Trump says Boeing should fix Max jets, then rename them

A Boeing 737 MAX 8 airplane being built for Spain-based Air Europa rolls toward takeoff before a test flight Wednesday

The US and other countries, including Australia, grounded Boeing's 737 MAX planes in mid-March after deadly crashes in Ethiopia and Indonesia.

Carriers that have used the aircraft since it went into service two years ago have had to rethink their flight plans since alarms were raised over its safety in the wake of two fatal crashes.

Federal regulators on Friday briefed pilots and United States airlines on progress in restoring Boeing's grounded 737 Max to flight.

"By extending our cancellations through the summer, we can plan more reliably for the peak travel season and provide confidence to our customers and team members when it comes to their travel plans".

An Opinium poll published in the Observer newspaper showed the Conservatives at 29 percent, down 6 points from March 28 and 7 points behind Labour.


Not all flights previously scheduled on a Max will be canceled, and other other aircraft maybe substituted, the airline said. American Airlines on Sunday said it was cancelling flights on Boeing 737 Max aircraft through August 19 while it waited for Boeing and the US' Federal Aviation Administration to fix and recertify the aircrafts' flight-control systems.

"These 115 flights represent approximately 1.5 per cent of American's total flying each day this summer", American Airlines chairman and CEO Doug Parker said in a statement.

The plane is grounded as investigations continue into the Ethiopian Airlines crash last month which killed all 157 people on board.

"We remain confident that the impending software updates, along with the new training elements Boeing is developing for the Max, will lead to recertification of the aircraft soon", Parker and Isom told employees.

The FAA initially said Boeing would complete the software fix "no later than April".

Chief Executive Dennis Muilenburg has apologised on behalf of Boeing for lives lost in two recent accidents and promised that it would address the risk that flight software meant to prevent the plane stalling could be activated by wrong data.

Southwest Airlines also removed the Max jet from its schedule through August 5, and United canceled Max flights through June 5, according to the report. USA safety regulators have to approve the fix and decide on new training for pilots.

The grounding of the 737 MAX has caused Southwest to cancel thousands of flights in their first quarter.
