Boeing, Regulators Delay Fixes Prompted by Lion Air Crash: WSJ

(Bloomberg) -- Boeing Co. and regulators are expected to delay jetliner safety fixes for hundreds of 737 MAX jets until at least April, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing industry and government officials familiar with the details.

  • Fixes prompted by the Oct. 29 crash of Lion Air’s Flight 610
  • One reason for the delay stems from differences of opinion among some federal and company safety experts over how extensive the changes should be
  • The 35-day partial government shutdown, during which consideration of the fixes was suspended, also created delays
