Your Turn

When the 737 Super Max airline returns from grounding, will you fly in it?

I can't tell one plane from another, nor do I regularly check what kind of plane I'll be on, so yeah. I most likely will.

sandybrook said...

No because I have zero plans to fly, but if I did that is what the majority of planes that enter and leave my airport are. So I would probably have no other choice if they return.

herbert arnold said...

will the plane have an experienced pilot that knows how to fly it or a guy wearing flip flops?

Super Comic Fun Time! said...

Probably. I don't think too much about what plane I'm on those few occasions when I have to fly.

Duh said...

My god. You want to talk about a WCF

The goddamn engines are so big they had to be mounted in front of the wing. The engines generate their own lift before air flows over the wings.

So no, I’m not flying a death trap.

Lisa said...

Depends. If my husband is willing to fly one, then I will probably be willing to ride in the back. If he feels it’s not safe, he will refuse the airplane.
As things stand right now, he would refuse the airplane.

I work for an airline but we don't have this model in our fleet. If I had to fly another carrier, I'd be nervous

Ann said...

No. I always check what type of plane I'll be flying when I book the flight and when I print out my tickets. My dad flew private planes as a hobby and always warned us to watch what planeflights we booked.

I always accept the inevitability of death every time I fly. It's one of those situations where if something goes wrong there is absolutely nothing you can do.
But if you survive a crash don't forget to ignore your carry-on stuff and run like hell for the exit, the flames could be coming.

Aquagirl said...

@Brayson, I feel the exact opposite. I’ve never been concerned about flying and have flown a lot in my life. So I’m not gonna jinx it now and get on one of these planes.

Brayson87 said...

@Aqua, When your number's up, your number's up, plane, train, automobile, etc doesn't matter. Never known anyone who died on a train though, probably just a matter of time.

Exactly how I feel! I’m a flight attendant, and my airline just bought a bunch on discount! Lol... it sounds ridiculous, but at the end of the day I trust our guys flying, and they would have no problem grounding the airplane if it wasn’t safe! It’s their decision!

Beauty reggae said...

Lol! Me too, how strange!

AbbyRock said...

Dislike flying but abhor driving long distances, so yes, I will take my chances on the 737. If it's my time, doesn't matter where I am anyway.

OKay said...

I don't recall ever being given a choice of planes. You get to pick where and when you want to go, but that's it.

Moooeymoo said...

Yes. I flew in one the day before they were grounded. If it’s your time to die, it’s your time to die. No cheating it.
Hi ya’ll longtime lurker here!

Hell no

GentleBreeze said...

Until a verified fix of the nose glitch I've been reading about, no way.
Beauty Reggae, comforting to know you trust your pilots - but what about the others? Probably before the faults were discovered.

fairylights said...

Not knowingly, but the exact model of airplane isn't always listed when I book my flight. If it is, I don't know where to look.

pammag said...

i fly july 21st on a max 800

Blocks said...

Yes, I have more chance of dying in a car crash than flying....

Rosie riveter said...

I fly private only.
Helicopter, air taxi, but mostly business jet .

Ava said...

Nope

rabbit said...

I fly Delta. Aisle seat only. Don't want to be sucked out a window (which airline was that?)

Sd Auntie said...

Nope

hiya Moooey!

As an airline employee I would fly the 737 MAX. The pilots would not accept the aircraft if they thought it was unsafe.
Now when it comes to the 787 Dreamliner I would definitely have reservations after reading this:
