- Lion Air Flight 610 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crashed within five months of each other despite being effectively brand new.
- Both flights lacked two optional safety features that could have prevent the crashes, because Boeing charged extra for them, The New York Times reported.
- They were an indicator that determines how much the plane’s nose is tilted, and a light that activates when the plane’s nose sensors are at odds with each other, The Times said.
- Boeing will reportedly now make one of the features standard on all 737 Max jets. The company is also planning a new software update.
