Will induct 16 Boeing 737-800 NG aircraft on dry lease: SpiceJet

SpiceJet zooms over 9% on inducting new aircraft to its fleet

The meeting, scheduled to take place on Friday in Washington, comes as Boeing faces intense scrutiny after 157 people died in an Ethiopian Airlines 737 MAX crash on March 10 - the second deadly crash involving the aircraft in five months.

The Federal Aviation Administration, which will consider whether the plane can resume flying in the USA, plans to meet Friday with safety officials and pilots from American, Southwest and United, the three US carriers that were using the Max jet.

Initial findings from the Ethiopian Airlines crash show faulty readings on the plane's angle-of-attack (AOA) sensor caused the system to automatically push the plane's nose downward.

Boeing Chief Executive Dennis Muilenburg said on Thursday that the software update is working, with about two-thirds of the fast-selling jetliner's customers having seen the fix in simulator sessions.

The US Federal Aviation Administration and other national airline regulators grounded the 737 MAX following the deaths of all passengers and crew in two crashes - in Indonesia and Ethiopia. A preliminary report on the Ethiopian Airlines crash indicated that pilots struggled to control the MCAS before the crash.

Ex-White House counsel accused of lying about lobbying work
The Skadden and Craig matters have prompted the Justice Department to escalate its pursuit of foreign influence operations. His lobbying was allegedly linked to ex-Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort's political efforts in Ukraine .

The Boeing chief, speaking at a George W. Bush Presidential Center leadership forum in Dallas, said the last few weeks have been the most "heart wrenching" of his career. Muilenburg did not take any questions, and left immediately after his remarks.

Separately, Democratic Sen. Edward Markey of MA introduced a bill in Congress Thursday requiring plane makers to provide airlines with all safety equipment now considered optional and to do so without an additional charge.

The planes that crashed in Indonesia and Ethiopia did not have two optional displays that might have alerted the pilots to the malfunctioning sensors suspected of playing a role in the crashes.

The Air Line Pilots Association endorsed the legislation.

Muilenburg did not say when Boeing 737 Max planes may begin flying again. The complaint claims the company left out "extra" or "optional" features created to prevent the Ethiopian Airlines and Lion Air crashes.
