  • United Airlines to extend Boeing 737 Max grounding through November

Attorney General Bill Barr has recused himself from the ongoing Justice Department probe into Boeing that's connected to the two recent crashes of its 737 Max planes, a Justice Department official said. The plane was grounded after two devastating crashes in the space of five months that saw 350 people lose their lives.

Kevin McAllister, chief executive of Boeing's commercial airplanes division, stressed in the memo that the so-called new mid-market airplane (NMA) project would remain as a program.

United said Friday that it is dropping its 14 Max jets from the schedule until November 3 - a month longer than previously planned.

His resignation will trigger a leadership shakeup for both the 737 program and the proposed new mid-range aircraft, also referred to as the "New Midsize Airplane", or "NMA", that Boeing is developing to replace the aging 757.

Lindblad has been in the job less than a year, taking over as Boeing struggled with shortages of engines and fuselages from suppliers.

Lindblad said in a letter to employees that he planned to retire last summer but accepted the assignment to take over the Max program.

Boeing has been running its 737 supply chain at different speeds to keep it "hot" or ready to resume full-rate production as soon as possible after the crisis ends, posing logistical problems last seen on such a scale when the 787 Dreamliner was ramping up. Jenks previously managed the Boeing 787 program.

Lindblad, 57, "shared with me his desire to retire previous year, and we will now begin to embark on a thoughtful and seamless transition plan", Kevin McAllister, who runs the planemaker's $60 billion commercial division said in a message to employees Thursday.
