Boeing May deliveries fall by 56%, Max 737 grounding howls holocaust

"Boeing is now providing additional information to address Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requests that include detail on how pilots interact with the airplane controls and displays in different flight scenarios", the representative said.

When asked if he believed the 737 Max would resume flight before the end of the year, Muilenburg said, "I do, but again, I can't give you the specific timeline on it".

The 737 Max will definitely fly before the end of the year, said the FAA security expert Ali Bahrami, the Bloomberg news Agency on Wednesday in Cologne.

Knowing when the aircraft may return to service would help airlines contend with the disruption caused by the grounding of the narrow-body Max, Boeing's most popular model.

- American Airlines plans to continue canceling flights scheduled on Boeing 737 MAX jets through September 3.

"We are encouraged by the reported progress and proposed path forward for returning the aircraft to service, and we remain confident that, once certified by the FAA, the enhancements will support the safe operation of the MAX", Southwest said.

"We'd like to get it flying again so when customers get on it, they realize it's been flying potentially for weeks", said Ross Feinstein, a spokesman for American.

Boeing is now working on the development of a modified version of this specific software model 737 MAX and hopes that the FAA and its foreign counterparts will again authorize them to fly again, which could happen in December, according to Bahrami.

Boeing has cut its production rate for the model by 10 planes a month to 42.

The airline had previously canceled all 737 MAX flights through August 19 as it awaited recertification of the aircraft in the wake of the crashes.

Boeing fell.66 percent to $347.03.

The 737 Max had been grounded in a number of countries and regions, including Mexico, the European Union and the United States following the tragic crash of an Ethiopian Airlines 737 Max flight, just months after a 737 Max operated by Indonesia's Lion Air crashed under similar circumstances.
