The two crashed Boeing airplanes may have lacked safety features that were only available as expensive add-ons, according to The New York Times. Airlines like Indonesia’s Lion Air skimped on the upgrades, hampering crew members who were trying to pull the plane out of its fatal nose dive. Last October, Lion Air Flight 610 crashed in Indonesia, killing all 189 passengers and crew members on board. The plane’s anti-stall feature then pointed the plane’s nose downward to counteract the supposed stall, leading the aircraft into a deadly dive. The other safety feature was an angle of attack indicator that could display the readings of the two sensors.
