Southwest Pilots Boeing Plane

Southwest, the largest MAX customer at the time of the grounding with 34 of the aircraft, is now doing without 175 flights per day out of a total of up to 4,000 while the planes are out of commission.

The comments by Forkner, who has since left Boeing, were among those pinpointed by US lawmakers in hearings in Washington as evidence Boeing knew about problems with flight control software well before two crashes of its 737 MAX aircraft in October 2018 and March 2019 killed 346 people.

The 737 MAX crisis is one of the most serious in Boeing's 103-year history and has already cost the company tens of billions of dollars, triggering multiple investigations by United States authorities and a cascade of complaints from victims' families.

One of two Boeing Co technical pilots who described flaws in a crucial flight control system in leaked 2016 instant messages has been transferred to a new job at the US planemaker, two people familiar with the matter said on Tuesday. That helped lift the Dow into positive territory: Boeing is the most heavily weighted stock in the index. Nevertheless, the manufacturer has a clear target that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will approve the required software updates to the aircraft in Q4 2019, which would result in deliveries and commercial flights starting in the aforementioned timeframe.

Boeing will then submit to the FAA all the necessary materials to support software certification. Boeing noted, however, that the decision rests with FAA. The deliveries are important to Boeing, because it collects most of the money from a sale when a plane is delivered to an airline.

"In parallel, we are working towards final validation of the updated training requirements, which must occur before the MAX returns to commercial service, and which we now expect to begin in January", Boeing said.

Gustavsson has been transferred in the last two weeks to Boeing's Test & Evaluation group, a source familiar with the matter said.

The airlines have pushed back on the date when they expect to resume the flights they have canceled due to jet's grounding.

Singapore Airlines has said approvals by Indonesia and China might be needed before it returns regional arm Silkair's six 737 Max jets to service, based on the routes they fly.
