Re: Your advice to Boeing for the upcoming Paris Air Show ?

I would seriously rebrand the MAX's as the B737-8, B737-9 etc. Get away from the MAX name completely. That's the classic British government solution. Trouble at Windscale nuclear power station? Rename it Sellafield. Trouble at Long Kesh prison camp in Northern Ireland? Rename it The Maze. It didn't...

Re: Your advice to Boeing for the upcoming Paris Air Show ?

Most of the general population doesn't even know what the MAX is or would have any idea they're flying one I think you'll find a lot of people know about the MAX now sadly. Even my 80 year old Nanna knows about it. In general you are correct that people haven't a clue what plane they are flying on ...

I would seriously rebrand the MAX's as the B737-8, B737-9 etc. Get away from the MAX name completely. People aren't shying away from flying on current B737-800's so the 737 name is good still but when they see the word 'MAX' in the future, well, there's your problem. MAX is just too easy a name to r...

Re: British Airways tilts against reclining seats

That has literally never been my experience. Nor do people recline for a nap and then bring it back up again. It's always: take-off, full recline (usually in one BAM! without a please or thank you), "prepare for landing", seat up. Sucks to be you then. I've experienced many people not rec...

Re: British Airways tilts against reclining seats

It's just another issue that will never be fully settled.

The seat recline isn't just 'on or off', there's a vast array of degrees which it ...
