Trump's advice to Boeing following fatal crashes: 'REBRAND' after fixing 737 Max

Trump's advice to Boeing following fatal crashes: 'REBRAND' after fixing 737 Max

Boeing is working on proposed software updates that would prevent the repeated triggering of a system that can drive the plane's nose down.

The US and other countries, including Australia, grounded Boeing's 737 MAX planes in mid-March after deadly crashes in Ethiopia and Indonesia.

Federal regulators on Friday briefed pilots and USA airlines on progress in restoring Boeing's grounded 737 Max to flight. But operators of the grounded Boeing 737 MAX are facing a different problem: scarce planes and booming demand.

A preliminary report says the aircraft nosedived several times before it hit the ground despite pilots "repeatedly" following the procedures set out by Boeing. The software fix is to include changes to prevent the system from overreacting to bad data, a new set of cockpit alerts created to make pilots aware of potentially risky situations, and a new pilot training course. The company had initially planned to submit its full package of software and training changes to the FAA for review by the first week of April, but the submission was delayed.

It earlier removed the Max from its flight schedules through June 5.

United Continental, the third US carrier with Max planes in its fleet, has not yet extended its Max-related cancellations. They will discuss the progress of the FAA's review on the 737 MAX.

Southwest Airlines also removed the Max jet from its schedule through August 5, and United canceled Max flights through June 5, according to the report.

"But by extending our cancellations through the summer, we can. provide confidence to our customers and team members when it comes to their travel plans. They can see it, but they can't meet it", said Mike Trevino, spokesman for Southwest Airlines Pilots Association and an aviation industry veteran.

Low-priced carrier Southwest, which unlike its rivals only flies Boeing 737s, had estimated $150 million in lost revenue between February 20 and March 31 alone due to MAX cancellations and other factors.

As a result of the worldwide grounding of the 737 MAX, airlines that operate the aircraft have suffered financial losses and operational issues. 2,800 of those canceled flights have been caused from the 737 MAX being out of service. Let us know in the comments!
