Re: Negligent certification
I really hope that if it is demonstrated that Boeing and FAA took "shortcuts" to allow the Max fly and be sold as an identical 737 replacement, the fines will be adequate to the deaths toll - and not only of US citizens.
Boeing will get sued. The FAA won't even though Boeing followed the FAA rules that industry lobbies for. If you need an example that everyone here can relate to, look at the FCC.
