Ethiopian Airlines may never fly Boeing 737 Max again

May 14,2019

In an interview with NBC News, Tewolde Gebremariam, CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, says “if we are [to fly Boeing 737 Max] again, we will be the last one.” He said crews and passengers have lost confidence in the airplane.

In his opinion, the entire flight control system needs to be reviewed, not just the MCAS system.

NBC News reported that Boeing is expected to submit its software fix to the software glitch to the FAA.

  1. This is the news I read this morning

    “The U.S. aviation system needs urgently to restore the world’s confidence after two crashes of Boeing 737 Max jets.

    Instead, the Trump administration’s top aviation official, goaded by some Republican lawmakers, informed the world Wednesday that the problem isn’t that Boeing put a faulty aircraft into the skies, nor that the Federal Aviation Administration’s lax oversight kept it flying. The trouble, they argued, comes from lousy foreign pilots — particularly the ones on Ethiopian Airlines and Indonesia’s Lion Air who died struggling to pull the Max jets from death plunges.”

    What a shame for those who are blaming respected and responsible pilots with a heap of experience
    I agree with Mr Tewolde CEO of Ethiopian. I personally would like not to use Boeing 737 max. We are not labratorie ‘s mouse to test this “killer 737 max” let the shameful CEO of boeing OR others who are blaming the Ethiopian pilots try by themselves for themselves. Ethiopian pilots are well known and respected.
