london there is more news from doha at the top of the hour. sri lanka's easter sunday bombings reverberated around the world with religious and ethnic tension rising one o one investigates it is the new front line in sri lanka on al-jazeera. hello i'm come on santa maria this is counting the cost on al-jazeera here with a look at the world of business and economics this week safety in the air 2018 was the deadliest year for the aviation industry for years so as the big players gather in france for the paris air show we'll be asking what went wrong the world's safest form of transport also this week it's a these populist coalition is considering a new domestic currency is that a move that could lead to its exit from the euro and if you worried about the kids
7:22 am
having too much screen time or being too exposed to the latest tech then we will show you this order. which speaks doesn't listen. so would be in the airline business these days what with trade tensions and disputes over aircraft subsidies and loans and the slowing global economy but you know there's a far more troubling trend to deal with when the industry could well do without. 2018 was the deadliest year the aviation industry has experienced for some time yes there were $37800000.00 flights last year which averages out to around $103000.00 flights a day so that volume is important to remember when we consider these numbers but there were 523 deaths last year the highest number in 4 years and up from just 59 in 2017 and this is already looking bad $232.00 deaths from the accidents involving
7:23 am
ethiopian airlines and rushes era flights that is well above the 5 year average of $199.00 fatalities a year according to the aviation safety network and front and center in all this is boeing a manufacturer once praised by pilots for its perceived safety there was that phrase very boeing i ain't going and yet 2 of its brand new 737 max jets have crashed indonesia's lion air in october and ethiopian airlines in march killing $346.00 people boeing expects the cost of grounding what is its fastest selling jet will be more than a $1000000000.00 and the airlines themselves expect losses of more than 500000000 due to the grounding and on top of all this spring is facing claims for compensation from the airlines shareholders filed a lawsuit claiming boeing put profitability and growth ahead of airplane safety and honesty and families are also suing the american airplane maker and so this week's
7:24 am
paris air show boeing executives were out to reassure the public and its customers that it is getting on top of the problems with the 737 max let's start with this from natasha butler at the port in the french capital. the latest model of the boeing $707.00 dreamliner on display at the paris air show it's one of the planes that boeing is banking on to salvage its reputation the u.s. plane maker is in crisis over it 737 max absent from the show it's been grounded since march off to 2 fatal crashes the mood was somber as boeing executives that their priority was for the 737 max to fly again and words simply cannot express the sorrow and the sympathy that we feel for the families and the loved ones of those that were lost in these tragic accidents these accidents have only intensified our efforts to ensure the highest level of safety in quality and
7:25 am
everything we do. the 737 max was boeing's fastest selling plane until a crushing oktober an ethiopian airlines accident less than 6 months later killed a total of $346.00 people preliminary investigation suggests the software designed to improve the plane's handling was faulty boeing hadn't informed pilots about the new software leaving them clueless when it failed the barras airshow would normally be an opportunity for boeing to showcase its sales and successes instead this year it's become an exercise in damage control as executives try to reassure airlines that they fixed the 737 max boeing's troubles have created a window of opportunity for the companies are driving european plane making a pass given the day or buses a production constrain the company both sides in about $11000.00 sales of the next
7:26 am
generation single while jets they can only produce so many at a given year given all the difficulties in ramping up so if the troubles continue it's an opportunity but realistically the problem should be solved by next year so the window of opportunity will quickly cause international regulators will decide if and when the 737 max will fly again boeing had hoped that would be within weeks but in a further blow for the plane maker u.s. regulators say the plane is unlikely to take off before december. let's talk more about all of this now with aviation analyst alex machar's joining us from london hi alex. just a terrible year for boeing or terrible 6 or 8 months really for the company one of the things it was talking about doing. was rebranding the boeing 737 max jets is that not just the ultimate sticking plaster i mean literally sticking something on the plane and trying to change the look and hoping no one notices exactly hello
7:27 am
come out well ultimately as you were saying with boeing facing its low. largest crisis in over a decade they are being forced to take measures that is less to do with the business and commercial side of the crisis and more to do with the reputation that has suffered massively in fact in one of the greatest ways boeing has ever experienced and ultimately the 737 max that phrase is a household name across the globe for all of the wrong reasons and the company to believe that the only way at the moment that could be necessary to restore that passenger trust is to actually stop for a ferrying it to the name that has such a negative association following those 2 fatal accidents and perhaps rebranded that there is talk that they will drop the word max from the aircraft and industry leaders and airline c.e.o.'s across the world some of them are very vocal in saying that they too agree that boeing should rebranded the c.e.o. of qatar airways the c.e.o. of kenya airways they have both said that they believe it's the only way passengers
7:28 am
will fly and not be too concerned when this aircraft is back in the skies honestly i'm struggling to see how that works out so i mean if i call on a plane called the 737 greatest plane in the world but i knew it was still a max i'm still going to feel a little bit concerned about it and i think a lot of fliers would feel concerned about and you make a very valid point but i think come out that's because you yourself would know that it was a 737 max for the rest of the public it's actually very unlikely that they would know if the aircraft itself isn't called a max now that may be astonishing you may think how could boeing try to hide away in this way you know and try to almost trick that passengers into thinking they're on a different jet but it is to do with optics and ultimately the airlines are already speaking to the manufacturers saying that the passengers are telling them when we see 737 max on the safety card or if the pilot mentions it in his announcement we will not fly and ultimately they think that just by removing the phrase and not
7:29 am
letting you know the majority. passengers won't notice i know that the 787 the dreamliner obviously didn't have anything major or is as fatal crashes but it had its problems with the batteries in its early life and it got through all of that it seems it did the $77.00 recovered pretty well after what was a very turbulent entry into service again the dreamliner was becoming a household name it didn't suffer as much as the 737 max had has right now following those 2 accidents but the dreamliner there were you know contradictory statements saying that it was nicknamed the nightmare liner after all of those problems with the onboard batteries that you know one aircraft here in london was on fire at the gates at london heathrow also ethiopian airlines who have suffered this latest 77 max crash so you know again back then the optics were very bad but it does go to show that aviation is incredibly resilient and also passengers quickly forget alex there was an order this past week for my a g.
7:30 am
the owner of british airways and iberia for some 737 planes. they count 737 dash 8 planes or dash one. of those max jets or not are we sort of is there a bit of smoke and mirrors going on here actually this was particularly interesting because in what is somewhat extraordinary measure i agee who the parent company of british airways they have given boeing the biggest vote of confidence that the company has seen since the crisis by signing a deal this week at the paris air show for 2737 max jet aircraft this is very unusual given that this aircraft is in the heart of its crisis it's good news for boeing but it has been met by backlash from the people that noticed that actually these are max jets because interestingly enough they decided not to mention the word max when they notified the london stock exchange here that they
7:31 am
are signing this deal and again that's probably because this could have sent. it says across the industry that at the heart of its crisis you have a major airline player ordering such a large amount of aircraft that passengers claiming they simply will not fly so with a vote of confidence like that alex what's your feeling bottom line can boeing get its way out of those tenets of vive given that really i know there are other plane manufacturers out there but really it's only boeing and airbus that really matter in the grand scheme of things for most airlines most big airlines at least for most airlines exactly the dominant players a boeing and airbus a notably boeing are extremely resilient we shouldn't underestimate the damage this has done and more so how this has kind of filtered down to the most basic level where i have people on the street telling me they won't fly the 737 max it will need probably to something like a rebrand where boeing a force to have to change the name to be able to hide away from the fact that this aircraft is the one that has suffered so famously but boeing as
7:32 am
a company they will get over this they got over the 787 dreamliner and get over the problems with this aircraft but the handling of this hasn't been so great and again this is why the company has suffered so badly i'm sure is that it's always a pleasure talking to you thank you for joining us thank you of course another issue we haven't addressed for the airline industry is pollution you have 800000 odd flights every day and that's a lot of carbon emissions but the growing pressure for greener skies is resulting in change things like more efficient engines and even electric planes once again here's natasha butler at the. stylish sleek and fully electric the evie asian prototype is a glimpse into the future and more environmentally friendly flying powered by batteries the 9 seats a plane on display at the paris air show would produce ciro carbon emissions and be fueled by sustainable sources the c.e.o. of the israeli start up behind the plane says he could fly commercially by 2022 can
7:33 am
we build an all electric 787 to compete with today's planes were absolutely none other it acknowledges not even close to that but to fly the speed of this size and to beat those designs that are out there since the seventy's or eighty's well here it is this was build the way we believe planes in the 21st century should be build electric planes could be a sustainable option for short flights but cutting c o 2 emissions on medium and long haul travel is a bigger challenge aviation officials say that the airline industry is responsible for 2 percent of the world's carbon emissions climate activists say that is nearer to 5 percent and one of the problems is that the technology needed to reduce airlines carbon footprint is still out of reach some airlines are experimenting with hybrid technology and biofuels nicholas chavez company is working.
