It would probably be smarter to lower the price on all MAX flights to entice people to fly on them but not allow changes without paying the fare difference. At least until people are confident that they aren't going to die.
They could defer part of the fare until you land, so that you pay the extra only if you don't die.

Or they could offer a free $10 million death benefit to MAX8 passengers, causing all MAX8 flights to sell out to people convinced it's a death machine.
