You're not Boeing to believe this, but... Another deadly 737 Max control bug found

SW10

It’s not my sector, but AIUI that would be a tacit admission that it’s not actually a 737 but a new model of aircraft.

Pilots would then have to be trained on the new plane and its behaviour, at a significant cost to airlines in terms of cash and pilot availability.

It may even be that 737 MAX has “inherited” some certs from its “predecessors” (same airframe?) and I don’t know what would happen if the aircraft suddenly became, I don’t know, the 797.
