Default Future of single pilot ops thanks to the MAX

Remember this?

"Section 744. Single-Piloted Commercial Cargo Aircraft. Establishes a research and development program in support of single-piloted cargo aircraft assisted with remote piloting and computer piloting. A report is due six months after enactment on the program and the results of a review of the program conducted by the FAA in consultation with NASA."

It was evident to many that Boeing wanted the FAA to support research of a certifiable single pilot airliner. Even though the section was scrapped, Does recent events and the publicly questioned relationship of Boeing and the FAA further set back this likelihood in the near future? Might Trust lost delay the inevitability?

It won't take Boeing winning the fight in the USA to make it happen.

Some country somewhere will make it legal domestically and iron out the kinks with a slap on the back from airbus/BBD/whoever. From that point on we are screwed.
