    I really don't mind flying, but I can add a few opinions. One, I don't care for the jumbo's with their cramped leg room.
    I don't care for the puddle jumpers either.
    I place my trust in a professional staff in all departments within any particular company.
    The pilot of the last flight was standing at the door when I exited, looked squarely at my Teamster hat and said loudly, "that a great union, we need them" !
    My last trip we didn't fly any 737's.
    I spoke to a pilot, retired, that loved 737's and said they were easy to fly. That was before the 737MAX fiasco.
    Now more news about the 737, one of the most used aircraft in the industry.

    US probes large crack in Boeing 737 jet
    The US aviation regulator says it has launched an investigation after a 12-inch (30.5cm) crack ruptured the skin of a Boeing 737 aircraft operated by Southwest Airlines, causing the plane to gradually lose cabin pressure.
    The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) stepped in on Friday after a plane gradually lost cabin pressure during a flight from Las Vegas to Boise, Idaho.
    Flight records revealed that the pilots began a rapid, six-minute descent from 39,000 feet (990 meters) to 22,000 feet. No injuries were reported from the incident, on Monday, and the cabin pressure was safe at the lower altitude, the agency said.
    The FAA said an inspection discovered the crack in the skin of the plane's crown but that it was too early to say whether the frequency of inspections should be increased.
    Airlines are required to inspect the skin of a plane's crown behind the cockpit every 1,500 flights.

    I have always enjoyed my flights on the 737's. "Comfort class" seating is worth a few extra bucks IMO.

    Boeing has decided to close the Washington state assembly line.

    Boeing shuts down assembly lines in response to pandemic
    Boeing [NYSE: BA] said Monday it is shutting down production for two weeks at its aircraft manufacturing plants in northwest Washington to protect the health of employees and their families as the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread in the U.S.

    Assembly lines will gradually reduce work levels through Wednesday and then close for 14 days, during which time the company will conduct deep cleaning and establish rigorous criteria for return to work.

    2020 was already shaping up as a difficult year for Boeing, which stopped production of the troubled 737 MAX production line in January while waiting for safety regulators to approve its return to service following two deadly crashes in 2018 and 2019. Boeing has designed software fixes for the anti-stall system blamed for contributing to the accidents by pitching the nose sharply downward and is correcting other safety issues found in subsequent audits. Company officials had indicated they expected to get the green light to proceed by early summer.

    I believe this will send shock waves though South Carolina.

    Boeing Moves To Completely Shut Down Airliner Production
    Boeing is closing its 787 factory in South Carolina until further notice after the end of the second shift Wednesday, the company said Monday, bringing a complete halt to assembly of commercial aircraft as it struggles with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
    The move follows the announcement Sunday night that the Chicago-based company is extending indefinitely a two-week shutdown of its factories in the Puget Sound area of Washington State, which account for the bulk of its commercial airplane production, that had been due to end Wednesday.
    Six workers at Boeing’s factory in North Charleston, S.C., have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus strain that has spread worldwide, and 135 workers company-wide, the spokesman said.
