Asked at the Dubai Airshow whether he supported changes to software and training being finalised by Boeing, Tewolde Gebremariam said, "It is still work in progress... We will have to see it completed and the result of the further tests that are still to come."

Boeing Surges Most Since June on Optimism Over 737 Max Timeline

  Boeing Surges Most Since June on Optimism Over 737 Max Timeline Boeing Co. soared after providing more detail on how the 737 Max will return to the skies -- even as the company backed away from saying the grounded jet would win full regulatory approval next month. The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration is on track to certify redesigned flight-control software by mid-December, Boeing spokesman Gordon Johndroe said Monday in an email. That could enable the planemaker to begin shipping new jets that have been stashed across the Pacific Northwest and Texas during a flying ban imposed in March after two crashes killed 346 people.

Boeing 737 s operated by Ethiopian Airlines at Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa. By the end of January, Boeing had delivered over 350 737 Max jets since putting them in service in 2017. They have a list price of around 0 million, the company said, and around 5,000 more are on order.

Reports into the March 10 crash in Ethiopia and a Lion Air accident in Indonesia, which killed a combined total of 346 people, have suggested an automated system erroneously pointed the planes' noses down repeatedly after take-off.

Boeing says it has revised the software system to prevent repeated dives and is waiting for the approval of U.S. and global regulators before putting the plane back in service, expected early next year.

Asked whether Ethiopian Airlines would take any further deliveries of the aircraft, of which it has more than 20 on order, Tewolde told reporters, "We have not yet decided."

He was speaking at the Dubai Airshow after signing an agreement with Boeing to retrofit internet connectivity on a feet of 787 Dreamliners that the airline already has in service.

Safety officials probing records of work on Southwest jets

  Safety officials probing records of work on Southwest jets DALLAS — Southwest Airlines says it will speed up inspections of dozens of used planes it bought from foreign airlines after federal regulators threatened to ground the jets because they might not meet all safety standards. The Federal Aviation Administration said Monday that Southwest agreed to complete the inspections by Jan. 31, and that the agency will take more action if necessary. Southwest downplayed any risk to safety. The airline said repairs on some used Boeing 737 jets had been done but were not properly classified by previous owners.

The 737 Max is the newest version of Boeing ’s most important aircraft type, a plane family that generates almost one-third of the company’s operating profit. Since he took the reins as CEO in July 2015, Boeing has dramatically expanded cash flow and the shares have tripled. That has boosted the

He said the airline had no reservations about signing a new deal to enhance the 787 with Boeing, which was "more than 100 years old and a high-quality engineering company."

But asked about overall relations with the U.S. planemaker, he said, "It is work in progress. Let's wait patiently and see the final return to service."

He also said Ethiopian Airlines might add further orders for the Airbus A350, a rival to the 787.

"We have an order of 24, so depending on the market need, we will increase."

Tewolde played down past suggestions by the airline that it could take a stake in debt-strapped South African Airways.

"We are discussing commercial cooperation to work together and code-share, and training and maintenance cooperation," he said.

The airline, which competes with large Middle East carriers to connect long-haul passengers, has a strategy of building a patchwork of African routes and to fly customers toward expanding Asian markets.
