Boeing 737 Max8 vs Antonov 148/158

Check this out. That is, the contrast between the Antonov 148-158 family of jets and that horrible 737 Max8 plane which could sink Boeing. The main difference is the high wing on the Antonov plane; you could put any engines you wanted under those high wings without any kind of problem but the 737 with the monster/super-efficient engines just about has to have perfect conditions and a perfectly clean runway to operate. Even previous versions of the 737 have been called "the vacuum cleaner" for sucking up every sort of dirt and debris from runways, often noisily.
