    Dummy question. The max is will be just the 900 or will they also produce a max800?

    The MAX is like the previous NG series. They're making examples of each model. 700 MAX, the 800 MAX has already flown. And now so has the 900 MAX.

    Fun fact: the MAX can apparently only have the cross pointer/dual cue/real man's flight director and it's been a major training headache at Southwest as they try and transition over from V-bars.

    It's not that hard to learn is it??

    Edit: To be fair I do use the V bars at the sim and the cross points in real flying haha

    Took me about 5-10 minutes after Flying V-bar style FDs for my entire career...so no it's really not...and I actually like it better now.
