Re: Already a patch available?

Given what's known of how the aircraft was performing prior to the crash, they know the crashes weren't the result of a stall. So between the "greater resistance of stall" and "less resistance of stall" choices it is obvious to take the latter.

If it turns out the cause of the crashes was something else, or two unrelated causes that had really terrible coincidence/timing, there's little harm done since MCAS is basically a backup to the pilot's abilities - if they are properly trained they should not put a commercial aircraft in a situation where it may stall in the first place.
