Default A long wait

Regulators are so skittish about the MAX that Boeing will be lucky to see that aircraft in commercial service around the world by this time next year! Sad but they have brought this on themselves ...

Boeing CEO says he knew about test pilot's warnings before second 737 Max crash

On the anniversary of the first of two deadly crashes involving Boeing 737 Max jets, the comany's CEO has apologized to families affected by the air disasters. Dennis Muilenburg made the apology at a Capitol Hill hearing Tuesday. (Oct. 29) AP, AP

He also disclosed he was notified before the second crash of a test pilot's signal of "egregious" problems with the Max's flight control system, now believed to be at fault in the plane's two crashes.

Overall, however, CEO Dennis Muilenburg took an apologetic stance before the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee. The hearing was attended by family members of the 346 people who lost their lives in the crashes. They stood at one point to show large photos of their deceased relatives.

Not only will the 737 Max not fly again until all agree it is safe, Muilenburg said, but Boeing also is reviewing all its safety policies.

"On behalf of myself and the Boeing Company, we are deeply and truly sorry. As a husband and father myself, I am heartbroken by your losses. I think about you and your loved ones every day, and the entire Boeing team does as well," he said.

This has completely changed the way I see Boeing. Why is he still at Boeing having been aware of the issues before the second crash those lives cannot be brought back all over making the next $.

Default Boeing sacks CEO Dennis Muilenburg to restore confidence in plane maker after 737 MAX

Boeing sacks CEO Dennis Muilenburg to restore confidence in plane maker after 737 MAX crashes

Boeing has sacked its chief executive Dennis Muilenburg following a year of intense scrutiny and industrial setbacks set off by two fatal crashes of its 737 MAX jetliner.

The company announced that chairman David Calhoun would take over as CEO and president from January 13, saying a change in leadership was necessary to restore confidence in the company.

The management shakeup comes as the world's largest plane maker struggles to win regulatory approval for its grounded best-selling jetliner, while also trying to regain trust with passengers and airline customers.

The US aerospace giant decided to hit pause on making the 737 MAX after a two-day meeting in Chicago last week.

It followed news the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) would not approve the plane's return to service before 2020.

The company said it would stop production of the jets in January.

The 737 MAX has been grounded since March, after crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia within five months of each other killed 346 people and cost the plane manufacturer more than $US9 billion ($13.1 billion).

Boeing 737 MAX Cleared to Fly Again, but Covid-19 Has Sapped Demand

The U.S. on Wednesday approved Boeing Co. ’s 737 MAX jets for passenger flights again after dual crashes took 346 lives, issuing a set of long-anticipated safety directives and notices to airlines globally that will help resolve the plane maker’s biggest pre-pandemic crisis.

The Federal Aviation Administration’s official order to release the MAX, grounded since March 2019, came as the Chicago aerospace giant grapples with a host of new problems in the midst of the continuing health crisis.

The FAA’s mandate allows Boeing to resume delivering the jets to airlines and lets them carry passengers, pending completion of certain mandatory fixes and additional pilot training requirements spelled out in related documents also released by the agency. U.S. carriers said Wednesday that they would broadly reintroduce the MAX into their schedules starting early next year, while FAA chief Steve Dickson said he expected approvals from some foreign regulators within days.

But the pandemic has sapped demand for air travel, prompting airlines and aircraft-leasing firms to cancel about 10% of Boeing’s outstanding MAX orders this year. Boeing has said it believes hundreds more of its remaining 4,102 orders could be in jeopardy because of the financial health of some customers.
