Problems with the 737MAX ?

Actually that was a very late-model 777ER, so maybe we could be a little selective and fly on the older ones  🙂

 

I have no idea how many hours I've flown on the 777, a lot that's for sure.

 

Can't call it my favorite aircraft, not by a long shot, they never really seem to have sorted out the climate control, but I never felt unsafe. I didn't feel as comfortable as I do o the 747, even the older ones, either, but those are getting difficult to find unless you want to fly as cargo  🙂

I think there's little oxygen in the cargo area to avoid fires so ... yeah

Mostly they fly pressurized, there is not much point in sealing off the crew compartment although apparently a couple have been done by just pressurizing the upper deck  - there's big trade these days in cargo that wants to fly under pressure, fresh food being a prime example.

 

I had a crazy job when I was very young one year, flying daffodils from the Channel Islands to Southampton for Mother's Day, in a Dragon Rapide - no pressure there, and not much altitude either but the flowers arrived fresh and the aircraft was... fragrant.  🙂

 

Beats flying horses around, a friend used to do that, gave it up second time one of them went berserk and tried to kick a hole in the aircraft....

 

Cheers
