When I heard about the Ethiopia Airlines disaster I was expecting it to be some 40 year old hen house. Who is at fault here? Normally itís pilot error and Iím no aviation expert but it doesnít look good for Boeing that this is the second air disaster involving these planes in under 6 months.

Sounds like you need to update your impressions of Ethiopia.

"Ethiopia is Africa's fastest-growing economy




Ethiopiaís rise has been largely driven by an increase in industrial activity, including investments in infrastructure and manufacturing.

A recent research paper suggests Ethiopia can be the new China, because it has been improving its road and rail connections, and has good air connections. In addition, the reportís authors say that Ethiopia has a stable administration that sees manufacturing as a central part of its growth strategy."

Never mind that Ethopian Airlines have an incredibly modern fleet, far more modern than Aer Lingus' for example.

Respectable airline. I flew on their 787 from LA to Dublin.

Europe wide ban now for the 737s,  but declared safe in the USA,  lucky buggers those Americans.

One wonders what the response would have been to an Airbus plane?
An Airbus inside US airspace would be declared a worse than terrorist threat and Trump would be tweeting about Boeing making America great again.

How come GOAL and the like are still asking people in Ireland to send money over to that country if they are doing so well?

From Robert Reich:

You might think that, now that Europe and Asia have grounded the Boeing 737 MAX 8 over safety concerns, the Federal Aviation Administration would want to make sure Americans are safe. Think again.

Trumpís FAA, under Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao (who also happens to be Mitch McConnellís wife), is doing absolutely nothing about anything. From todayís Wall Street Journal:

ďThirty-five congressional mandates sit unanswered, on everything from minimum seat space to secondary barriers protecting cockpits. The top job at the Federal Aviation Administration has been open for 14 months. Enforcement fines against major U.S. airlines have dropped 88 percent in the past two years, even as three-hour tarmac delays have more than doubledÖ Even with airlines begging for rules on emotional-support animals, and both Republicans and Democrats expressing concerns about swollen fees, shrunken seating and punitive airline policies, the DOT has been loath to issue new regulations.Ē

And what about the Boeing 737 MAX 8? The Journal goes on to report: ďSo far, the FAA, siding with Boeing and U.S. airlines, says the plane is safe and a software fix is coming by the end of April.Ē Meanwhile, Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg has personally lobbied Trump not to ground the plane.

So, friends, when youíre up there at 40,000 feet, you can relax because Boeing says the plane is safe. And thatís all that counts in Trumpís Washington.

I'd imagine pilots will refuse to fly them until they are proved safe, regardless if they are grounded or not.
Pilots are intelligent people.

They aren't rich but it's not the Band-Aid days either. Plenty of rich African nations and their diaspora that should be forking out.
I don't see that happening.

If they're safe why would they need a software fix in April? What is it fixing?

I guess you don't. But that would require a few seconds of googling.
