That may sound like a lot of airplanes—but American Airlines alone operates almost 1,000 passenger jets. And unlike what happens when there is, say, a freak snowstorm or computer outage, most airlines should have time to reach out to customers scheduled to fly on the Boeing 737 MAX in the coming days and weeks.
The solution, then, is twofold: Boeing started by warning airlines that the MAX’s angle of attack sensors had malfunctioned before, that such a failure could lead the MCAS to push the plane’s nose down, and that pilots could safely defuse the problem by cutting off the trim system and working the plane manually.
“The FAA looks at all of this information and decides, ‘OK, if it’s just likely that there's a significant problem here, it doesn’t matter what the cost to the traveling public is—we have to put safety first and ground this aircraft,’” Balog says.
Today, trans actors play trans characters in all manner of programming, from Laverne Cox on Orange Is the New Black to the majority of the cast of Pose , but as Max transitioned on The L Word his appearance—basically Sea with a fake beard pasted on—became almost comical, making it hard to take him seriously as a character, and as a man.
