Airbus is ready for pilotless jets - are you?

Boeing made mistakes in its handling of an alert system on the company's 737 MAX planes and communicating the problem to authorities, Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said at the world's biggest air show in Paris on Sunday.

Speaking on Sunday before the Paris Air Show, Muilenburg told reporters that Boeing engineers learned in 2017 that a warning light in the cockpit of its top-selling Max, created to alert pilots when the two angle-of-attack sensors disagreed, didn't work as intended.

Boeing executives apologized Monday to airlines and the families of those who died in two recent crashes involving its new 737 Max 8 aircraft.

Oh wait, no he didn't.

Boeing told the FAA of what it learned in 2017 after the Indonesia crash. When asked if Boeing will be allowed to eliminate a wider range of physical tests, the agency's spokesperson Lynn Lunsford said that the FAA "makes determinations on a case-by-case basis, relying on data and decades of experience in certifying aircraft".

Joanna Toole from Exmouth and former University of Plymouth student Clare Auffret were among those killed when an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max crashed shortley after take-off. Muilenburg said it was "unacceptable" the company was not more transparent with aviation authorities and the global traveling public.

Boeing commercial airplanes boss Kevin McAllister said it was premature to predict any delays to the 777X program.

The Max was a direct response to rival Airbus' fuel-efficient A320neo, one of the European plane maker's most popular jets; Airbus has outpaced Boeing in sales in the category.

Davon Ames and Harper said after the incident, "we have to try our best to teach them that not all cops are bad". "It still hurts. Then, they berated, assaulted, and threatened to shoot them because their little girl took a doll out of the Family Dollar Store.

His comments on the eve of the Paris Airshow highlight efforts by Boeing to respond differently to the way it did in the days after the Lion Air crash in October, when it raised questions over pilot and maintenance issues.

Several manufacturers are presenting unmanned aircraft at the Paris Air Show, primarily for military purposes - and some are also proposing pilotless "air taxis" of the future.

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano with the latest on the fallout from the crashes of two Boeing 737 Max 8 jets. But Airbus has outpaced Boeing in selling planes in this category.

Gulf airline Emirates has said it expects the first plane in June 2020.

When it comes to autonomous passenger jets, safety is an obvious concern.

However, Airbus is heading into the Paris show with confidence.

He said he expected the Max to return to service this year and that 90 per cent of customers had taken part in simulator sessions with its upgraded software, as the company works towards a certification flight with regulators soon.
