I think they can save it, but they are not going to be able to keep the common type rating with the old 737 and Boeing should quit trying to do so.

They need to put pilots through simulator training of both kinds of MCAS failure: (1) MCAS goes nuts and needs to be turned off, and (2) MCAS is not there to save you when you need it.

So long as Boeing refuses to capitulate, the grounding is going to go on, and the longer the grounding goes on, the more problems are going to be discovered, the more orders get canceled, etc.
