Air travel is one of the safest (0.18 fatal accidents per million flights) and fastest mode of transportation out of all the other modes of transportation. Aviation industry has generated over 838 billion USD revenue globally (2019, Statistica). Despite its huge contribution to the global economy, the aviation industry is majorly dominated by two key aircraft manufacturers, Boeing (American) with its 7-series of jets and Airbus (European) with its A-series of jets. To compete in the market, Boeing launched 737 MAX series in 2011, which promises to be more fuel efficient compared to its previous model (737 NG) and competitors (A320). However, within a few years of its operation, two 737 MAX fatal crashes occurred in October, 2018 and March, 2019, respectively, killing all passengers and crew onboard (Total = 346). This raised a serious question as to how safe is 737 MAX for further operation. This research paper aims to review the facts, analyze critical decisions, study their impact on the results and to discuss the best practices on the subject under review.
