Engine oil pressure problem

It was an engine oil pressure problem or a problem with a volume indicator, according to the spokesperson.

The MCAS pilot assistance software, implicated in the Lion Air crashes in 2018 and Ethiopian Airlines in 2019, was not involved, she said.

The aircraft, coming from Miami, landed "after the pilots reported having turned off one of the engines in flight", indicated for its part the US agency overseeing aviation, the FAA, which plans to 'investigate the incident.

American Airlines was the first company to reintegrate the 737 MAX into its flight program at the end of December 2020, a few weeks after the green light from the American authorities.

"Inevitable"

These had required several modifications to the aircraft, including the MCAS software, as well as new pilot training.

FAA Director Steve Dickson warned at the time that it was "inevitable " that mechanical problems or suspected problems arise at one point and a 737 MAX has to return to the airport during flight, as is regularly the case with all aircraft models.

Boeing, which has set up an operations center that monitors all 737 MAX flights in real time, said on Friday it was "aware" of of the incident without giving further comment.
