Perhaps for a cross check the computer should require the pilot to enter the runway length as well. As long as humans are in the loop we will screw this sort of thing up. We are not yet at the...

Um, I think that you have that example backwards in an industry that is not exactly a shining example of the free market anyway. In this case, government agencies commanded airlines to stop flying...

I doubt it is a coincidence that he moved to the main US customer for the MAX, there is probably some tricky legal or political reason that we don't understand. I really don't think that he is...
