    Starting from 2021 January it'll be used commercially in most of Europe (EU Zone), Brazil, India, and U.S. (I think).

    Over 300 people died and based on that I wouldn't risk my life taking a ride that could cost my life. Still, how about y'all? Would you be willing after they say it's safe? Or 2-3 years later?

    I will, but let other people try it first.

    from what i saw from many youtubers, seems all commercial pilots have to get additional and more specific 20H training before they can fly Boeing 737.

    Well the FAA and EASA have both passed it fit to fly so I would trust the experts and would get on one without even thinking about it.

    About the same because they aren't going to crash again.

    I probably have seen every episode at least once lol I can tell the cause of the crash before they tell you.

    I'll fly on them for sure. The probability of dying in an aircraft crash is so low it's comparable to the survival rate of people who get the Chinese Wuhan Coronavirus (COVID-19). : ) Both the virus and the ride will most likely not kill you.

    Yes then the planes were downed by a fault nobody in aviation had ever thought could happen which has now been fixed.

    Sadly sometimes in life it takes a few disasters to take place for people to then find things that nobody ever thought could happen.

    While I believe they are now safe to ride I still don't intend to ride one anytime soon.
    The Concorde died because it didn't make money. Here is a more thorough explanation:

    The problem was caused by a sensor in the nose of the plane.
    Apparently it gave erroneous readings.

    They 'fixed' it, via software update.

    Seems they could have installed another god damn sensor!

    I won't use it soon because our house renovations cost so much we don't have money for luxury vacations (and I'm not sure if it's OK to fly with a baby). And of course the obvious reason not to travel these days.

    But other than that I've got no problems(okay, aside the ecological one) . Far more people die on the road on a daily basis, yet we don't hesitate to use cars. It's just a psychological effect : you overestimate instances and minimize statistics*, and overestimate your own skill as a driver.


    *I admit I've got nothing on this new plane. If this crash was one of the very first flights its a different story

    the situation is different from the earlier stage when the company were greedy so they rushed the release, in order to beat the competitor AIRBUS. (the VOX made a very detailed video about it)
    the sad and infamous 737 at nowdays, can be considered safe, cauz has:
    • updated gyroscope software.
    • Boeing is providing 737 simulator to all major aviation companies, in order to train their commercial pilots.
    • all existing 737s will be tested before back on duty.
    In shorts, Boeing can't afford to lose any credibility and market share in favor to AIRBUS, all grounded 737s have to be fixed and tested before u set foot in.

    But personally i puked Boeing, and their GREEDY behavior has already claimed 700+ innocent lives, just let others test it before!

    Boeing, VW, J&J, Bezos etc it's impossible to escape feeding the beast. I do not trust gyroscope, I would only trust at least 2 gyroscopes. The more gyroscopes, the safety will exceed God's grasp. How will you die, it will not be from too many gyroscopes.
