Probably not. I would try to find an
alternative flight.
Definitely not after two incidents in such a short period of time caused by, probably, the same malfunction.
No way
The UK CAA has just now banned it -

As things are atm, NO.
Urmm.. probably not if i could choose, but rarely do you get to choose the aircraft you fly with.

I'm not the best flyer.. so i'd be too nervous

However, if The Federal Aviation Administration says it is airworthy, then i believe them.
"if The Federal Aviation Administration says it is airworthy" being US and Boeing also US I wouldn't take that as 100% unbiased.
Being a American built aircraft I would sooner make my decision on the evidence and advice of the CAA and not the FAA.

Yes, I would .......but i am a gambler by nature.
Prudie sorry.
Well i think 911 was an inside job so i'm all for agreeing that the FAA is covering this up, if that's what people are saying?

Or are we saying they're not qualified as the CAA to decide if an aircraft is airworthy?
Jesus H.
Yes I would
Of course they are as qualified but you never know whether there is inside pressure for other reasons - Boeing shares have already nosedived dramatically..
Prudie, tsk, tsk...Nosedived?
Spath//i think 911 was an inside job so i'm all for agreeing that the FAA is covering this up//

Oh dear, on the first count. Why would the FAA cover it up? Two planes have crashed. It’s been on the news. They can’t cover that up.
sorry sanmac :-(
Not a cover up but obviously plane companies and governments will always hope for a 'pilot error' verdict, kind of exonerates them..
