The first:1) being flown by poorly trained, sub-par pilots that were not able to handle a situation that other pilots have handled; 2) involving an aircraft, operated by one of the most accident prone airlines in the world, that should not have been flying at all due to persisting problems that reoccurred on the penultimate flight.
The JT610 crash should never have been allowed to happen; that aircraft should have been on the ground until it was fixed.
As for your body count, I take it that you would be fine with all A380s being grounded if just one full one was lost by a quality airline given the number in service is even less than the MAX?
Based on official report, the aircraft was fixed as per Boeing guidelines. Hence was released for operation. Boeing got their hand tied on this.The issue now is whether the AoA sensor was indeed faulty at the first place? Maybe it wasn't at all at first place.But God knows, let's wait for official report.
