On 737 Max 8 ban, Indonesia awaits FAA clarification | # AsiaNewsNetwork

The Boeing 777-X's Folding Wings Are They Safe

Sources have told ABC News the Lion Air Boeing 737 Max 8 also struggled to maintain a steady flight path and the MCAS was activated before the jet crashed into the Java Sea off the coast of Indonesia on October 29, 2018.

The cancellations will affect 90 flights a day.

Boeing's apology last week for two deadly crashes involving its 737 MAX model has emboldened a group of Indonesians whose relatives were killed in the first crash to sue for compensation, their lawyer said on Monday.

The scale-down was not given an end date, as 737 Max planes remain grounded across the globe after an Ethiopian Airlines plane crashed in March.

American Airlines previously announced it would cancel flights through April 24.

Followed by the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines jet on March 10th, killing all 157 souls on-board, just minutes after take-off, deliveries of Boeing Co.'s best-selling aircraft, Max 737 were terribly suffered after aviation authorities had decided a global-scale grounding of Boeing's Max 737 aircrafts. Pilots of each plane struggled in vain to regain control over the automated system.

Such a delay means an inventory buildup that won't start recovering until 2020, and may also "lower margins due to penalties owed to customers, weaker negotiating position with airlines as airlines consider cancellations, and operational inefficiencies from the production disruption", he cautioned.

Trump administration cancels MLB-Cuba deal
Under the agreement, ballplayers who met certain age and experience criteria could be signed by Major League Baseball teams. Last Wednesday, the CBF released the names of the 34 players eligible to sign minor-league contracts.

The lawsuit was filed at U.S. District Court in Chicago, where Boeing is headquartered. The two crashes killed a total of 346 people.

The 737 Max fleet was grounded following two fatal crashes in five months.

It's our responsibility to eliminate this risk.

Lawyer Michael Indrajana said that since the crash, families in Indonesia have faced a complicated and painful process against Boeing and Lion Air in their battle to get compensation.

Boeing is expected to submit the software update to the FAA in the coming weeks.

The announcement to cut production comes after Boeing acknowledged that a second software issue has emerged that needs fixing on the Max - a discovery that explained why the aircraft maker had pushed back its ambitious schedule for getting the planes back in the air. "We own it and we know how to do it".

"We are taking proactive, measured steps to invest in the health of our production system and supply chain, best positioning us for the future", Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said in a statement Friday.
