My thoughts entirely fight2win, that’s exactly my view on the situation.A number of things worry me about the 737 max8, firstly its a 1960s design, the 737 100/200 and 300series look great because everythings in proportion, length of fuselage, wingspan, tail etc, also because the 737 was a short aircraft in length the height of the fuselage off the ground was ideal and the old torpedo engines suited it so well and it looked great. But now we have the 800 and max8 series, the length of the aircraft now creates problems with its fast landing speed, fuselage too low to the ground and boeing have now stuck these big max8 engines onto it to create more stability issues as we known, so we end up with fast landing speeds and stability issues, I really hope all these software upgrades have resolved these problems but at the same time don't create more issues due to the sheer amount of new tech onboard the aircraft!
yes i think you have taken the words out of my mouth there, because the 737 is better suited to the shorter 100/200/300 series boeing would of been best to just create a whole new aircraft if they wanted a stretched one to match say the A320 which you can clearly see is a better proportioned stable aircraft.My thoughts entirely fight2win, that’s exactly my view on the situation.
One wonders if they didn’t have the pressure from the a320 neo, would it not have been better to go with a completely new design? The 797 has been mentioned previously as a concept, and when you look at the success of the 787, it could have had the same sales success as that, without the damage to Boeing’s reputation that the Max 8 has caused.
but what you will find is that an old 737 is more or less the same length as a dc9 or bac 1-11 but just wider/fatter which clearly suits the airline. not really a fan of the thinner 3-2 seating bac 1-11s, dc9s,mds etc but would far prefer to be on one of those than a 737 max8 due to rear mounted engines!If you see an old 737 next to a DC9 or BAC 1-11 it soons becomes evident how stumpy the 737 looks. I have same impression of the A380, it seems to be begging for a stretch.
Pleased to see also that the Government recognise the value of airports . Something the Labour MPs and various Councillors in Leeds clearly don't.Please to see that Leeds-Bradford Airport is 1of 20 English Airports to benefit from the
Government's £100m covid finance support package, which was announced earlier this week by the Chancellor Rishi Sunak
More than 20 airports will be eligible for up to £8m in funding each to be used for fixed costs and to support ground handling crewswww.business-live.co.uk

Cardiffs terminal isn't exactly ultra modern and let's remember Wizz already have a base at Doncaster and are rumoured for Manchester as well so would an LBA base be overkill a bit? Especially with Jet2 and Ryanair entrenched there.So Wizz Air are to open a base at CWL.
