Re: Garuda may cancel remaining orders of 737 MAX

Good. Maybe they can invest in their country's airport infrastructure instead? I'd recommend starting with installing an ILS or two and investing runway pavement and overrun barriers.

Re: Is Boeing’s reputation now tainted?

737s were lawn-darting due to rudder hard-overs frequently in the 1990s - USAir at PIT, United at COS, and Eastwind (nearly crashed).
Boeing survived that. They will survive this.
