@jonostrower American will be the first airline to fly the 737 Max again. The company’s CFO said its Boeing settlement means “every aircraft we take is going to be a significantly cash positive impact to the airline, so we want to take those aircraft as we go forward.”

@nialldowney Hopefully we can continue to persuade healthcare that aviation has something useful to offer. There are lots of relevant, transferable skills that can transform patient safety and improve outcomes for patients, staff and management alike. A rare win/win/win situation..!!.
