Doomed Boeing Jets Lacked 2 Safety Features That Company Sold Only as Extras"One of the optional upgrades, the angle of attack indicator, displays the readings of the two sensors.

How can safety be an “option “ on a plane worth tens of millions. Welcome to todays World where the pursuit of profit turns normal people into cretins. Then people preach about not needing regulations. The only people who need regulations are humans, because, given the opportunity, they will lie, cheat and steal to get ahead. Not all, but enough to really count.
If you have a system that is taking inputs from two sensors, then including a disagreement alarm involving those two sensors should be standard equipment. The aircraft never should have been certified without that being standard equipment.
Well said. A man that refuse to accept the -- that BOEING and the FAA trying to feed us.
Boeing will raise the price a few thousand and install these two things as standard from now on. Seems clear to me that pilot training needs to be improved to move from the 737NG to any MAX version.
Now you know why 737 Max was almost 1M cheaper than A320s
The real crime is that the anomaly caused by the bad sensor was noted on the Lion Air and they kept it in service, only to crash the next day.
