Airbus says it has developed technology to fly passengers jets with no pilots at all. Its chief commercial officer, Christian Scherer, said that the barriers which remain are human: convincing regulators and passengers to accept the planes. "This is not a matter of technology — it's a matter of interaction with the regulators, the perception in the traveling public," Scherer told The Associated Press. Trust in the airline industry remains low after two Boeing 737 Max 8 craft crashed within five months of each other, killing all 346 people onboard. Scherer said the crashes "highlighted and underlined the need for absolute, uncompromising safety in this industry." Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.
