Regulators to consider when Boeing 737 Max can return to the air

Regulators to consider when Boeing 737 Max can return to the air Boeing faces a crucial test this week as global regulators meet in Texas to determine when the grounded 737 Max aircraft will return to the air, after further revelations of problems with software used to train pilots to fly the aircraft. The world’s largest commercial aircraft manufacturer revealed at the weekend that it had been forced to correct a flaw in the software of flight-training simulators that are meant to reproduce the flying conditions of the Max aircraft involved in two deadly crashes in the past six months. The disclosure is a further blow to Boeing’s credibility, which has been seriously damaged by the two crashes, in which 346 people died.

Nadege Dubois-Seex lost husband Jonathan Seex in the crash. The couple had three children between the ages of 7 and 10.

“It is a tragedy which, by definition, could have been avoided, because it had already happened five months before. How could they stay deaf to this warning?” Dubois-Seex told reporters at a press conference in Paris. She was referencing the Boeing 737 Max 8 flown by Lion Air that crashed in October 2018 killing 189 people.

Boeing just announced last Thursday that it fixed the software glitch that caused both flights to crash.

“The life of my husband was taken knowingly, and even willingly,” Dubois-Seex said. “Boeing acted with cynicism. My husband was the collateral damage of a system, of a business strategy.”

The family’s lawyer, Nomaan Husain, said evidence shows that Boeing acted recklessly and actively disregarded passenger safety.

David O'Callaghan was walking along the Ha'penny Bridge when he came in contact with the poster which was hanging on a pole. He had moved suddenly in order to avoid bumping into someone on the busy path when he was scratched by the poster that drew blood from his ear. David, who is 6ft 2, said that the low position of the poster shouldn’t be allowed at a congestion pinch-point like this. He told Dublin Live: "This isn't the first time I've come across problems with election posters.

“We asked the jury, after considering all of the evidence, after considering Boeing’s reckless and willful action in which it consciously disregarded the safety of its passengers, to award a minimum in the form of a punishment of Boeing of $276 million,” Husain said.

“Is one day’s worth of gross receipts by Boeing severe enough to deter future behavior?” Husain said. “Or is it one week’s worth of wages, or one month, or one year? That’s going to be for the jury to decide.”
