Boeing may reimburse airlines for 737 MAX grounding

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said on Wednesday that the aircraft manufacturer

上海千花坊is having “ongoing conversations” with airlines about possible reimbursements following the worldwide grounding of 737 MAX jets.

The airlines haven’t disclosed how much they are seeking from Boeing, but some analysts peg industrywide losses at about $1 billion. In an interview with Axios, Muilenb上海千花坊

urg didn’t say how Boeing would compensate airlines, but it could be cash, a discount on future orders or additional pilot training and services.

Airlines seeking compensation include Air China, China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Norwegian Air, Turkish Air, Ryanair, Flydubai and United Airlines.上海千花坊品茶微信

“Reimbursement isn’t a technical problem,” John Cochran, president of Eaglemark, an aviation con

sulting firm and professor emeritus of Aerospace Engineering at Auburn University, told China Daily USA. “It’s a matter of first imp

ression. Some of what Boeing proposes to do may be contractual and it’s certainly sound public relations. Boeing wants to keep its customers happy.”上海千花坊

The 10,000-member pilots union for Southwest Airlines said this month it will ask B

oeing  for compensation to cover legal costs and lost income for pilots due to the 737 MAX grounding.

上海千花坊品茶微信The union hasn’t said how much pilots have lost, but it could be as much as $9 million a month, the Dallas Morning News reported.

Southwest has 34 MAX jets in its fleet. The airline said it plans to resume MAX flights on Sept

2, but the union said “there is no accurate estimate of when the MAX will return to service.”

上海千花坊品茶微信Airlines have used other planes when possible to replace grounded MAX jets, but some flights have been canceled. The airlines appa

rently seek compensation for lost revenue as well as storage and the cost of preparing the MAX to return to c

ommercial service when the US Federal Aviation Administration and other regulators say it’s safe to fly.

Boeing MAX jets were grounded worldwide following crashes March 10 in Ethiopi

a and October 29, 2018, in Indonesia that killed a total of 346 passengers and crew.

Preliminary investigations suggest the aircraft’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), an automated anti-stall device, apparently fo

rced the noses of Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines flights down and into a fatal plunge when it erroneously deter

mined the planes were about to stall. To avoid a stall, MCAS points the nose of the plane down to gain air speed.
