sky both on paper and in reality. As comfortable as a frequent flyer that I am, I am opting to fly on other aircraft other than Boeing products. I encourage you as one of Boeings largest and longest running clients end the 737 Max line in favor of a new aircraft that is done properly and with pure and unwavering support from a stern FAA. This obviously would not sit well with your investors or with Boeings investors. Put the safety of passengers before the wealth of your shareholders. Feel free to reach out would, I would welcome a deeper discussion. Note my decline in usage of southwest airframes is a vote against the use of the 737Max.
