Is it true? Boeing has got clearance to resume production and deliveries of the 737MAX?

RTS is when??


I’m not sure Boeing needs ‘clearance’ to resume production, but what makes you think they can resume deliveries?

No word about re certification and FAA's approval, but they're telling the planet about restarting production.

Now, let's not forget how desperate is the situation behind the smokes. It might influence rationality in every behaviour.


No way is that gonna happen by May. Just trying to artificially prop up stock value. Another load of mouth squirt from Boeing.

Who would've thought two months ago that there would be no public progress on the MAX and yet we'd see almost no postings in this thread?

This thread, along with stuff such as Project Sunrise and when it might happen or when will airline XYZ order 100 pc. of airplane ABC have become totally unimportant. The world has other issues right now. I don't expect any news in the next few months at least.

True. The issues now are life, family, job, home. No one cares right now whether the Max flies again or not. After the pandemic, no airline will want to aleniate their passengers (when they finally come) by trying to push them into a Max.
Pretty sure a lot of Max customer airlines right now want to get out of the deal.

WN, FR, etc. all should just shut down rater than "push" their customers into a MAX, because articcruiser speaks for the world.

No need to shut down. 99.9% of planes out there are not maxes

Clearly an emotional response as you obviously have some weird psychological connection to boeing

Question is, what is happening with the MAX right now? There has been no news in the past few days.

I guess everyone is slightly distracted at the moment, but from yesterday:

https://leehamnews.com/2020/03/30/ponti ... arget-may/
Barring further issues, the FAA Type Inspection Authorization for the MAX is targeted for the second half of May, LNA learned.

This is a critical step in recertifying the airplane.

Also barring more unexpected events in a year filled with them, Boeing should resume production of the 737 MAX in May, LNA confirmed.
...
Barring any upheavals, certification is now targeted for late June or early July. This timeline fits with Boeing’s plan to resume production in May, about two months ahead of certification. Parties hope for concurrent certification between the FAA, Europe’s EASA and Transport Canada.


Barring was obviously the word of the day yesterday!

FOD was also widely used yesterday! 70% I mean like wtf?? :?: How can that happen?

Boeing must bring the airplanes out of storage and ensure airworthiness. It’s also dealing with Foreign Object Debris (FOD) left in fuel tanks and other areas that must be removed after inspection. LNA is told about 70% of the airplanes inspected so far have FOD.

Isn’t that number from when the issue first appeared? IIRC, FOD was found in 35 of the 50 planes inspected, but I haven’t seen any updated numbers since then. I don’t know how many of the 400 undelivered MAX have been checked for FOD.

Who would have thought two months ago that airlines with MAXs on order would be happy that RTS hasn't been authorized and Boeing hasn't restarted production yet?

I bet that with the coronavirus and crazy low oil price there are airlines getting NEOs from Airbus that wish Airbus would pause production.

So they are resuming production ahead of the final analysis by the regulators.

That’s a strong background for another saga chapter.
