Boeing heads to court to dispute a request from lawyers representing victims of a B737 MAX crash for documents related to the aircraft’s design, development and two fatal disasters.

Another problem for the 737 MAX: Boeing is inspecting all 400 stored B737 MAX for foreign objects in the fuel tanks, after the discovery of foreign debris in some fuel tanks. The inspections are "unlikely" to delay recertification or testing.

Look how well we are working! Finding even the smallest imperfection! Yes, we may have been a bit kludgy yesterday, perhaps, just the faintest tad; today however everything is bright and shiny and perfect!

Boeing plans to offer more financial and other support to its 737 MAX suppliers to prepare them to resume production — and dissuade some from seeking more business from Airbus.

Qantas CEO Alan Joyce says his airline's unmatched safety reputation positions it to negotiate a cut-price deal with Boeing for a new fleet of 737MAX aircraft when the grounded jet returns to the skies.

Pobeda will cancel several flights from Moscow to Italy and Turkey due to delays in deliveries of the B737 MAX.

Every day brings its new issue about the 737 MAX:

FAA proposed that airlines complete inspections on a key component that could make B737 MAX aeroplanes vulnerable to lightning strikes and interference from high-power radiofrequency transmitters before returning to service. Boeing says the proposal isn’t expected to affect mid-2020 return for the grounded jets.

Boeing is in talks with prominent customers about funding simulator training on the B737 MAX once it’s cleared to fly again, in a bid to mollify airlines frustrated by a global grounding.

Comair (South Africa), which reported a loss of US$37.1 million for the six months ending 31 December 2019, will accelerate compensation negotiations with Boeing over grounded B737 MAX, and explore the legal and financial consequences thereof.
