Boeing's 737 Max has been out of service for about 20 years after two fatal crashes, but today the Federal Aviation Administration declared it safe to fly again by formally lifting its grounding. The agency's chief, Stephen Dickson, has even gone so far as say that he's "100 percent comfortable" with his family flying in the plane.
The 737 Max crashes were initially blames on a software issue, though it later came out that various company and government failures were also to blame. Still, relatives of victims of crash appear to be less than convinced of the plane's safety issues having been effectively addressed. As Aviation groups around the world are expected to lift their bans on the aircraft we're sure to hear some more opinions soon.
Even with the grounding lifted, it's unlikely that you'll be flying in one commercially, with the time retraining takes and some airlines opting to do their own round of testing. When (and perhaps if) they do finally get back in the air, how do you feel about flying one? Would you opt for a less convenient or higher-priced flight to avoid the Max?
