Great idea!
Iirc, there is established tradition justifying such a move. It is applied when Cardinals take too long to elect a new Pope. Penalizing the elected officials for not doing their job...

Hope that you are right, that I was maligning Boeing unfairly in this instance. Can anyone give a definitive answer?

Interesting to have another 'protection' system, a la MCAS, that obviously limits the pilot's inputs. Boeing, unlike Airbus, used to have a philosophy that the pilot should be able to bend the...

Is that not what the existing system is expected to achieve, by isolating the faulty element?

Just as in the Lion Air 610 accident, the SAS 751 crew also lacked knowledge of a critical system feature.

Yet it did not stay in the Army inventory and was not picked up elsewhere. Presumably it was too specialized or too costly to sustain. One wonders whether an updated version with modern engines,...

The take away is that the best informed and most interested observer, MOL, has concluded that they are toast and is acting accordingly. Most interesting.

A design where the circuit breakers can put all power offline with no obvious way to reset them seems deficient. How does that get regulatory approval?

Seen that the issue is with the GE engine, which is also used on the A 320, Norwegian would be just as stuck if they were flying A 320s.
