I flew on 4 Max before they were mothballed. LOVE them. Bigger, faster, smoother. 
can’t wait for their return. No safety concerns at all.

I want to fly the max again it's been just over 2 months and I miss it. I love how quiet the max is.

I' like to fly one, but I'm primarily doing DAL /MDW and they don't seem to be on that route.

The larger engine size makes the plane less aero stable. Physics has basics unchanged through the ages. Also, the plane has worse crosswind performance then t tails. To be fair,

Southwest has no t tails. Thankfully, the 700s are here until at least 2025.

I finally flew on a MAX this past weekend! I loved it. It had that "shiny new plane" smell, you know, like new cars do 😉 It was spotless!

I honestly can't tell the difference with a Max. There is a big difference in comfort between the -700 and the -800.

 

Now, if my Boeing and Southwest stock would start reflecting all this good news, I'd be much happier.
