If it's Boeing, I'm not going.

On Susan Collins' flights, no doubt.

I read that as Boeing 737 IMAX

When your plane's release sounds awfully similar to a Windows release (yet have zero third-party device drivers to worry about), maybe reconsider your overall approach to QA.

Give it long enough and they'll ground themselves, no intervention needed.

Whatever it is, it looks like a depressing manga.

Battle Angel.

One cute rich white girl died in the crash so we will dedicate an entire article to that tragedy.
Also 350 other people died but they were not cute, rich, or white so we won't bother with that

Adding bigger and more powerful engines to a frame that wasn't designed for them is fine in fiction, but we live in the real world. I'm not an engineer, but I think there's going to be more mishaps

No, more powerful is fine.  What isn't fine is pushing them forward so the center of gravity isn't where the wings are is the problem.

I have a policy of not flying in a new aircraft until it has gone a full year without an incident significant enough to be noted in the press. I was lucky that I did not have to fly JL7/JL8 until they had worked out the battery kinks with the B789. Though, reports of random debris in airframe cavities on that aircraft is concerning.

Plus, it has been a while since one has rained random debris on takeoff.

Boeing doesn't make the engines.

I can't pick the engines when I book a ticket. The aircraft is the aircraft. I'm not calling out manufacturers. I wouldn't get on the first A320s, either, until they stopped dropping out of the sky. I only got on when I wasn't careful about selecting flights not long after the LH2904 incident.

When I was little, we lived right outside O'Hare around the time AA Flight 191 happened. My dad travelled a lot for work, and I remember worrying as the schoolyard buzz was that DC-10's were falling out of the sky

What this article DOESN'T mention is that ALL commercial aircraft have in-air issues.  ALL of them.  This is normal, and there are redundant systems to allow the pilots to get the planes back on the ground safely.

Fark, I hate fear mongering media looking to sell advertising with bullshiat articles.

The CoG wasn't the problem. It was the Centre of Lift. If the nose was raised a bit too much the huge engine cowlings, which were far forward of the wings, would catch the air and pull the nose further up.

In this case it was a redundant system that the pilots were never told about that took control from the pilots and fought against them.
