I wonder whether this is possible with additional restrictions imposed on the ferry flight.

For example, Indonesia can prohibit B737 Max 8 from MI to fly over any dry land unless in emergency, which will reduce the risk for crashing into settlements.

Also you can prohibit MCAS to be turn on and put the flight on manual control during the whole flight.

I understand many members will object this because of fatigue from pilots, but since this is only a one off flight, I don't think it is an huge issue.
