Donald Trump Boeing 737 advice: "REBRAND the plane"

American Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 sits at a boarding gate at La Guardia Airport in New York. American Airlines is canceling 115 flights per day through mid August because of ongoing problems with the Boeing 737 Ma

Trump tweeted Monday that if he were in charge of Boeing, he would "FIX" the plane, "add some additional great features, & REBRAND the plane with a new name".

American has 24 MAX jets and had previously planned to cancel MAX flights through early June.

According to CNBC, the cancellations amount to about 115 flights per day, roughly 1.5 percent of the United States' total flying per day in the summer.

Donald Trump has some advice for Boeing after two of their 737 Max 8 planes were involved in deadly crashes within five months.

Monday is not the first time Trump has offered his commentary on the 737 MAX planes.

In a letter to passengers and employees, American said that it was cancelling scheduled services involving the 737 Max "for the peak travel season to provide confidence to our customers and team members when it comes to their travel plans".

Initially, the Trump administration stood by Boeing's Max 8 and Max 9 following the crash, even after several worldwide airlines and countries immediately grounded the fleet pending an investigation. We're going to be issuing an emergency order of prohibition to ground all flights of the 737 MAX 8 and the 737 MAX 9 and planes associated with that line.

Egypt's president meets Libyan commander Haftar in Cairo
The World Health Organization said 121 people have been killed in the fighting and another 561 have been wounded. The meeting was attended by Egypt's intelligence chief Abbas Kamel.

"These last few weeks have been the most heart wrenching of my career", the Boeing chief said last week.

American Airlines has been forced to extend flight cancellations due to the grounding of the B737 Max until August 19.

A preliminary accident report into last month's fatal crash in Ethiopia found that faulty sensor readings and multiple automatic commands to push down the nose of the Boeing plane contributed to the crash, leaving the crew struggling to regain control.

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. US safety regulators have to approve the fix and decide on new training for pilots.

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

Parker and Isom said they are "confident" in Boeing's impending software updates and new training proposals, and remain in continuous contact with regulatory authorities over the MAX recertification process. "We didn't have to make this decision today", Trump said during the announcement March 13.
