the airlines lack standing to vouch for the max jet 737's- conflict of interest here much?

Use your brains- we do not know the reason(s) for either crash, there is a aura of suspicion that needs complete clarification, else the jets ought to be grounded until we all know what is going on.

What a ridiculous comment, proof that just because someone has a right to a view does not make in valid.

The regulator's primary role is to ensure as far as possible the safety of passengers, as a % of fatalities against safe flights completed the 737 Max has the worst safety record of all time. When a regulator decided not to ground the model one can only conclude that it applied greater weight to considerations other than passenger safety. Could it be argued that this was a dereliction of duty? If this plane was manufactured by Airbus would the decision have been different? The FAA has lost all credibility with me.

Hmm: whilst it has, in the space of five months, closed in on the 1950s initial failure record of the Comet, the 737-MAX *IS* killing more passengers in each incident.

I take comfort from the fact that, in this era of social media, manufacturers (however well-embedded with the current USA administration) cannot over-ride a tidal wave of frightened negativity. I do believe, however, that the FAA should have "grown a pair" in a shorter time period.

It is sad that some 300 people had to die before Boeing finally tells pilots to RTFM. Has the 737 reached its shelf-life, continually tweaked beyond the sensible limit? Yes, it has clocked up 5,000 orders, but should it not have been replaced by a newly-developed airframe where the engines don't drag along the runway?
