Just an observation why Boeing is designing a plane that ticks off passengers and crews alike.

Many of the airlines are flying 737-800's and soon to be MAX's like they are widebody long haul jets WHICH they are NOT. Totally insufficient room from a prospective passenger standpoin.

Additionally, Boeing is succeeding in ticking off the high value premium paying passengers in the front 1/2 of the cabin when it comes to the higher yield paying F/C and Y/C, and increasingly premium Y/C cabins.

Does BOEING not get it?

737 MAX and Next Generations have severe saftey issues and need door redesigns.

It has been proven over and over again OVERWING EXITS are hard for passengers to use compared to floor level exits, and tend to back up and impede emergency egress far more than floor level exits.

Additionally, you cannot launch rafts from the aft door exits of the 737's as in a ditching you typically have the aft doors underwater, if the tail is still on the airplane that is.

Safety First and Congrats to Airbus for building a safer A321 design.

But NOT necessarily at Boeings Cabin Design Department.

Glad safety is number one in most of the other Departments shy of the 787 Battery Design Department.
