Issues can always arise, and it would be unfair to draw any firm conclusions about the Leap at this stage. However, the question must be; is the cause of each failure similar/related. You all know...

Dismissing PAX concern based on widely reported concerns about possible inherent problems with the Max 8 as "hysteria" is the opposite of a safety-first mindset. You know no more than I do if the two...
