Boeing May Reimburse Airlines For 737 MAX Grounding

Axios reports:

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said the aircraft maker is having “ongoing conversations” with its airline customers about possible reimbursements following the grounding of its 737 MAX during an interview with Axios’ Mike Allen at the Aspen Ideas Festival on Wednesday.

The 737 MAX was grounded worldwide after crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia killed 346 people, highlighting concerns about its automated MCAS software system — which pushes a plane’s nose down if a stall is detected and played a suspected role in both incidents — and the FAA certification and pilot training surrounding it.
