President Trump Says Boeing Should 'Rebrand' the 737 Max After Fatal Crashes

  • Boeing 737 Max aircraft lands at the Southern California Logistics Airport in the high desert town of Victorville Calif

A preliminary report says the aircraft nosedived several times before it hit the ground despite pilots "repeatedly" following the procedures set out by Boeing.

American explained on its website that not all flights previously scheduled on a MAX would be cancelled, because the airline planned to use other aircraft for some flights.

"We remain confident that the impending software updates, along with the new training elements Boeing is developing for the Max, will lead to recertification of the aircraft soon", Parker and Isom told employees.

The Ethiopia Airlines jet reportedly had its angle-of-attack sensor damaged on takeoff from a foreign object or bird, experts said last week.

According to CNBC, the cancellations amount to about 115 flights per day, roughly 1.5 percent of the United States' total flying per day in the summer.

Last week, Boeing investors filed a class-action lawsuit in Chicago alleging Boeing defrauded its shareholders by failing to reveal potential safety shortcomings of the 737 MAX after the two fatal crashes.

On Thursday, Southwest airlines announced the decision to extend its cancellation of Boeing 737 Max aircraft through August 5.


Boeing also faces a tsunami of lawsuits arising from the 737 MAX that will amount into the billions of dollars. It will likely submit the fix to Federal Aviation Administration regulators within the next few weeks.

The announcement made American the second major carrier to cancel flights using the plane through the busy summer season in the northern hemisphere. They will discuss the progress of the FAA's review on the 737 MAX.

"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".

As a result of the worldwide grounding of the 737 MAX, airlines that operate the aircraft have suffered financial losses and operational issues. The loss is mainly from the 737 MAX being out of commission in their first quarter.

Numerous families of the 346 victims of Lion Air Flight 610 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 have filed multiple lawsuits against Boeing.

Do you think the 737 MAX will be in service for Southwest before August 5th? "We own it and we know how to do it", Muilenburg added.
