If it quacked like a duck, it would fly, even 8 hours.

When travel returns after pandemic, you too can fly a 737Max, an airplane that goes into a stall if not controlled by computer.

the efficiency, fuel per passenger, comes from more seats inside.

737-800 had max 189 seats in sardine configuration
737 Max has 204 in sardine configuration

Different model Boeing goes into stall. Carrying freight, the plane was unable to climb for 90 seconds.

It was bad enough when the plane carried passengers, but if companies think they might lose their inventory they'll vote with their feet. Boeing is dead.
