BA, Lufthansa and the faulty 737

What happened? In March this year Boeing 737 Max 8 aircrafts have been grounded following two fatal crashes that killed a total of 346 people. Big similarities were found between the two crashes, resulting in investigators implicating the faulty angle of attack sensor triggering the anti-stall system. Boeing has responded by introducing quick software fixes with regulators hesitating to permit the planes to fly again. New orders for the Max 8 have halted since the grounding; however, a surprise announcement from Lufthansa and BA have indicated their interests in placing large orders for the 737 Max.
