I understand about the ban on flights to the US by Indonesian air lines, but it was a brand new plane. Admittedly, glitches occur with new products, but this accident raises questions about all of this: maintenance, safety, airplane testing/manufacture.

Default Lion Air flight recorder reveals pilots' desperate efforts to save doomed plane

From the moment Lion Air Flight JT-610 took off from Jakarta last month, something was wrong. The pilots were quickly locked in a deadly game of tug of war with a brand new Boeing 737 Max 8.

I wish there were something on the flight recorder that would've explained why they didn't turn off the stall control.

Clues to that mystery are probably contained on the still missing CVR.

Like DrRocket says, we won't know for sure until they find the CVR, but speculation on NPR the other day is that they either didn't know about that feature, didn't realize it was the source of their problem, or didn't know how to turn it off. Apparently other 737MAX pilots have claimed they didn't know about it until that report came out.

But pilots at several other airlines, including American Airlines and Southwest Airlines here in the U.S., have complained after this crash that they did not know that these new Boeing 737 MAX planes had this automated system
