They should dump Boeing and get some Airbuses :/
I have followed the fall out and the very serious financial hits that Airlines that , lets say , own but can't operate ,have been taking . In the largest and most established of Carriers , they may be able to Absorb the costs . The others operating as what are refered to as Budget Carriers are clearly up against the wall . It is a sad fact ,that i am expecting some Carriers to Fold due to lost revenue . As for getting passengers back on the Max , may be a lost cause . But i can't know what a fickle traveler will do . They simply may not be able to identify a Max from any other 737 . But those that can ? . When the day comes when the Max is deemed airworthy arrives , it's reputation amongst travellers may be so tainted , that Airlines may simply start to un-load them from their fleets instead of trying to re-brand them somehow . While my comments are placed on the Ryanair page , my observations are for all Carriers , and with much sympathy for Carriers facing a financial nightmare over the Max . In my 64 years , and coming from an Airline family , i have never witnessed anything like this . Penny for your thoughts ?.........DGR
Sorry but it should be considered to be a new aircraft and be certified as such
From an engineering viewpoint this aircraft has been grounded and may never fly because of the twitchy MCAS that has never worked well since inception. This is a dangerous non-airworthy substandard product from Boeing and the blind mice on their board of directors. This company is in serious trouble because the CEO is in
in a state of denial.

"Never worked well"? Are you insane? There were TWO crashes out of who knows how many thousands of flights? In what universe is that "never worked well"? There is no question whatsoever that the system itself is flawed and that the way it was developed, tested, and approved was even more flawed, but for you to claim that it "never worked well" is the most ridiculous thing anyone has ever posted on here. For pete's sake, man, take some basic responsibility for what you post here.
I agree but that will mean at least a couple of years before they resume flying for airlines.
Its going to be one of the most watched relaunches ever. They have to get it right. There is no hoping on a wing and a prayer on this one. Its a much more complex problem than the 787 battery scenario ever was.
