The seemingly neverending saga that is the 737 Max grounding has taken a new twist, and not for the better. US carrier Southwest has announced the cessation of flight to Newark Liberty International from November 3rd.

Southwest cites fleet constraints due to the ongoing grounding. Further, Southwest has forecast a 1-2% capacity decline as a direct result. The airline had hoped for a capacity growth of up to 5% for the year.

Indeed. This has gone beyond the point of being ridiculous. Is there really something inherently wrong with the MAX, or is it a training/experience issue? Sorry, but I have to ask.

Good question Ron. Beoing hg has been making the 737 series for how long. I just do not see how they could have made such mistakes with the Max. Granted there maybe some software issues. How long does that take. Also makes me wonder if it is a training issue.
