Re-purpose for military use, offer discounts and see what happens.

AWACS, Materiel Transport, VIP Transport etc.

Airbus right about now though -

Should offer a BOGO deal yes and a few years free maintenance, it might still profit Boeing in the long run.

Next thing you see Caribbean Airlines using 737 to go Tobago, wonder if that is even economically feasible yes.

NATIONAL carrier Caribbean Airlines (CAL) is looking to lease new ATR aircraft to add to its current fleet of five. CAL, in response to questions from the Sunday Express, confirmed that the airline will lease ATR aircraft to enhance the operation of the air bridge and other routes.

Article went on to say CAL is looking to extend the leases of its 737s as the Max replacements were supposed to be coming on all now.

an electrician tell me, neville son from chaguanas, he give me a price to wire an engine that was difficult to wire td27 e-throttle. but added, if i carry it somewhere else, and then bring it back for him to fix, the price is double.
cause, to go through the mess figure it out, undo it, then redo it properly, is plenty wuk and hott head.


they rush it out to save cost and get it earning money, but in the rush, it wasnt done properly, and the modification IS a compensation for an inherent flaw.

Will, or how will CAL be able to convince T&T citizens to travel on the 737 MAX?

once it gets re-certified by the FAA it should be fine. Something of that magnitude definitely wont be allowed to easily get back into the air. If its one industry that's extremely stringent when it comes to safety its the aviation industry. what occurred to lead up to the issues was really unique.

until it crashes again. ent it got certified the first time?
But it likely wouldn't because of how much testing and development they've been doing since.
If one does, that's the end of the 737 programme and Boeing will suffer.

Hello Rory,

Once the Max is cleared to fly, CAL will get them in a heartbeat. It appears that they are really depending on this Max as nothing is in place for another type. Airbus has a few years waiting period if that was an option, maybe it will be but depending on the Max.

Anyways, to answer your question, CAL isnt going to tell citizens not to fly the max, business must go on and pockets have to fill. But rest assured, the citizens WILL believe anything CAL sais. Trinis very easy to mamaguy.
