Boeing CEO Stresses Firm's ‘Relentless Commitment’ to Safety in Open Letter

US, China trade negotiations may have hit a deadlock over Boeing crisis, curbs on Huawei

USA prosecutors and the Department of Transportation are scrutinising the development of Boeing's 737 MAX range of commercial jets, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

USA regulators and safety experts are now asking how thoroughly the FAA and Boeing vetted the anti-stall system and how well pilots around the world were trained for it when their airlines bought new planes.

Mourners in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia carry portraits of victims from the Ethiopian Airlines crash.

The motors on the new plane are heavier than in the 737 NG, posing more of a risk of stalling, so the MCAS was created to protect against the possibility. The FAA did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Canada's action.

United States plane maker Boeing has said to airlines across the globe they expect to have new software for the troubled Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft, by the end of March.

What, precisely, caused the crashes of these two jets within the space of five months? This basically was a fatal accident that involved a number of 737 Max 8 Model to be there in even less than 5 months.

Muilenburg added that Boeing have been working in "full co-operation" with authorities and regulators. One of the biggest unanswered questions: Was the plane's software to blame?

Boeing 737 MAX airplanes are seen at the company's factory in Renton, Washington.

Air Canada to suspend Boeing 737 MAX planes until ‘at least’ July, some flights affected

Air Canada said it's taking a number of measures to minimize the impact for customers, including aircraft substitutions, extending leases for planes, and suspending certain routes that were served by the 737 Max.

"We certainly can not buy this model-it's an issue of safety, not trade", said He Weiwen, a former Chinese diplomat, in a new report carried by the Financial Times on 16 March.

Boeing shares fell 1.8 per cent to $372 at end of trading in NY on Monday.

Over the weekend, a report in the Seattle Times claimed that some analysis before the crash found that the system, called the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System, revealed crucial flaws.

The Transportation Department's FAA regulates Chicago-based Boeing and is responsible for certifying that planes can fly safely. The airline also produced a Max 9 and has plans to offer a Max 7 and Max 10, with model numbers based on seating capacity.

Lawmakers and safety experts are asking how thoroughly regulators vetted the system and how well pilots around the world were trained for it when their airlines bought new planes.

Boeing's main rival, Airbus, has seen its stock rise 5 percent since the crash, but can not simply pick up the slack given the complicated logistics of plane-building.
