After two crashes: Protect Americans, their Boeing?

The Boeing 737 Max 8 remains in many places on the ground. This, after within five months of the crash, two aircraft of the type, and a total of 346 people were killed. What led to the crash is still unclear.

However, the manufacturer Boeing, are coming under increasing pressure to provide answers to the most pressing questions. Whether, for example, a faulty Software is to blame for the crash. No matter what was the cause: The two tragic accidents develop for the Boeing fiasco.

The American aviation Agency (FAA) hesitate in my decision to grounden, the 737 Max. Now, after the European aviation authority Easa a flight ban for the 737 Max imposed, the FAA almost alone with your decision. Add to this the claims of US politicians, to pull the plane out of the traffic .

Only The FAA has the aircraft as safe and approved. Now admit that you was wrong, would be a major blow for the authority.


An industry political move to protect Boeing's decision, meanwhile, is unrealistic. The temporary Grounding of 787 by the FAA around six years ago that the US authority bypasses squeamish with the domestic aircraft manufacturer. In addition, the FAA is considered strictly in terms of approvals.

the late Donald Trump has responded to the recent crash of the aircraft. He showed up on Twitter reserved. Trump wrote only that aircraft would be more complex, and pilots should have the possibility to intervene.

The manufacturer of Boeing, the President mentioned not explicitly. According to his Tweets, a phone call between Trump and Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg took place, according to the US media. As the "New York Times" reported, Muilenburg promoted in the Trump matter, the approval for the aircraft to be lifted.

Yet no clear Signal of Trump

If the President, however, has a major influence on the FAA, is questionable. But if Trump decides to strengthen Boeing public the back, that would be at least a sign to the authority.

is that Boeing, as the largest exporting companies is very important for the American economy. Correspondingly large is the impact of a decision against the plane.

The Boeing 737 Max, should ensure Boeing's dominance in the aviation for the next few years. The business of civil aircraft parts of Boeing and European rival Airbus . Behind manufacturers like Brazil's Embraer to customers.

The competition from China

Still far behind the Chinese Comac. However, the conditions are promising: the company, the state, and with it the appropriate financial resources, to shit once the big manufacturers down.

China was also the country that has drawn the Boeing 737 Max very quickly out of the traffic. This was also an industrial policy decision? "I don't think so," said Thomas Jaeger from the data and news website CH-Aviation. "The aircraft of Comac are still far away from Western planes in terms of quality." Such a decision would, therefore, too early to help Comac. "The decision of the authority has made Chinese Airlines are state-owned," says Jaeger.

The Comac C919 is a direct competitor to the Airbus 320neo family and the Boeing 737 Max. So far, the Chinese have received over 800 orders for the Jet, most of them from the domestic market. The C919 is used on Short and medium routes, and is intended to be used from 2021 on scheduled flights.

fear Airbus and Boeing, the competition from China? "Only when the major Chinese Airlines can use the C919 over a longer period of time, is that possible," says Thomas Jaeger. Until then, international Airlines hats to be put on the Chinese aircraft.
