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.

Michael O’Leary said yesterday that Ryanair is in talks with Boeing about ordering more Max 200s, a high-capacity variant of the baseline Max 8 model specified by Ryanair, together with the airline's first batch of bigger Max 10s. The possible order would be delivered between 2024 and 2028.

Boeing plans to restart B737 MAX production by May 2020, ending a months-long halt.

Boeing is likely to get a big chunk of the $2000 billion coronavirus package set up by the Trump adminitration, some of which will probably be used for the 737MAX rescue efforts rather than for the coronavirus crisis...
