American Airlines Flight Staff Union: Cant rush back

According to Dennis Tayer, after the Lion Air crash in Indonesia last October, a number of pilots who were flying over 737MAX8 airliners raised safety issues, which must be thoroughly solved. Before ensuring safety, 737MAX8 airliners can not fly back.

Dennis Tayer: As pilots, we take off our watches and put our calendar in the drawer. We are committed to doing this (solving the problem of aircraft safety). I believe all stakeholders think the same. If someone doesnt think so, lets remind him how many passengers died on this plane and we owe them. Never act in haste. We know that there are various interests involved, but one of the most important interests is to be responsible for the lives of passengers on every flight.
