Boeing Jet Sales Have Tanked In The Wake Of 737 Max Crashes

  • Boeing finishes software update for grounded airliner

The software update was conducted after a two crashes involving the 737 MAX airplane: one in Addis Ababa in March operated by Ethiopian Airlines and one off the north coast of Java in October 2018 operated by Lion Air.

In its statement on Thursday, Boeing repeated its claim that its update for the 737 Max software has been completed.

Aviation regulators still have more questions about how pilots interact with the plane's controls under different circumstances, and Boeing says it is providing that information.

On Wednesday, the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure questioned Federal Aviation Administration chief Dan Elwell and National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Robert Sumwalt about the planes after airlines throughout the world grounded the 737 Max in the wake of two crashes that killed almost 350 people in Indonesia and Ethiopia.

In the United States, following regulatory approval of a Boeing software fix and new training, airlines will have to run through an FAA-approved checklist, industry officials say. Once that package is finalized, the FAA will schedule a flight test of the 737 Max's new software by its pilots, the agency said.

Speaking to reporters and analysts a day after SIA reported a 47.5 per cent drop in profits to $683 million for the year to end-March, Mr Goh said SIA will pay "close attention" to the developments of the 737 Max software update.

He said he was working with Boeing, regulators and other airlines to plan the return to service and discuss how to allay travelers' potential fear of flying on the Max.

Boeing's announcement about the software update followed the grilling of FAA acting administrator Dan Elwell by the US House Transportation Committee on Wednesday. Boeing believes that computer-based training - the type that could be done on iPads - is sufficient for pilots who know how to fly older versions of the 737, and a panel of FAA pilot experts agrees.

SpiceJet has been most affected by the grounding of 737 Max aircraft as it has 12 of them in its fleet.

The 737 Max was grounded after an Ethiopian Airlines crash in March killed all 157 on board.

Other reports have indicated flight crews may not have been aware the systems were not operational by default or otherwise received insufficient training. "I am not happy with a 13-month gap between finding that anomaly and us finding out about it", Elwell said.

Chief Executive Officer Goh Choon Phong said Singapore Air is keeping its orderbook of 31 737 Max aircraft.

With Boeing nearly finished with its software fix, the next step will depend on the FAA.

"That's the reason that we had this crash". When both Boeing and the FAA refused to ground the aircraft, the world's airlines and aviation authorities took things into their own hands.
