Boeing Estimates The 737 MAX Will Fly Again In Mid 2020

Aviation executive urges Boeing to ditch ‘MAX’ name for future planes

Following Boeing's announcement, Canada's WestJet Airlines said it would remove the 737 MAX from its schedule through June 24.

It previously said it expected the planes to be cleared for approval before the end of 2019.

Based on regulatory approval in the first quarter, the three US airlines that operate the 737 MAX - American Airlines Group Inc AAL.O , United Airlines Holdings Inc UAL.O and Southwest Airlines Co LUV.N - were scheduling MAX flights in early June.

The long-term grounding of the Max cost the company its title as the world's largest plane maker, after the number of jetliners it delivered in 2019 dropped to less than half of rival Airbus' tally.

The company said: "We are informing our customers and suppliers that we are now estimating that the ungrounding of the 737 MAX will begin during mid-2020".

"This updated estimate is informed by our experience to date with the certification process".

Microsoft's Internet Explorer web browser has once again come into the security vulnerability limelight. It also bears a striking resemblance to a similar vulnerability that was recently disclosed by Mozilla.

Boeing has been forced to halt trading in its shares as the commercial aerospace titan warned of yet another delay to its grounded 737 Max fleet.

Boeing has pushed back its estimations for a return to service of the 737 MAX to mid-2020, confirming that the plane will remain on the ground for well over a year in total. "It also accounts for the rigorous scrutiny that regulatory authorities are rightly applying at every step of their review of the 737 MAX's flight control system and the Joint Operations Evaluation Board process which helps determines pilot training requirements". Getting that issue resolved has the potential to cause further delays.

Boeing said Tuesday it now projects the 737 MAX won't get clearance to fly until mid-year, months further out than previously expected. "We will provide additional information about our efforts to safely return the 737 MAX to service in connection with our quarterly financial disclosures next week".

Do you think the Boeing 737 MAX will return to service in mid-2020?

In December, FAA head Stephen Dickson told CNBC that there are 10 to 11 "milestones" to reach before the agency will allow the planes to fly again. Let us know what you think and why in the comments!
