Boeing cancelled a conference call with airlines about systems and features of its 737 MAX – a model which crashed in Indonesia in October.
On October 29, a 737 MAX operated by Lion Air crashed, resulting in the death of all 189 passengers. Investigations are on to uncover whether or not airlines/pilots were informed of the new features of the aircraft model. Some operators have reportedly claimed that Boeing had not provided adequate information on the changes to the 737 MAX's software system. Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg seems to be denying the allegations. "Continued media speculation has introduced false assumptions. It's important you know the facts to the extent we can share them at this stage of the investigation," Muilenburg wrote in the email to employees, while adding "I have supreme confidence in all of you and our products, including the 737 Max, but when it comes to safety, our standards of excellence can never be too high." (as reported by CNBC.)
While Boeing has held off the conference call, the aircraft manufacturer will reportedly continue to interact with individual airlines on a regular basis, according to CNBC.
