C'mon guys, seriously? Nice example of nitpicking. If you want to read bad and negative news about Boeing, just read Aviation24.BE
https://avherald.com/
Please have a look at the list of incidents reported by the avherald. Which one is mentioned here? The one about a B737 Max involved.

I really hope that the next flight you book they'll give you unexpectedly a Max :mrgreen:

Cheers,

FAA safety engineer goes public to slam the agency’s oversight of Boeing’s 737 MAX.
The Seattle Times: "...Haunted by the two deadly crashes of Boeing 737 MAX jets and his agency’s role in approving the plane, veteran Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) safety engineer Joe Jacobsen is stepping forward publicly to give the victims’ families “a firsthand account of what the truth is.” In a detailed letter sent last month to a family that lost their daughter in the second MAX crash in Ethiopia two years ago this week, and in interviews with The Seattle Times, Jacobsen gave the first personal account by an insider of the federal safety agency’s response to the MAX crashes..."
