I flew southwest 737 max Austin San Jose. San Jose to Kauai Hawaii - same aircraft. Lot better - less engine noise in the cabin.

Douglas engineers were good. DC3, DC7 DC8 attest to that. MD also had good engineers: F15, F18 also attest to that. MD10 had troubles but since corrected became the working horse of the industry and freight.

Here we go again, corporations pushing their JUNK on the populace by means of Fast Eddie methods.

Such a sad and pathetic comment.
While I'm not "condoning" or whatnot Patrick's comment, I will say that Boeing (and the culture within) isn't what it used to be BEFORE the McDonnel-Douglas merger; that merger put the wrong people in charge and seeded the wrong profits-over-everything-else mindset/culture, and it eventually caught up with them (as one would expect). At least that's what a couple of longtime Boeing engineer friends of mine have stated in separate occasions, and seeing what has transpired ever since then, I don't have a reason NOT to believe them. Regardless, I sincerely hope they learned their lesson, but knowing how corporate greed works, I won't hold my breath. (for too long anyway)

Only time will tell.

Patrick, Patrick, Patrick, such sour grapes from an obvious disillusioned Airbus Fan, oh boo hoo, stay home, I certainly do not want to sit next to a doomsday predictor like your ilk. Look out the ocean is coming....

in fact, i am a longtime boeing fan, and have flown some examples . I don't think much of boeing management these past several decades, due to quality and manufacturing control defficiencies. Yet boeing executives and board members have still been paid and have gotten raises. I am not a disillusioned airbus fan by any means.Sit next to me, and i will regale you with pilot stories and other pleasant conversation. Don't jump so quickly to incorrect conclusions. I loved the boeing 720 and the early 737's , and the 727-200 remains a work of art to me.
