Trump offers FIX for Boeing 737 MAX: Add great features & REBRAND

The cancellations come after the Boeing 737 Max's anti-stall software was implicated in an airplane crash in March in Ethiopia, CNBC reported.

US President Donald Trump today offered Boeing Co advice in the wake of two fatal crashes involving its 737 MAX jetliner, saying the planemaker should "rebrand" the best-selling aircraft after fixing it.

American, which owns 24 of the planes, said last week that it would cancel flights through early June due to Boeing 737 Max 8 jets being grounded after two of the aircraft from Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines crashed, killing 189 people and 157 people respectively.

One can think of a few products that had worse public-relations problems. "But again, what the hell do I know?", he added.

Trump Shuttle fizzled out in 1992, in a haze of loan defaults, bank negotiations and acquisitions.

In remarks on Thursday, Muilenburg said the company had completed 96 test flights totaling a little over 159 hours of flight time on 737 Max jets with the updated software.

Southwest has removed the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft from its schedule through to August 5th to add further stability for customers booking their summer travel. "We are the real final call", said Dennis Tajer, spokesman for the U.S. Allied Pilots Association.

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

Ethiopian Civil Aviation Authority has published a preliminary report of the Ethiopian Airlines flight ET 302 crash on April 4, 2019, deeming that angle of attack (AoA) sensor malfunction had a role in the tragedy.

But by extending cancellations through the summer, the airline can plan more reliably for the peak travel season, said Doug Parker, American's chairman and CEO, and Robert Isom, its president, in a letter to employees on Sunday (local time).

Boeing's 787 Dreamliner got off to a rocky start after a battery issue that led to a temporary grounding, but the plane has gone on to become a popular aircraft in the widebody market.

Currently, Boeing has pilots from American Airlines testing a software update to the MCAS system in the simulator at the Boeing facility in Renton, Washington.
