    A/c obtained from other airlines. Maintenance histories vetted by contractors appear to have missing or incomplete (or possibly illegal) repairs.

    Just got word that MAX to be recertified and now this. Maybe WN should look at acquiring some Greyhound busses for shorter flights. :eek: Dallas-Houston takes about the same amount of time whether you are flying or driving. (Actually driving that route takes a lot longer than flying on most days. Getting out of Dallas and into Houston [and vice versa] can be brutal.)

    For the record... http://www.airlineforums.com/threads/faa-to-re-certify-737-max.62609/#post-1340975

    And, it just occurred to me...wouldn't you know that the FAA would announce recertification of the MAX after WN decides to ground the MAXes until at least March. Now the shop has to re-do all the MAX maintenance schedules again.:mad:

    How do you handle situations such as, missing repair documents? That definitely sounds like 3rd world documentation,
