  1. Yeah, like if customers are going to trust them again so soon, after all that caos with the 737 MAX customer will keep on asking “that one is not one of those that crash, right?”

  2. Did the FAA let boeing do its security checks alone again ?

  3. Bigger plane, more passengers, higher death toll.

  4. Me: “Is it safe?”

    Boeing: “Of course.”

    Me: “Really? There was a lot of cover up with the 737 Max.”

    Boeing: “That was the old Boeing. We are the new Boeing.”

  5. Boeing…
    It’s the rest the flights we care about, not the first.

    This plane is a piece of junk, just like the Dreamliner and the Max.

    All these planes suffered from the same hot mess that created the Max.

  6. The 777 is a sweet plane. I love flying in it on long haul routes and look forward to one day getting in the 777X version. The wing design is truly a masterpiece of engineering.

  7. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-51253066) reduced by 63%. (I’m a bot)

    > AFP Boeing has successfully completed the first test flight of the world's largest twin-engined jet, the 777X. It comes as the firm attempts to boost its image after its 737 Max plane was grounded last year following two fatal crashes that killed 346 people.

    > Boeing has been in crisis since the 737 Max crashes, which occurred within five months of each other – first in Indonesia in October 2018 and then in Ethiopia last March.

    > The grounding of the 737 Max, which had been Boeing's best-selling plane, is estimated to have already cost Boeing more than $9bn..
