Boeing has completed a software fix for its 737 MAX jets, but faces requests for additional information from US regulators, the company said.


   -- The FAA requested details about how pilots interact with cockpit controls 
      and displays in different flight scenarios under the revised software. 
   -- Once Boeing addresses the requests, it said it would work to schedule a 
      certification test flight and formally submit final documentation for 
   -- Although Boeing doesn't anticipate the requests will require more work or 
      significant time, there have already been a string of delays. 
   -- Further delays could add to headaches for airlines that have already 
      taken the 737 MAX out of schedules. 
   -- Boeing is conducting conferences for airline customers around the world 
      about the MAX changes. 
   -- The FAA will host a meeting of global regulators on May 23 in Texas on 
      the same topic. 

Why This Matters

The 737 MAX fleet has been grounded since March. Countries around the world prevented the plane from flying after a second aircraft crashed on March 10 in Ethiopia, following an accident in Indonesia less than five months earlier. The accidents together took 346 lives.

What They Said

"We are expecting additional information we requested," an FAA spokesman said, adding that "this process will require as long as it takes to ensure the aircraft is safe and returned to service."

"We're committed to providing the FAA and global regulators all the information they need, and to getting it right," Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said.
