Boeing executives yesterday, Monday 17th June 2019, apologised to airlines and families of victims of 737 Max crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia, as the US plane maker struggles to regain the trust of regulators, pilots and the global traveling public.
Boeing was in a visibly contrite mood at the opening of the Paris Air Show. Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg earlier said the company made a “mistake” in handling a problematic cockpit warning system in 737 Max jets before two deadly crashes of the top-selling plane.
He promised transparency as the aircraft maker works to get the grounded plane back in flight.
Speaking before the industry-wide Paris Air Show, Muilenburg told reporters Boeing’s communication with regulators, customers and the public “was not consistent. And that’s unacceptable.”
