Boeing 737 Max returns to U.S. skies after nearly 2 years
"Well the first commercial flight of a Boeing 7 37 Max aircraft in nearly two years, said to take place today on American Airlines. Max departs Miami for New York's LaGuardia Airport this morning, ABC. Jim Ryan joins us Live right now with more so, Jim, let's talk a little bit about the criteria. What did the FAA use here to deem that the Boeing 7 37 Max is ready to fly again? I must say it is really Sam from Boeing, a redesign of the max eight aircraft retraining of pilot and, of course, the FAA did its own investigation and its own infections of the Max eight aircraft. But it's been less than two years now completely redesigned plane now extremely complex that some are saying that it was with the grounding was not long enough that there should have been further investigations. Some family members of the hundreds of people who died in those two crashes in 2008 and 2920 18 2019 say that they want the plane to remain grounded on grounds that they say there were improprieties in the inspection process into the training of those pilots. So no doubt, not just those families, Jim. But the entire aviation world of the entire world, for that matter is going to be watching this flight. And I would imagine subsequent flights with 7 37 Max very closely over the course of the next few weeks and months, And is there some sort of a time frame? That they're giving this and then do they plan on expanding these flights in the not too distant future? Well, at least in an American airlines, you know they're going to continue using this aircraft United in Southwest are other huge customers of the 7 37 Max. They don't plan to fly their new aircraft until early to mid 2021 next year. Alaska Airlines has just ordered several dozen of the aircraft. So yeah, Ryanair, Also Europe's air air air of Azaz decided it wants to order more swell, so there's no real timetable. That they all have agreed upon. It's the airline's making their own decisions on when they want to ramp it up again. So at this point to your you've got the flight from Miami to LaGuardia. Is that the only one today of the 7 37, Max? Or is that just the first one out of the gate today and that there might be Mork coming up either today or or throughout the week? No plans for today. But throughout the rest of the week, If that seems like that, like 7 18 Miami to LaGuardia will fly using the max eight, so at least we know that those will be in the air. The interestingly I talked with the widow of a man who died in the Ethiopia crash. She says that passengers should be checking as they make reservations to see what kind of aircraft they are flying on something that most people don't even think about. But she says that people should be doing that for their own peace of mind. She's not convinced of the safety of the 7 37 Maxie, and she thinks that past me or should make an important decision about whether they want to fly on it. Today's flight. We don't know whether it's full or not, but these air paying passengers of American Airlines Miami

"In this greatest nation on God's green earth another. Great week week the, begins after a weekend that featured one? Of the strangest most perplexing a most, peculiar stories of of. Of recent years in fact that I can remember and it was a local story which I heard about first locally. And then it's. Become now an international story what happened how you make sense of. It what I'm talking about is the tragic theft of an airplane and it was a turboprop airplane. It was large. Plane relatively large that was stolen From the Seattle airport And it was stolen apparently for a joyride By someone who had worked, for Alaska Airlines which, is the very major and in my, opinion wonderfully last fly Alaska all the time and they're the, leading airline going in and out of Seattle and It's as somebody who worked for that, airline was not authorized to fly a plane and never flown a plane before got up on. The plane and while he was up in the air and there were two f. fifteens tailing him thinking it might be a terrorist attack because, somebody takes off and I'm, playing like that it, wasn't he was doing stunts and barrel, rolls and his conversation with the air traffic controller sounded like this A lot of people that care about me And It's gonna disappoint them That I did this I would like to apologize Broken guys Got a few, screws loose I guess never really knew, until now That he. Died shortly, after those comments when the plane crashed. On Katrin island and again I've lived in the. Seattle, area now it's twenty two years and never heard of Katrin Greg did you know about Katrin island know in any event somebody else's lived in. Seattle mo- most of his life. Is my very good friend daylight he who is a veteran pilot he has flown for now. Retired flown for thirty five years for a very. Major commercial airline and Dale I mentioned on the air before that I think, the first time we spoke on the air was on September eleventh two. Thousand and one where you're, giving us some perspective on what happened and then after September eleventh you. Became one of the first. Pilots to be authorized licensed to carry You're a strong second amendment advocate to carry in. The cockpit and and, now, you like everybody else I guess you're trying to make sense of this Yes so glad to be here Michael yes. It's a very amazing story that is for sure And one of. The. Things. About this young man he's twenty nine years old He's apparently. Very happily married strong family relationships with his wife's parents, and his own parents and Everybody has said, very, kind things about him no criminal record no record of mental illness A? First of all do they do any they. Do regular psychiatric, testing on pilots don't they No, they get medical exams but. There's no formal psychological testing there is background checks criminal background checks and and all, of that and and, what I understand this? Ground service employees had gone through that, as well Yeah. And he had he, had gone through, that and apparently he had. No problems in what is it the three years he had worked for Alaska Airlines Okay, so he gets. Onto this plane now? I, would. Have thought that you need like a car key or something like that before you start up this very very powerful machine. Is that not true no no all you need, to do is get access to the cockpit and let, me give your listeners a little bit of perspective so there are more airplanes than there, are gate and so every evening and every day they have to there's a storage area up at the north end of the airport is a ramp area. And this is where they go to take the airplanes that they don't are not using. The present time and they don't have a case space for them and this this gentleman and. Others. Are tasked with going up there and toy those airplanes back to the gate or from the gates back after that you don't tell them it's not Vulgar. Boatmen you get in a little car right and. Then pull the plane correct but while they're pulling the, plane someone has and someone has to be in the cockpit so that if the airplane. Would get loose from the toe that they could actually apply the brakes and stop the airplane and so this would make this this gentleman or this man. Aware of, how to operate the the breaks how to contact air traffic control ground control to interact with them to work the radios on airplanes so, he would have that, expertise already Yeah? But he he had never, gone. The pilot's license apparently had never, flown a plane at all before we use surprised to see him doing barrel rolls and some of these stunts that he was doing in the air yeah that was absolutely amazing. That he could do that and, the the there are flight simulator programs that are very sophisticated and so, he could have learned for example, the position, of the controls or even what it took to start. Your plane yeah from a simulator program Me and the time that I have I've got three five thousand hours of flight time someone told me say hey go out and start up that dash eight I wouldn't be. Able, to do it somewhat have to show me how to do they have to go through a book to learn how. To do it but I would, not have, the expertise so that was quite the task for him to accomplish and then. Even, to be able to Put the, power up and get the airplane airborne and bring. The gear, up and the flaps up or maybe you left and down for takeoff it's hard to hard, to know but what he did was. Somewhat, amazing in requires a lot of skill but he could've he said to the ATC that he did learn a lot of it simulator, programs and like. I say they're pretty sophisticated and speaking of the air traffic controllers weren't you impressed when you. Listen these guys are being so sensitive and so. Responsible in fact, let's, take, a quick listen to the air traffic controller. Trying to talk twenty nine year old Richard Russell down to a safe landing listen. Is the the runway just off your right side and about a mile, DC that that's the that's the that's. Mcchord field man guys rough me up I think I. Think I might mess something out there To. I wouldn't want to do that hopefully they got anti-aircraft They don't have. Any of that stuff We're just trying to find. A place for you to land safely Yeah that's you bring it out just yet for holy smokes I. Gotta I gotta stop looking at the field because it's going down Dalliance is are things going to change and Seattle airport is seatac Yeah I think I think. This is a big wake up call for the whole airline industry and I think as a, result of this is going to be some big changes right now there's a circle of people who have access to the airplanes and what they're gonna do is we're. Gonna, make that circle smaller and another thing would probably be worthwhile they're they're. Probably already considering this or they will be in the months ahead is that some type of a code that has to be put into the airplane before you, could actually started in that would be relatively easy thing to do but, it would take a. While to, do that for. All the, airplanes but something like that so yes things will change People who knew Richard Russell, who who died when. His plane, crashed on this Largely uninhabited island in the middle of Puget Sound He he grew up. In a very Christian home he. Was a churchgoer he. Was active in young life he was happily married he doesn't fit any. Profile of someone to just. Kill himself, like this he does not does not and. Again, we'll try to make some sense of it listen I appreciate the fact that it's people like daylight who keep our skies safe and. Landa safely and take us from place to place we will be right back with something else and other stories from the weekend that got even more attention than this And, thank Dale maybe we have a bunch of. Callers, who are who are hanging onto can you stay with us for a while longer sure you bet I mean one of the questions. Is how how is this even possible today with the level of training that you have to have as a pilot We'll get back to that I also want? To, cover the.

"We're talking about this. I I saw this headline last night late last night and I didn't really think anything of it. I didn't look into it. I didn't expand it. I, I. Paid no attention to it. And then this morning, Myron, you tell me the actual story. I'm like, oh my goodness. How in the world and not pay attention to this now, let me say it ended with a death, the the man that did this died and that's obviously a tragedy. The story itself is so it says another do a sports bear with us on this, but my goodness, it's just that crazy at Seattle, Tacoma international airport. Last night, a man who works what I guess on the ground crew at the airport who helps bring planes into the gate, so on and so forth. Jumped in a horizon airplane, which is in Alaska Airlines city and took off. Any took off any he clearly Byron in the videos out that you can see it anywhere knew what he was doing. It's this is just it's fascinating, Lee disturbing, isn't it? Yeah, it's it's all bizarre in, you know, you don't want to make light of something that in this way. But if you hear the commentary, he Saint pretty light hearted. I mean, he he, he seemed like a guy who you know, wasn't showing any signs of panic. I guess. I don't want to believe that I could step into the cockpit and do some of those maneuvers. I guess what the things I hope they find out is that he has some kind of flight experience because I don't know how pilots do their job and I fly a lot, but I know they're good, and that makes me comfortable when I'm in the air, this idea of someone maybe being able to walk onto a planet. I think what people think when they hear this Dari is a little small plane in a little four seater. Something like that, right. This is a commercial airline. Listen, Alaska Airlines flight that he took seventy eight seat plane. I think. I mean, that's a big plane. He's maneuvering through the sky. I just I don't feel comfortable about any of this am, I guess, is security at airports around the country going to be a little tougher in the next week. As officials investigate this. Yeah. And you'd been saying that I needed to listen to the conversation. So during that last break, I listened to a few minutes of the conversation. I could not believe this as he's talking to air traffic control than that air traffic control wisely puts a pilot on the line as well. In case he has any questions. This guy is it. Like you said, it's like you're sitting next to a bar. It's just like. He he sounded like any of our buddies would sound. He was one hundred percent comfortable sounded like, dude, you'd want to go have a beer with. I mean, just just there was no threat. He apologized for an wanna screw up. Everybody's day. He said on account of AMIS. Sorry, Scott, screwing up. Everybody's day here on account of me. They asked him if he's flown before he said, I've played video games before, so I I know what I'm doing a little bit like are you learning this on a flight simulator? Because in the end he did not know how to land any said he didn't know how to land it all to me. That's what cost him his life. Can you literally learn to fly a seventy eight seat plane on an XBox and adequately do it he's doing loop de loops. Didn't even know those planes did loop de loops Myron. Yeah, I hope you can't look. I hope you can't go on and buy something, whether it's video game or some sort of flight simulator that allows you to do that. I'll tell you what, I didn't know..

Rights Act needs to include the gender classification. He's include gender orientation needs to be expanded the circuits are, split on this because, at the federal level they are not. Protections, pre-algebra TQ they can be discriminated against now that. Doesn't mean that San Francisco doesn't protect them that doesn't mean the state, of California doesn't putting them, because they knew. But at the federal level they're not protected so when you're on an airplane flying from New York to Los, Angeles on Alaska Airlines, according to David Cooley founder of the abbey very famous Very famous in the, gay community the bar in LA What is it twenty seven years. Old now the abbey Published a post. You, on Sunday Said that in Alaska Airlines flight attendant Asked his partner to move so a straight couple could sit together because they're listed as family So my gay partner is not family anymore Not mine my wife is nine anyway saying that. In the sense of so wait a minute My. Partner doesn't count as family the, way that this stuff is set up at, the federal level so I can discriminate and. Say, guess what. You're gay pal over that, guy the move we ought straight couples sitting together yeah According to Cooley he and his partner were sitting in premium seats are the first class cabin on. L. ask airlines sat in those, once or twice from back when they used, to fly San Jose to Austin the nerd. Bird And I actually loved Alaska Airlines asked, my wife I was like oh well nice really good flight attendants the seats were comfortable the, food was good Always enjoyed. It nice people I. Met on the plane Flight attendant asked his partner to give. Up his seat and move to coach Cooley said that he explained is David Cooley founder of the abbey in LA said. He explained to the flight attendant that his travel companion was his romantic partner they'd like to sit together Partner Cooley wrote, this and I quote he was given a choice to either give up the premium seat and move to coach or get off the plane Was this upgrade because was not an upgrade there's. Absolutely no excuse for the, mistake that. Some people make is if it was. An upgrade the airline actually has, the right to take the seat back if somebody pays for. It they do they actually reserve that's in, their contract so if this. Was an. Upgrade that would be the only opportunity for this to be acceptable any. Other excuse is unacceptable for. One five eight, hundred eighty eight ten he continued we cannot be bear the feeling of humiliation for an entire cross country flight end left the plane Cooley then. Wrote that he and his partner found another, flight to l. a. on. Delta Airlines. By the way I fly that one coastal fairly regularly I like delta. I'm really happy with them San Francisco and LA flights to New York to JFK very comfortable. They've been upgrading the planes are a little bit I. Very happy with. Delta's transcontinental flight really happy And he said this and I quote I cannot. Believe that. An airline in this. Day and, age will, give, a street couple preferential treatment over a, gay couple and, go so far as to, ask us, to leave, he's right I agree with them Alaska Airlines spokeswoman Oriana. Brandon provided a statement to the Huffington Post calling. The episode nothing more than a quote, seating error This unfortunate incident was caused by seating error compounded by a full flight and a crew. Seeking an. On time departure and. Nothing more than that, I actually don't believe that unless again the, only explanation is, coolies partner was an upgrade, from coach They have. Those automatic upgrades partner upgrades us miles for, the upgrade whatever it is and the other couple had paid first class seats that's the only way. This makes any sense doesn't make a, good but at least then it's logical without any discriminatory effect So they claim, full flight and cruising in on time departure nothing more than that it's our possibly keep all family seated together whenever possible that didn't happen. Here we're deeply, sorry for situation we've reached, out to Michigan offer our sincere apologies, whatever we're seeing. A right well what it was supposed to happen. At the moment in time is you pay for first class seat, on another airline to keep them together in first class Why a basic customer service function like that didn't happen Is a failure on the part of Alaska, Airlines if this, was, happening and the partner. Wasn't upgrade you just go look let's, make this right let's do a good thing and say I'm going to get. You on the, next flight back to LA David cruelly with your partner we're going to. See you together in first class on, the next flight that is possible no matter what airline Basic customer. Service saves you this nightmare scenario Alaska Saves. You this nightmare scenario So the spokesperson for Alaska Airlines cited at the airline has, zero tolerance policy for discrimination, kinda version including Bob lob freaking blah Interestingly enough Alaska. Airlines has a page dedicated to gay travel on its website Alaska where longtime Spurs LGBT community remained, committed to more, equitable society How do, you feel about I mean I just I'm I'm actually outraged the. Only explanation and nobody clarified this was David coolies partner in upgrade Two first class Does the can you come up with another scenario where this? Is not discriminatory I cannot. For one five eight. Hundred. Eighty eight ten this discriminatory in, Alaska, didn't. Say hey look it. Was an upgrade these other people had purchase first class seats that. Gives. Them priority. Sorry Ann Coulter remember when she freaked out about that Well Remember her little freak out which made us all chuckle just a little. Bit I've.

Couple together, in, an airplane, oh. I hope I'm wrong on that one but would they have would they have broken up a, not married, straight couple for a married couple who have the same last name a couple's a couple I mean yes not technically yes so I think if you have to move to put kids, with parents or kids with siblings that's acceptable but I don't think you should be in the business of trying to break up to, people who are clearly, in a relationship to put two people who are also in, a. Relationship no matter what the dead there is husband and wife should or husband and husband should not trump boyfriend boyfriend boyfriend girlfriend girlfriend girlfriend if you're the husband and the wife and you're sitting in your seat and you're watching this all happened what did you say hey you know what i know it's a long flight from l._a. to new york but won't be okay we'll share our stories about this five hour flight we get done what do you need to sit next to your partner really for now if you're already seated next your partner you want to remain there that's your assigned seat so you're gonna display someone just so you can sit next to your wife what.
