Re: Did the 737 MAX go one step too far?

Thanks for all the feedback people. It just still seems weird that Boeing would not have been more transparent and trained those lion pilots on the new procedures on the Max. Even Southwest and American pilots questioned Boeing on not knowing all the procedures on how to disengage the new AOA system.
