The pilot may have been briefed but wasn't 'trained' as far as I can tell. There were a few clearer articles that I can't find immediately, but the search terms are a bit tricky. I will try to find the others later.
This was extensively discussed earlier. Despite the article's attempt to sensationalise the issue, it actually shows Ethiopian Airlines to have been ahead of the game as they were amongst the first in the world to be getting hold of the simulators, which practically noone currently has. So yes the CEO was absolutely correct saying they had received the new training.
So hopefully we will all acknowledge and give credit where it is true for Ethiopian apparently being leaders on this , rather than bringing up already debunked media nonsense to throw more dirt at the pilots and the airline.
I am not throwing any dirt in anyone. I am saying there are conflicting reports. Then provided evidence of conflicting reports. Your turn: provide evidence ET are leaders in this area.
Very simply, Ethiopian got a 737MAX simulator. Non of the USA airlines having grounded the MAX, got one. It is not Ethiopians fault, that Boeing has hidden MCAS so well, that non of the MAX simulators sold to customers are able to provide MCAS training or the effects of AOA sensor failure (or its downstream electronics).
So Ethiopian was at least leading the USA airlines.
