American Airlines CEO says expects 737 MAX approval in near future

Boeing 737 MAX United Airlines Grounded

Boeing and Collins, a division of United Technologies Corp. that developed computer automation on the 737 Max, are making changes to a safety feature on the jet that was involved in two fatal crashes on the plane that killed 346 people.

Boeing and legislators will return to Iowa at a yet-to-be-decided date to finish the audit, the delegates stated. The documentation was complete, and it was provided in a format consistent with past submissions. "Regulators have requested that the information be conveyed in a different form, and the documentation is being revised accordingly".

The extent of the delays brought on by the documentation necessities was not instantly clear.

Boeing is ramping up the number of people assigned to address the software documentation officials, a source said. Boeing shares closed down about 1%.

CEO Muilenburg was grilled at a US Congressional House Panel Hearing later last month over telling half-truths linked to potential glitches in its autopilot software of which Boeing Co. pilots had not been trained or notified either. "It's not about my money", Mr Muilenburg said at The New York Times DealBook Conference.

American Airlines CEO Doug Parker says his airline is feeling more confident that its grounded Boeing 737 Max jets will soon be approved to fly again. Depending on how long it takes to satisfy FAA and EASA, it could push back a certification flight test and regulators' final decision on lifting the flight ban by a few days or even weeks, said the person.

Airlines across the world, including in India, grounded their fleet of the Max aircraft after twin crashes - Indonesia'a Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines - had resulted in more than 300 passengers losing lives.

Boeing has repeatedly delayed its timeline for returning the plane to flight by the end of 2019, as regulators have scrutinized proposed fixes. In 2008, EASA almost derailed Europe's Airbus A400M https://www.reuters.com/article/us-air-a400m-idUSTRE6570NK20100608 military transporter over software documentation following a failed audit.
