Performance problems have been discussed earlier in this thread, but do not seem to be the cause with the information we have now (as the forward speed was steadily increasing).

Feel free to chime in if you have other ideas, so we can discuss them. That is what this forum is about, rumours and their credibility.

Well, so is speed trim. But I wouldn’t be going out of my way to accomplish the runaway stabilizer NNCL on every departure I fly.

How we normally detect and identify a runaway trim is when we counter the trim which halts it, and then let go, after which the trim immediately runs agains.

With MCAS you counter the trim which...

Europe as well.

I think the FAA is one of the only ones to require ATP for FO's.

No, this is actually the modus operandi for all modern jets. Give the pilots basic background knowledge about the plane and an QRH that covers most failures.

Judging by the FR24 raw data their forward speed kept increasing, which does not point to any performance problems.
The question is why they couldn’t convert to forward speed into altitude.

If the same faulty system crashed two planes within the first two years of its existence, then grounding the planes until the issue is fixed does not seem premature to me.

Judging by the FR24 raw data, propulsion or energy-related issues don't seem to be the problem, as the forward speed is rapidly increasing.
The problem seems to lie in the fact they were unable to...

IF this is the MCAS fault again, then the consequences will be enormous, probably a grounding of the MAX fleet.

The rollspoilers also create a roll tendency by reducing the lift of the wing.
So basicly, when using small inputs, the airplane will roll in the wrong direction because only the aileron actuates....

Well, being an Embraer 190 pilot myself, I think they probably turned it off and on again. That usually fixes any problem on the plane ;)

As far as I know they still haven’t (but Ryanair is probably working on a permit), and if they have somehow gotten the permit then the pilots / VNV will surely be taking it to court.
