The Boeing 737 Max has been welcomed back to resume operations after its fatal accidents in 2018 and 2019.
The American multinational corporation in manufacturing flights, Boeing reassured the public over the safety of the 737 Max after it was cleared by US regulators to resume flights in November.
The aircraft was grounded in March 2019 after two fatal crashes in five months that occurred in Indonesia and Ethiopia, killing a total of 346 people. In both incidents, the system crashed causing the nose of the aircraft to be pushed down repeatedly based on faulty sensor readings. Pilots were unable to regain control.
To bring the flight back to operations, Boeing accepted software upgrades and new safety precautions on a flight control system linked in both crashes. In concern of the incident, American Airlines took many measures including flight control updates, maintenance work, fresh pilot training, and meetings with flight crews to explain the changes and address concerns.
American Airlines is a major American airline headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, within the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex. It is the world’s largest airline when measured by fleet size, scheduled passengers carried, and revenue passenger mile.
