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


Re: Question for the experts

Re: The engines on the 737 MAX series were moved slightly forward and up to maintain the necessary ground clearance. (ever wondered why the engines have flatted bottoms on the nacelle)

Why did Boing persist with developing and stretching the low-slung 737? The longer and then more modern 757 had much better ground clearance. The competing A320 also has better clearance, with no need for squashed nacelles or engines mounted fore and up. This to me seems the be the central problem here.
