The 37-10 is on its way, and I'll do almost anything to avoid it. the max will fly for decades just because of economics. A new 3 version Hi-stepping 57 would've saved the day, if they hadn't been short sighted, even the 57-300 has no replacement yet, and United's and Delta's are getting tired fast ...

I have to admit I've been thinking similarly. Forget the MAX, write it down as a bad investment, and skip straight to its replacement -- baseline 160-170 pax single aisle, with the stretch going 200-210, making sure there's sufficient engine power that it can still do the hot/high/short runway medium distance routes

WOW we now have a new Troll OF The week. Gee you were thinking, was that something new or did you get a new pipe full? Dumb statement as dumb as someone from Airbust thinking the dumb thought he had.
