are papering over the problem by rebranding the aircraft as the 737-8200 as 's new order shows.

Solving engineering and management fiascos by changing product names solves little.

@dredmorbius I do think the technical problems will get fixed. There's too much on the line not to.

If we can (for the sake of argument) take that as a given for a moment...

What's left then is public perception, and a gigantic marketing nightmare. Sticking with the old name was never gonna fly, from that point of view.

(pun intended) 😉

The MAX name is dead as dead can be.

@HerraBRE So, it's MAXimally dead?

Dead MAX?

MAX death?


@dredmorbius Well, MAXually...

Yes. You got it. I'm not even going to try and MAXplane this any further. 🥁
