  1. How is this United interior different than the Max 8’s that were already in service with the bluetooth IFE?

  2. That is incorrect. The Max8’s were delivered with the United Next interior. This just happens to be the first Max9 in the confirguration.

  3. And still *0* retrofit 737s with the United Next interior since the program was announced just about a year ago.

  4. In other United MAX news, the NTSB is investigating an incident in which a United Max 9 flight management screens in the cockpit went blank and the plane landed on the wrong runway at PIT amid concerns the pilots didn’t correctly take over from the apparently faulty computers

  5. Why are they mentioning bigger overhead bins? I thought all of their MAXes, even their 30 M9s with the older interior have space bins. Did Boeing launch a “Space Bins 2” or something?

  6. It boggles my mind that someone arrives with a *turkey* to the airport as an emotional support animal and they’re not immediately turned away. If an airline doesn’t have a policy about what type of animal is and isn’t allowed as an emotional support animal, do you really want to fly with them? These policies should be clear. You’re putting staff and customers through needless craziness.

  7. Corrected caption: “If you’re flying economy, don’t fly American Airlines”
