The Surprising Reason Why One Pilot Refuses To Fly The B737 MAX


I didn’t know this, but pilots can refuse to fly certain planes, and with this in mind, one pilot has revealed a surprising reason why he refuses to fly the B737 MAX or in fact any Boeing 737 plane, and the reasons are not related to safety.

His reasons are related to cockpit space and the lack of a modern overhead panel which impacts the ability of the crew to activate and monitor individual switches.

Of course, this is not why I will be avoiding these planes and choosing to fly British Airways and Delta (with no B737 Max jets in sight) but this article reveals an interesting take on Boeings cockpit design features on the 737 nonetheless.
