Any questions?

Nope, you've answered any question anyone could conceive. Look, I don't give two shits about your opinion of unions. And calling a 737 a shit plane just tells me that ignorance is a strong suit for you. Thanks for playing.

But in light of the Lion Air crash, Boeing has issued a safety bulletin/warning (and remedy) to operators that the plane will nose over automatically (even when being flown manually!) if it detects the possibility of a stall. It all goes back to airspeed indications.

Are they going to ground the fleet until this is resolved?? I don't like the idea of flying on one of these. The old 737's were close to fool proof except in a few instances.

The FAA should simply require they resolve this before any more operations. That is protecting the public. The job they are supposed to do.

More than one pitot tube on them, and they are heated. Sounds more like a computer glitch to me.

It sure doesn't look like there are any plans for the fleet. From what some of the pro-avgeek sites are posting, our US pilots practice the response regularly.

I don't remember if it was here or somewhere else I mentioned that I remember seeing the first 737s over 50yrs ago at KC Muni...long before KCI was built. Colorful Braniff planes that were a huge visual departure from TWA's paint schemes. Yeah, 737s have been around a day or three. Our military's been using them for years as cargo, pax, and now ASW.

Last Friday, I flew on a mil charter 737MAX. Never thought twice about it. But it was a tad disconserting when I realized I was just two rows in front of where the woman got sucked halfway out the window. I kept an eye on that engine cowling!

Really? My $$$ was on too many static wicks on the vertical stabilizer. Weight and balance...center of gravity factors, ya know?

As much as I'd like to indulge you on this, it's not the 1st time it's happened.

The laxity of third rate aviation management is part of why, in this case at least and also quite likely MH380, the crash can be easily dismissed.

I only mentioned this on account of having a vivid dream of being with a young child on a plane full of Asians which was being brought down over the ocean. The last thing to be seen was some kind of warship. I read the daily news on waking and there was this airline crash. I realize thats probably the least credible sort of evidence, but it is not at all unwarranted to be wary of modern super-militaries and their disregard for anything beyond internal hierarchies.

Following the deadly 737 MAX 8 crash in Indonesia, Boeing is preparing to alert airlines that errors in its newest aircraft series can make the plane “abruptly dive,” Bloomberg revealed.

The bulletin from Boeing will say that erroneous readings from the jet's flight-monitoring system can cause the planes to “abruptly dive,” the news agency reported on Wednesday, citing a person familiar fight the company’s plans.

...and people ask me why I won't fly on these things anymore.

BTW, Airbus had similar problems not too long ago.  Due to 'corrupted data' (more likely a programming error if you ask me) 3 Airbus airliners behaved extremely erratically, injuring a lot of people, some severely.
