Default Will the 737 Max be forever stained like the Comet?

A third crash would pretty much seal its fate.

Even if Boeing 737 Max jets are cleared to fly, 4 out of 5 Americans say
they wouldn't get on board: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZ5smsrodSQ

Boeing may have ruined their name for rushing to get a leg up on Airbus:

Don't want to fly on these planes? Fly Delta. Delta doesn't use the 737 Max:

A friend of mine is an retired airline who worked for an airline that
was willing to pay for safety and had apparently paid for a package that
would reduce the chances of a crash like those two. He also pointed out
that even if the system had a problem that made it too difficult for a
pilot to override the avionics, there was an easily accessed switch to
shut it off.

Which apparently wasn't part of the training delivered to those without
the fancy $w upgrades. Exactly how you can buy _any_ plane without the
latest and greatest SW that will run it being in place is a question
that the FAA needs to answer.
