After a series of deadly crashes and with aviation authorities round the globe applying strict protocols for the air-worthiness of the Boeing 737 MAX, the embattled company now seeks to cut its monthly production of the 737 MAX model which prior to the fatal accidents was one of the highest ordered model from the aviation company.
In a statement on Friday, the Boeing signaled it would reduce the quantity of production of the 737 MAX model by approximately 20%. After the Ethiopia crash which killed all 157 people on board, the company plans to produce at least 40 models of the 737 MAX per month.
Airline officials are hinting the possible grounding of the model for up to 2 months or longer. While addressing the media on Friday, the CEO of Boeing Co. Dennis Muilenburg said the company now know that there are series of linked events which caused the crashes and are traceable to misaligned activations of required software.
