Boeing to cut production of 737 Max after two deadly crashes

Boeing said that it is planning to cut the monthly production of 737 Max airplanes starting this month, in the wake of two deadly crashes, as the company moves to divert more resources to bringing the 737 Max, which is currently grounded worldwide, back to the sky.Boeing’s monthly production of the 737 aircrafts will drop by 19.2 percent, from the current level of 52 a month to 42 a month.In a video statement Thursday, Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg acknowledged for the first time that bad data played a role in the two plane crashes, Indonesian Lion Air Flight 610 in October and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 in March, both involving 737 Max aircraft and killing a combined 346 people, as the aircraft’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System was activated in response to the erroneous “angle of attack” information.
