In one California facility, the cost of storage runs to about $2,000 a month for a plane, according to an industry veteran.

That doesn't sound expensive to me.

Not sure how Boeing ever recovers from this.

Ask the expert :P

Good morning Sir


The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

Forget about branding for the MAX.

Evidently, concerns about the MAX/MCAS system were reported internally as early as 2015, as well as after the LionAir crash. Even if we're willing to absolve Boeing, it's a travesty that they didn't take the MCAS problems seriously after the 1st crash. I think executives should be tried criminally for this.

If a US airplane went down they surely would be.

Which makes this all the more of a travesty. Are non-US lives cheaper?

+1 it's not so much as the American lives they value it's more likely they realize that if there wouldn't be criminal charges, were such an incident to happen in America, they would be voted out of a job
May you slide down the banister of happiness & get many splinters of success up your career.
