Re: ... the FAA's statutory mandate to "promote" the aviation industry

Just to make things clear: when I wrote "grandfathering bullshit" I was referring to the way it was used in the context of the 777 MAX, not to grandfathering in general. Obviously, in said context, changing the weight, power and size of one of the most important elements in a plane -the engines- and adding on top of that a piece of software to compensate for the differences should be a huge reason for NOT allowing grandfathering.
