What’s wrong with this plane
The biggest problem is with its engine. Even if fuel is saved, the engine itself can reduce its speed and cause the vessel to stop. To overcome this problem, the company has deployed software called MCAS. But often this software also gives false instructions, which increases the chances of a ship crashing.
