Why grounding 737 MAX jets is a big deal for Boeing
"Britain, Singapore and destroy earlier have become the latest airlines to ground Boeing seven three seven max airplane after two deadly crashes in the past five months in the latest on Marsh, the tense virtually new Boeing seventy seven max airliner crashed near Addis Abba within minutes of taking off killing all one hundred forty nine passengers and eight crew aboard in October last year, a similar crash kills one hundred and eighty nine people in the sea off Indonesia, the crushes raise questions about the safety of the American aircraft makers top-selling planes. Charles read, the economists travel blogger caliber has been following the story. Charles, obviously, the superficial similarities between these two crashes alarming, but we're still waiting for the authorities to review the black boxes and give a ruling how unusual is it for countries to ground planes before that ruling has come when it has happened before two in twenty fifteen with Boeing seven eight seven there Republicans with bury the an lithium ion batteries on that plane and painter grounded for free months. The I think the big difference is Vert those bat trees and didn't cause any fake lack since at which which killed passengers whereas the possible problems which caused these two crashes have killed quite significant numbers of people. And if we look at new playing types in general, you planes, don't tend to crash so not only to have one two crashes of neuro playing is rather worrying. Whether or not at this. They've crashes because by the same problem, what is the company bearing itself saying about this and what about its own domestic regulators in America bearing hasn't said much safer. I mean pulp because it's raw the busy trying to scramble to find out. What's what's gum wrong? It says it's providing technical assistance to the authorities. It's promised to launch a new software update by next month, which should ensure that the same problem which occurred on the lion air crash in Indonesia last year shouldn't reoccur, but that's fee at the PR machine has has shut down in the at. They were going to launch the new aircraft new long-haul aircraft called the seven seven x tomorrow, and that was canceled because and they have Bravo distracted socio problems with the seven three seven max at the moment. But just presumably this is pretty serious. Burnings business. These are amongst the biggest selling planes, aren't they and one of its its biggest single market, China whose grounded them. Well, it's estimated that these planes produce, I e two thirty five percent of Boeing's revenues. So that perspective it's pretty serious, and the market's taking it seriously in the chef price of the company is fooling significantly over the past two days. However, some boosters say that this is an exaggeration be affect this problems may point to the fact the Airbus's share prices only increased by about one percent of the past day. Fez, any two major companies which produce airliners bearing an Airbus if Boeing is home by this vessel EVA's must benefit by the same amount. However, I didn't think that's entirely full Sewri going on here because opponent has flied thousand orders from seven free seven max eight, but if you're an airline, which has offered this aircraft. You don't have anyone else really to go to to buy them. You could go to Airbus Airbus doesn't have any capacity to make any more planes. I've the next six or seven years it's having a few production difficulties delays, which means vote. It's struggling to produce for one's favor. What he have on older. And so in theory at Boeing's actually, relatively safe position on that in this and people can't walk away and try to get the pain some somewhere else. But the two aspects were Boeing could be hit hard is firstly. This grounding is prolonged and if this groundings Pallone can't deliver the planes. It's made to customers and the customers don't pay Boeing the money for the planes. I'm I'm this means Boeing could have been increasing number of jetliners cluttering up its runways knits taxi raises production facilities. I'm this could be a big drop in a revenue initially and also in the longer term. You could have. Problem with pricing in the yes, they can't go to add bus to buy an extra platens in the medium term. But they could offer discounts from Barings hang obese planes and not particularly safe. There's reputational risk associated with them. And they could offer big discounts and this could reduce bearings. Revenues considerably cantata Abbas in the years to come from what you're saying the business worries not too overwhelming for bang the moment, but in public relations terms, this must be pretty serious. A yes, this is this is very serious fall fall that in the end, I think what highlights the seriousness is that people didn't really cab while plane they flew on. And then you'd be -cational aviation. Geek who would care whether they flying on air. I saw begging and if the pulse two days has been a massive change in public perception about this. People are calling up airlines. People tweeting airlines people are talking on. Blogs and internet. Forums about is fight. I'm gonna go on the bearing on Airbus flight and people are very worried about flying about is plane, and it might well be possible that this plane becomes the first plane will have the traveling public do not want to fly on and we'll pay extra money to avoid, and that's very very serious for the airlines which have bought this plane and very serious in the many of these airlines might not want these planes in years to come Charles one of our colleagues, Charlotte Howard, the bureau chief of New York recently had a terrifying. Experience aboard another burning plane. I think this one was seventy seven nine hundred not the seventy seven max. But she's been telling me about it. I was on a plane from Newark airport to Houston on Sunday night to go to an energy conference unlim-. We're about forty minutes from Houston. There was a bright flash of light. What looked to me like flames? And a violent shaking of the plane when we got closer to the ground as we were on the verge of landing several hundred feet in the air or not many thousands of feet in the air as we had been before. There were more consistent sparks or more consistent flashes or flames. So after we had landed the lights went out and the crews said evacuate the plane. I was near the rear of the plan. So I went out of went down the inflatable slide in the back and other passengers exited over the wings of the airplane and through inflatable sides at the front of the aircraft. The next day. The FAA said there was no evidence of fire. But the report did say that the engine failed shortly before landing. No one was hurt, thankfully, and there were just lots of anxious people understandably in the airport after this head occurred who seemed to be reluctant to get on. Airplane again anytime soon. How does that play into Barings PR nightmare? Well, that plane was a seven free seven nine hundred sevices a previous generation of playing. It sounds like the problems were with more with the engine than the plant cell from the engines are made by different companies to be at rest of the aircraft. However, I'm I don't think the average member of the public was discriminates between the two, and it's probably done the damage to Barings reputation Weber on all sets for saying multiple plane

"New Jersey congressman Frank Pallone made news on the Brian Lehrer show this week when he refused to stop taking donations from the fossil fuels industry. Even though he now chairs the energy committee that if you start going down that road that nobody can contribute you on the next Brian Lehrer show, a response to congressman Pallone from the founder of the sunrise movement, which supports a green new deal and has protested outside the congressman's office, the vitamer show at ten AM on WNYC. This is morning edition from NPR news. I'm David green. And I'm Rachel Martin. Good morning. It is day. Twenty one of the partial federal government shutdown, and there is no compromise in sight. President Trump still wants five point seven billion dollars for a border wall. Democrats refused to fund it at all caught in the middle. Hundreds of thousands of federal workers who are not getting a paycheck today because congress and the president can't find a way to reopen the government so far most Republicans in congress are sticking by the president, including our next guest. Congressman Gary Palmer of Alabama. He chairs the policy committee for House Republicans congressman thanks so much for joining us this morning. Nice Ramya on Rachel both sides have to give in any kind of compromise deal. You're a Republican I'm going to ask you about your party. And where you see that give where should the Republicans and the president be willing to compromise to end the shutdown. Well, I I think you might could compromise on the amount of money that it's needed. Although I think the five point. Seven billion dollars is. At least that much is needed. And it's not just I think there's some misunderstanding out there about what we're trying to do. It's not just it's not about a wall. It's about border security part of it includes fencing, however, whatever the form that might be. But almost a billion of it is for humanitarian aid is to provide more bids. It's provide more medical care and relief for those folks who are trying to get across the border that that need our help. And I don't think that message gets out. Very well. And and that's on us. I think that that we're not communicating as well about what all we're trying to with the funding. The president has said that if he can't get congress and Democrats to give him that five point seven billion dollars that he will declare a national emergency to end, what is really a political battle. Do you think that's a good idea? Well, I think what's going on at the border is an emergency. And we've been talking about this Democrats have talked about the humanitarian disaster. I mean, just if this has been ongoing for really ever since I've been in congress when all the children start showing up that was happening during the Obama administration. I do think it is it has devolved into a political battle. And and I realize I'm Republicans sound partisan. But when you sit down in a room to try to. To talk through things and try to resolve a problem. You have to have both sides willing to to engage in that discussion, and that's not happening with the other side of the aisle. And I can tell you Rachel that are people on the outside of the aisle that want to see this resolved because they realized that people are suffering. I mean, it's been Democrats and Republicans have agreed that something needs to be done at the border. I think were the problem lies in the fact that people aren't dealing with the same facts, right? You hear Sarah Sanders. Talk about thousands of people who are connected to terrorism coming across that southern border. And and that's just not true. I mean, data from customs and border protection proves otherwise. It's the number is closer to between six and twelve. Well, it doesn't matter what the number is in the sense. What they've what we know is that there were at least three thousand people whose travel patterns warranted special attention, and those who are all at the southern border. But when you talk about it's only six or twelve that came across the southern border is only nineteen took down the world trade towers. I mean, I don't think we ought to get caught up in ham. Any if only one carried out an attack that killed hundreds or thousands of people that's one too many. And you get you get lost in in those things. I think what we've got to talk about is go back and look what we did in two thousand six with the secure fence act. We we authorize funding for seven hundred little over seven hundred miles. We built about six hundred something miles of that, particularly in Yuma and Tucson border crossings illegal crossings are down ninety five percent and it works. Go ahead. If I may going back to what I'm saying, it's not just about fencing. It's also about humanitarian aid it's about more border patrol agents. It's about more technology being used in particularly for interdicting drugs. But even the department of homeland security says just over four hundred thousand people a legally entered the US in twenty eighteen that is down from one point six million in the year two thousand so you talk about being a. It's up from four the last five years. So again, when you get into numbers, your baseline is two thousand that when you say that the border illegal border crossings are up. They are up from for the last five years. Let me ask you a kind of about a different aspect of this. We recently interviewed Mark Krikorian on the show. He's the executive director of the center for immigration studies, which is a conservative group that wants a stricter immigration caps. And he said, President Trump's focus on the wall because he has focused on this idea of a wall rhetorically that it comes at the expense of other policy changes that he wants to see let's listen to this clip more border barriers like, I said, they're important. But there are other things that are more important things like plugging loopholes in our asylum laws e-verify, and what have you what do you make of that? Well, I haven't registered is. And I don't know the gentleman. So I think the president's focus on the wall is jeopardising larger more conservative efforts to. To to curb immigration. Well, the president has has repeatedly shown a willingness to compromise. And even in the context of whether it's a wall or a fence, or whatever you wanna call it. And again, the funding for this is not just about fencing. We realize we're not going to build a wall our barrier. Along the entire southern border. What we're trying to do is secure the border, and that's a combination of more board projects. Technology and fencing congressman Gary Palmer, Republican of Alabama. We appreciate your time. This morning, sir. Thanks for coming in. Thanks. Rachel. So there is one remaining open seat in the US house of representatives.

You know, I was all in favor of the instant replay for fair and foul fan and appearance. But this, you know, safes and outs and all that other stuff that goes along was the instant replay. I just think it takes away the human element of the game. All right. Explain this to me though. Why was there a strike zone for the American League in one for the nationally. Well, it started way back when if you remember the American League umpires us that balloon protector. Yup. And it made them and they made them sit up fire. And so it gave them the higher strike zone because they really couldn't see the knees and we're the National League umpires, you know, we had the, you know, they started off the protective, the one to the chest, and so they could get for the down lower down and they could see the knee, but they really couldn't see the higher strike zone. So that's where when I was up during the strike zone, kinda maybe just a little bit above the waistline and that's the bottom of the knee. And we're in the American League when they use the balloon, it was chest high and may maybe at the belt, but never down by the knees..

"What about made you forget about me? There's no happy medium here. I've seen it where it borders on scary. How people act when they're around athletes or celebrities? Really scary because this is your only time that you see them. I think it's worse for movie stars because a movie star. You don't see every day. You don't see every week. You don't see every month every six months or maybe once a year. You see them on the big screen and then imagine seeing them in person. Yes, and not only are you seeing them on the big screen, you're seeing them playing a person that's not even remotely them. Now they're playing a character that's completely somebody separate. And then when you see them in real life, you're like, hey, that's not know Jason Bourne. Yeah, just a normal guy. Yeah, for two and maybe you can't relate unless you're in that position as far as the fame and the paparazzi and people all over you, but the average person, if you say the tradeoff that little bit attention, everyone following you around is sixty seventy eighty one hundred million dollars. I think most of us are going to sign up for that losing a lot of our private time in having a Bank account like that. Yeah, I don't know what odeal Beckham junior proposes of how people should react. That's what I would want to know. I don't know. I don't think they went into that, but I do understand that feeling, but he's not alone. People used to go through Bob Dylan's, garbage. When he lived in Woodstock, they would go through his garbage just to get a piece of Bob Dylan. So odeal Becca may think he's got a tough. He doesn't. He may not like it. He may not appreciate that, hey, they want me to do these things. Well, that's what you're famous for. That's what you're known for. That's what they want to see. They wanna see your blonde hair. They will nece- one handed catches and they wanna see a dance. Okay. Okay. It could be a whole lot worse. Yes, but I really appreciate those moments where an athlete, let's their guard down like that and he's in a comfortable environment and can speak freely even with cameras on knowing that it's going to get out there. He's giving you real feelings, real emotions and real thoughts, and I appreciate when people are willing to expose themselves like that. Especially when somebody like myself, I have no idea what his life is like. I have no idea what he goes through on a daily basis. You not only as an athlete and a superstar athlete in a very emotional superstar athlete. But as a person of color, like at you, he's giving you a window just a little bit of a glimpse into what his life is like in the frustrations that he deals with. It's really humanizing. Appreciate that. I love when you get something. That feels honest, and that show feels honest there and LeBron had some things to say about, you know, being a black athlete as opposed to be in a white athlete. And you know really interesting things, but I, I like the show I, I like the feel of it. It's when.
