Which plane to pick? Both United flights, 20 min time difference, same price. One is a 737 MAX 9 and the other 737-900 (layout 3 per seat guru). Buying 1st class tickets. I know there was the whole thing with the MAX planes in 2019/2020, but I have reasonable confidence that it won’t be a problem. But aside from that it’s a coin flip for me unless someone has some input
