You know what the real problem is? They will ALWAYS FIND MORE SOFTWARE BUGS and vulnerabilities... This is exactly why Microsoft and Apple kept asking you to let them install updates.

Isn't it time to pull the plug?

Looks like Boeing is pulling the plug on themselves. They are moving into unknown territory with hundreds of aircraft with airlines and many more stored prior to delivery to a dwindling number of customers. The next issue will be to see how the public will react when the Max are cleared to fly again.We will be watching with great interest.

I think Boeing will drop the MAX designation. I know some people on here think only experts like themselves know what a 737 MAX is, but the public isn't always as dumb as they think. The use of the MAX name helps people remember it when they might not know the difference between a 787-9 and 787-10 or 737-600. If paying passengers start avoiding airlines that fly the MAX, those carriers will really suffer. If Boeing doesn't drop the name, I bet a lot of airlines will do so on their own.

I think they should wait until there are an even 6000 on order, then pull the plug.

You could say the same thing about any aircraft and its systems if thrown under the same microscope. You never find all the needles in a haystack.

EASA finding more reasons to keep the MAX grounded - with some of them being the same problems found on the A330 and A320 that did not result in grounding. Witness all of the pitch down incidents resulting from software faults. About time the FAA issued grounding of all Airbus.
