100 million is nothing compared to what they are going to have to pay once it is proven that it was deliberate, they knew exactly what the problem was and let it go. in fact they offered the mcas as an option rather than essential, not that it has worked in this case anyway. they will go bust sooner or later.

Update ...........MoA:

The New Delay Of Boeing's 737 MAX Return Will Not Be The Last One

The fallout from the unprecedented grounding of Boeing's 737 MAX planes keeps growing. The return of the planes to the sky will need to be delayed again and again.

The Wall Street Journal writes (also here) that the MAX is unlikely to be back in the air by the end of this year:

Fixing the Boeing Co. 737 MAX's hazardous flight-control software and completing other steps to start carrying passengers is likely to stretch into 2020, an increasing number of government and industry officials say, even as the company strives to get its jet back into service still this year.

This confirms our (MoA) previous reports which showed that several of the issues the regulators marked will require extensive fixes.

I don’t think the MAX is ever coming back to the skies. Too much liability should another one crash, especially in the USA. Boeing should recall all the MAXs and convert them to the NG model with smaller engines and sell them off at a discount to low budget airlines. As for the new MAX to be, re-design the 737 that would accept the larger engines now and in the future. If that is too much trouble and not cost affective, bring back the 757 as the new MAX. In either case, do away with the MCAS and let planes fly as planes naturally.

When you look at he broad picture this has happened because 'bean counters' made engineers upgrade what they had rather than create a new design ..... so that the Company made bigger profits! I think that has proved to be a very poor and costly move?

...family members testify today, in Washington, that Boeing have not ever contacted them, since the crash.
