737 MAX-9 first flight.

Unlike most in the industry, Boeing knew it was in for a rough 2020. It just probably didn’t realise how bad.

This week, World of Aviation’s Adam Thorn and Hannah Dowling discuss how the planemaker dealt with the dual blows of struggling to certify the MAX and COVID.

Will passengers be scared to buy a ticket? Does Ryanair’s deal herald a breakthrough moment? And can the MAX ever reclaim its position as one of the world’s most successful planes ever?

Finally, the team discusses the departure of the 747. Will we ever see the like of the Queen of the Skies again?
