I can't see the aircraft returning in the US while Europe will not certify it. The insurers would never accept that, and unlikely the US pilot unions would either.
Quite interesting development. I'd expected the Chinese to be the most recalcitrant regulators, rather than the Europeans.
That said, there is surely some sense of betrayal behind this, the Europeans feel deceived by the inadequate FAA supervision of the MAX.
Agree fully with WHBM, this story has a long ways to go.
