As noted, Boeing did not notify carriers that a standard security feature that is present on the earlier models and is intended to alert the pilot about the faulty sensors of angle of attack was disabled. While in new aircraft models it is included only in an additional package options.

After the tragedy with Lion Air Southwest asked Boeing to re-activate the alerts on the planes that have entered the fleet.

In connection with this situation FAA inspectors considered the possibility to ban flights of the new Boeing aircraft, but soon the controller from this idea was abandoned.
