2nd Southwest 737-MAX8 flight doesn't go over so well on its first day in service.

Southwest's 2nd Max8 flight didn't really go over so well. N8707P operating SWA2 (WN2) from Houston to San Antonio ended up being delayed 4 hours and 3 minutes late due to a mechanical issue on the aircraft. After hours of waiting at the gate and an attempted departure N8707P was switched out for maintenance with a regular 737-800 which completed the flight. (www.youtube.com) さらに...

Nine MAX jets departed from six airports flying the following inaugural routes:

Dallas Love – Houston Hobby
Dallas Love – Denver
Houston Hobby – Dallas Love
Houston Hobby – Denver
Baltimore Washington – Los Angeles
Denver – Dallas Love
Phoenix – St. Louis
Chicago Midway – Birmingham (AL)

The only problem reported was with the KDAL-KHOU flight. Statistically a good start for the Southwest 737-MAX8.

As I previously stated 07P had a mechanical fault on its SECOND flight that day. You can see this in the video as well as the tracking data for WN2 that day

Kinda nice that the "old" stuff still works and they had a spare. I don't want to buy, manage or fly the first 50 serial numbers of anything.

First commercial flight for the aircraft, but NOT its first flight by a about 14 hrs.

Boeing is a classic case of management failure, joins the ranks of IBM, Xerox, Polaroid and, Kodak, they made a place for them selves in business text books.

Blaming Boeing management for a flight delay is like blaming an entire education system for an uninformed post. The MAX met and surpassed its program milestones and delivered on-time. Bloomberg reports near 99.7% dispatch reliability and Leehman Bros. reports better than predicted efficiency in its first 5 months of service.

Yet, they still somehow make and sell airplanes, and are coming out with new technologies to stay with the times... Despite whatever inner turmoil they may have going on, it seems to pretty-much stay out of the products.

Look at the rest of his comments. It's clear he's got nothing else to say...but he loves hearing himself do it.
