I don't think they have learned anything from all this, or they really care about safety....
To be fair, according to the article, it seems the head of the APA (which represents AA pilots) is the one saying simulator training "poses logistical issues." Additionally, the union says Boeing "has said that simulator training is not necessary, and is recommending a mandatory computer-based course that explains MCAS and could be completed at a pilot’s home in about an hour, according to pilot unions."
