With the heightened trade tensions taking effect between the U.S and China, is this a question of aviation safety or geopolitics? "China is the last major regulator to persist with the ban on the 737 MAX", with it estimated to be months before the aircraft will actually be able to reach the skies of the country (Bailey, 2021).
