  1. It’s all a mess. The engines were way too heavy and they tried to fix it with software that they paid people $9/hour to create. Pilots have a justified concern in case they need to fly it manually, in which case normal take off procedure wouldn’t work. Boeing calls them idiots then I guess cause they interpret it as not knowing how to use autopilot.

    Granted, it probably is hard to hear concerns of your customers with their heads shoved so far up their own asses

  2. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.businessinsider.com/boeing-737-max-employee-called-lion-air-idiots-training-request-2020-1) reduced by 89%. (I’m a bot)

    > Boeing employees called the airline involved in the first fatal crash of a Boeing 737 Max plane crash "Idiots" for wanting training before the airline started to fly the plane model.

    > The messages, which mocked the airline's inquiry, came as Boeing also convinced Lion Air that such training was not necessary – an idea Boeing used as a key selling point to airlines – both outlets reported.

    > Lion Air did not comment on whether it was the carrier named in the messages, but people familiar with the exchanges told Bloomberg that Lion Air had inquired about simulator training before accepting Boeing's line that it was not necessary.
