And it makes me wonder if Boeing should have built the 787-300 instead of the 737Max. Yes the max is a great aircraft but wasnt the 787-300 suppose to fly around the same distance with more passangers??

I agree, this is a recycled 737 with serious and deadly changes. Namely the position of engines and wings. Wind tunnel testing should have caught this. Did they use old data from other 737s. Is this the primary reason for the crashes?

It's not just the number of seats and the range, the cost-per-seat-mile is very important and had a lot to do with why airlines wanted the MAX and why Boeing built it.
