These words ring out in your head,
As you look down at the boarding ticket—
(The max, the max,
It’s the ‘MAX’ that does it!
Standing blatantly as it does, for MAXimum profits);
Oh the connotations that name conjures up…
Whatever you do, from now on,
It’ll always be synonymous with a bunch of things,
None of them pretty!
Faulty sensor reading,
Profits over lives!
It turns out that Boeing has been quietly rebranding the 737-MAX-8 to 737-8. So actually the scenario I described will never happen :).
