I hate to say this, but the TRUMP adminstration has prohibited the FAA from ordering the immediate grounding of all MAX 8 equipment. The BOEING CEO personally called TRUMP asking him to intercede and not allow the FAA to do it's job. Shame on SWA for hiding behind the corruption and obuscation of the TRUMP cabal. This will end very badly for SWA unless you put on your big boy pants and remove these MAX 8 planes from service until a full, open, and truthful investigation is completed by both the FAA and NHTSB.

Good Afternoon. I am writing to SWA management in response to SWA current decision to continue to operate the Boeing 737 Max 8 fleet. I have always admired your company, including flight OPS and your entire customer service team. It is with great concern that despite the continuing drip-drip of disclosures made by various airline pilots organizations, 5 U.S. based flight captains, and the international flight safety offices regarding the flight safety of the MAX 8. I can only conclude that SWA management puts PROFIT ahead of SAFETY by continuing to keep the MAX 8 equipment in operations. This leads my to the conclusion that SWA is willing to gamble that a SAW MAX 8 won't crash. Or, perhaps, the thinking is that when a SWA MAX 8 does crash, the financial loss incurred as a result of SWA negligence payouts is less that the loss of revenue. I wonder what Herb Kelleher's decision wold have been if he was still alive??? I wonder if SWA management would change their mind if they knew they re going to be charges a criminally negligent for the murder of their customers who will lose their lives? I fly SWA quite often, as do my family members. I have made alternate flight arrangements for all upcoming and future flights for myself and my family. Additionally, I have notified my clients, which includes various U.S. Government agencies, including FAA, DHS, TSA, NHTSB, DoD, that my team will no longer accept travel arrangements made which include SWA as a carrier by these agencies on our behalf. It is my sincere hope that SWA management remove all MAX 8 equipment from service today. Bite the bullet and get out in front of this slow moving disaster for SWA and ground your MAX 8 fleet today. Anything less shows a callous disregard for your CUSTOMERS and will make SWA the posterchild putting CORPORATE GREED ahead of safety.
