@British_Airways Hi, I would like to know if this aircraft is the same model as the one crashed? I would like to know if the same aircraft is going to be used for my trip to Durban tomorrow? I’m just concerned and worried. @kulula @comair #EthiopianAirlineCrash #BOEING737MAX8

Does #SouthwestAirlines publish the planes flying certain routes/flights? I have a flight in May and I need to know because they have the #BOEING737MAX8 in their fleet and there is no way I am getting on one. Consumers need to refuse to get on this plane so crashes stop.
