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.

Mr Ky's presentation showed a refusal to accept delegation was the first of the four conditions that had to be met before flights in Europe could resume.
The other three were:
- an "additional and broader independent design review" by Easa
- that the two fatal crashes were "deemed sufficiently understood"
- and that flight crews had been adequately trained in any changes to the plane.
