I would suggest you go on RST Alaska or Alaska pilot recruiting FB for updates.

Well, Boeing and Better both start with the letter B. What words start with A? Abysmal comes to mind.

Plus many of my friends and family members work for Boeing so it is kind of a family tradition.

Letter associations are your argument? Really? Nothing else to defend Boeing and assert why it's better?

Enjoy your 737. Ignorance is bliss.

So does Bandaid....Boeing certainly isnít synonymous with innovation in the 737 product line.

Virtually everything is better on the A320 except the the brakes. Not for their stopping ability but the cooling requirements. For those without cooling fans anyway.

Recall system = Joke
Climate control = Garbage
Noise level = itís rare to use any sort of headset above 18,000 on the bus.

155 knot approach on the 900ER = Redonculas

FMA = About as intutitive as a toilet with no seat; for pooping....

Hotmic system = They finally figured that out. 40 years late

Flight deck ergonomics = Apollo capsule


Crunching the numbers above and after flying both aircraft...... the 737 is **it compared to the bus.

I donít mind flying the 73 but itís not a better pilot or passenger airplane.

I agree. But it still sells like hotcakes, so Boeing can keep selling them without dropping a few billion on R&D.

Yup and then just sue the competition when it blows past them in every possible aspect.
