We don't know whether 737 Max MCAS update is coming or Boeing: Anti-stall safety fix delayed

Re: I'd fly in one today.

Absolutely. I think the two pilots on the Ethiopian flight had less hours combined than a US pilot needs in order to be in command of such an aircraft. AND the fact that a Lyon-Air dead-head pilot was able to overcome the same issue only the day before the crash shows me even the affected airlines had some competent pilots, just not at the helm on those fateful days.

I know that the FAA and EASA (U.S. and European aviation administrations) will cooperate (i.e. an FAA cert is good in Europe as well). I'm not aware of any other regions that have a competent enough administration to be considered legitimate globally.
