All I'm going to say is: American Airlines flight 587. AA pilots are good but not flawless.

That all being said, if you aren't avoiding an AA MAX 8 because of the recent issues, you should all be avoiding it because of the inhuman conditions AA has configured them. The UN should be condemning them for human rights violations.
