Re: MCAS seems like a bodge

Surely, Boeing should have fixed the actual design problem with the jet?

But to do that they would have had to give up the grandfathering rights of the airframe, and go through a completely new regulatory and certification process, which would have cost them both money, and time - which they didn't have if they wanted to compete with the Airbus A321neo.
