    Default Max 8 on AA schedule POP.

    We are going to BVI in July and started booking flights. POP to MIA on American and noticed that they have the MAX 8 as the plane. We found this a little odd since certification has not been completed and many pilot and cabin attendends unions would need to also "sign off" on those planes.

    My wife and I would very much NOT want to board a MAX 8 so will get to Santiago for other flights and/or carriers. Found that instead of POP-MIA with layover then MIA-San Juan with layover then to BVI on Silver.... Will take Silver from Santiago to San Juan with layover to meet up with family then onto BVI on Silver.

    Not sure how our future flights will work out but really don't want to get on a Max8. More of a matter of complete loss of confidence and trust with Boeing then anything else.

    I suspect the scheduled equipment is a 737-800, not the Max 8.

    It looks like they are anticipating having the problem resolved by July.

    But if they don’t you will be screwed as far as getting there.

    No, they'll just put the 737-800 on the schedule.

    Default Pilots may be required to re-train.

    https://onemileatatime.com/boeing-73...lot-simulator/


    In this post:

    737 MAX Pilots Will Need Simulator Training
    Why Is Boeing Making This Recommendation?
    What This Means For Airlines
    Bottom Line


    I wonder how many have done this; given that the fixes have not been approved so not made yet. Thus, no training has started. I'm guessing.

    They schedule the flights with the Max but the same way the keep extending the sarting of Max and replacing by 737-800 as is still banned to fly.
