Ya I know this it was a terrible accident. I was trying to make a joke about Get-There-Itis. Not about the passengers dieing.

His comment is not funny, but there is truth in it. The push by airline companies to get good on-time ratings is still very present. In the battle between faster and safer, faster usually wins. The 737Max fiasco shows getting planes out the door is more important than making sure they're safe for crew and passengers.
the KLM pilot was THEIR CHIEF PILOT AND KNOWN TO BE ARROGANT SO MUCH SO the first officer told him they had not received their clearance but did not challenge him. This had to do with the cockpit culture at KLM and nothing else.
