FAA issued an emergency airworthiness directive on about 250 B737 MAXs after Boeing sent a bulletin to carriers in the aftermath of a deadly Lion Air flight.

Indonesia’s transport ministry is conducting a special audit on Lion Air, following the crash of one of its B737 MAX 8 on 29 October 2018. The audit will cover aspects including personnel qualification and standard operating procedures.

The US pilots union ALPA told US safety regulators that the union was concerned about “a potential, significant aviation system safety deficiency” in the B737 MAX, one of which crashed last month in Indonesia.

Boeing is weighing plans to launch a software upgrade for its B737 MAX in six to eight weeks that would help address a scenario faced by the Lion Air crew during last month’s deadly crash in Indonesia.
