Boeing should rebrand 737 Max jet after deadly crashes, tweets Trump

A Boeing 737 MAX 8 airplane being built for Spain-based Air Europa rolls toward takeoff before a test flight Wednesday

FILE PHOTO: A number of grounded Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft are shown parked at Victorville Airport in Victorville, California, U.S., March 26, 2019. Trump said which, given his history with defunct Trump Airlines and other projects, triggered shooting-fish-in-barrel responses on Twitter, predictably taking "Trump Airlines" to Top-10 trending status worldwide.

Approximately 115 flights a day will be canceled through August 19, representing about 1.5% of the airline's total daily flights, they said. American has previously said that all flights that were originally scheduled on a MAX plane will not be canceled, with some being substituted with other aircraft.

Crash investigators have zeroed in on the planes' anti-stall system, the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System, or MCAS.

Army of lawyers prepares for Assange extradition battle
Prosecutors in Sweden have since confirmed that, while the investigation has not been resumed, they are looking into the case. It added that "justice has already been denied" in some parts of the investigation because of Assange's unavailability.

"This has without a doubt damaged Boeing's reputation and we foresee a dent to the (Boeing) brand's value at over $12 billion", Chief Executive David Haigh said by email when asked about Trump's comments.

American, which owns 24 of the planes, said last week that it would cancel flights through early June due to Boeing 737 Max 8 jets being grounded after two of the aircraft from Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines crashed, killing 189 people and 157 people respectively.

And Southwest Airlines, the other US airline that has 737 Max 8 jets, also has canceled flights involving the aircraft through August. And Boeing, which has already ceased 737 MAX deliveries and slowed the pace of production, a buildup of delays could increase the penalties it must pay client airlines, Hamilton said. While an updated model involves less intense additional training. In the meantime, the industry is working to regain the trust of the flying public. "My hope is the FAA, the carriers, the manufacturers and all parties will work very hard to make this grounding as short as possible so that these airplanes can get back up in the sky". 737 MAX planes with updated software have made 96 test flights, accumulating "a little over" 159 hours of air time as of April 11, according to Muilenburg.
