Boeing certainly is not without fault. They are imperfect people building imperfect aircraft. That being said, these aircraft should not have crashed.
Modern aircraft have many systems designed to make air travel faster, safer, and more efficient while reducing pilot workload, which improves safety. Boeing does all it can to achieve these goals, but they are not, and never will be, perfect.
Every system on an aircraft will have some degree of failure of some sort sooner or later. There is an army of people whose jobs are to prevent inflight problems. I was one of those people for 35 years. The pilot's job is to recognize the inflight failure and take appropriate action. That's why they make the big bucks and their training is incredibly important.
Boeing tries to give the pilots a solution to every problem, and there was one, as one flight crew demonstrated. The other flight crews should have taken the same action and landed safely.
We're back to flight crew training.
By example, a US based air carrier loses both engines on takeoff over New York City and everyone survives. A foreign air carrier loses one sensor and everyone dies. Twice.
It doesn't get more clear than that.
