    EASA is still in the process of finalizing the MAX's certification as well as Canada and Brazil. Boeing took a hard hit with these incidents. If Boeing wasn't trying to slip MCAS in under the table I think the return to service and certification would have been sooner. The FAA also has a reputation to regain as well as Boeing. It will take time but I found the general public has a short term memory. The plane will probably fly for decades just like the DC-10 and the Lockheed L-188 Electra did after their design errors were corrected. My daughter gave me a model of the 737 MAX in Boeing house colors. Looks pretty cool on my bookshelf. I'd fly on one given the opportunity.

    I think EASA is also taking their time since they are partial to AirBus!!!

    Airbus is jointly owned by France, Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom!

    25 aircraft is a small considering world wide effect of this. Why Canada can not get together with the FAA is disturbing.
