At 09:33, there's a good look back on how the MAX came about. Boeing was getting beat up badly in market share by Airbus. They wanted to do a new plane, but had to respond to the sales slump. American Airlines, for example, purchased 200 Boeing to 260 Airbus and that was only possible by promising to deliver an up-engine 737. Market pressures forced their hand.
