I intend to avoid them until they get extensive testing and re-certification by an independent agency (e.g. not the FAA). I do not trust either Boeing or the FAA to do the right thing, the economic incentives are too high.

Fortunately Boeing is not going to allow FAA to unground it until EASA approves it too. Can you imagine if it were still banned from European skies but flying in the US? That would kill it for good.

Could there be a political element here? The more changes EASA wants in the name of safety, and the more delays they add, the more airbus profits.

The have a clear incentive to force Boeing to make it far far safer than any other craft in the sky, and if Boeing complains, nobody will believe them.
