In the past so has JT, Indonesia, ET, Ethiopia, EASA, etc., etc. Your point? What does that have to do with re-qualification?
It would make sense to install EICAS into the MAX. Already done in the P-8 so Boeing has experience with doing that.
It would make sense to fix the manual trim wheel, hardly something that is outside the competence of Boeing.
I can keep on with all the complaints of the various certification authorities that have been here discussed before.
The above will cost money, that is why Boeing is dragging its feet and plays chicken with the regulators, daring them to not certify the bare minimum Boeing is prepared to do.
Please point to where EASA has to your knowledge accepted safety related corner cutting, because it would cost the aircraft producer more money to do it the right way.
Your argument that it is allowed for Boeing to cut corners, because everybody does it, does not hold water.
Is the A320 NEO certified to the latest standards and has been fully updated for every new standard that has come into existence since initial certification in the 1980's? If not you better ground that as well.
