My last trip was DTW-SEA with DAL and back, and my last long-haul flight was DTW-AMS in Delta One (a year ago).

The MAX always had 2 AoA sensors. But MCAS only used 1 AoA sensor at a time, there was no redundancy. If “only writing a few lines of extra code” means they’ll have dual redundancy it’s still unacceptable in my opinion. In September 2019, EASA said they “prefer triple redundancy”.
