IATA Head Warned Against the Inconsistency Over Reapproving Boeing’s 737 Max

IATA chief worried about global regulators discrepancy over Boeing 737 MAX IATA Head Warned Against the Inconsistency Over Reapproving Boeing’s 737 Max

The complaints stemmed from a Boeing meeting last month in Seattle which was cut short by regulators, Dow Jones said.

Now, despite toiling away at the problem - and rolling out software updates to its aircraft - it would appear Boeing hasn't done enough to make its new jets flight-worthy.

AMERICAN Airlines Group has removed the Boeing Co 737 MAX from its schedule for another month, joining carriers cancelling flights until December and beyond as they await U.S. approval to fly the grounded jet.

Russian company taking Boeing to court in first lawsuit over 737 MAX planes A Russian aircraft leasing company has filed a lawsuit in Chicago against Boeing to cancel its purchase of the grounded 737 MAX planes in the first court case of its kind after two deadly air crashes involving the planes.

It had previously cancelled 115 flights per day and pulled the affected planes out of service through November 2.

A spokesperson for the regulator said "the FAA is following a thorough process, not a prescribed timeline, for returning the Boeing 737 MAX to passenger service".

American Airlines in August became the first USA airline to cancel a route because of the grounding.

The United Airlines on Friday said it would cancel 90 flights until December 19 due to the 737 Max issue.

Ethiopian Federal policemen stand at the scene of the Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET 302 plane crash, near the town of Bishoftu, southeast of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, March 11, 2019. Southwest has removed the aircraft from its schedule until January 5. A Boeing spokesperson was hopeful that the Max could be back in the air by December, but the timing is ultimately not up them, and some analysts think that next year is far more realistic.

"Our best current estimate continues to be a return to service of the MAX that begins early in the fourth quarter", the Boeing spokesperson said.

According to a Dow Jones report, friction between Boeing and regulators worldwide may keep the MAX grounded into the Christmas holiday travel season.

Adding to the concern was surveys among air travelers that showed the "fear factor" in flying 737 Max 8 exists. Official investigations into the accidents are ongoing, with Boeing unable to deliver any of its MAX jets until regulators have declared them safe.
