Rumours are that the software that would have prevented the accident was an EXTRA and the 2 relevant airlines did not choose to purchase it. Is this fact or simply FAKE news

The Chinese news agency is prognostication about the American aviation industry. Funny that, the Chinese have not built tens of thousands of aircraft like the Americans. How many aircraft has China built excluding knockoffs ZERO. So Xinhua should just shut up.

ETHIOPIAN CEO is just letting off steam because in his culture he's to blame for buying Boeing's. Will ETHIOPIAN cancel its remaining contract with Boeing unless the cancellation fees are prohibitively not worth the effort. It doesn't matter if Boeing has your ink on a contract. It's a done deal. They have sold over 5000 variations of the 737 X 800. They cannot afford to screw this up. If they do Airbus becomes dominant.
