There is, as yet, no proven evidence for the contrary view either - that the Ethiopian accident was not caused by a technical issue.

Only 350 of these birds have been delivered. Two have crashed, with what appears to be superficial commonalities, in less than 6 months.

I wouldn't necessarily avoid travelling on the type, but I wouldn't be critical of somebody who does.
