Boeing Hushed Info About Safety Alert Problems With 737 MAX for YEAR - Reports

The US-based company came under scrutiny after two of its best-selling jets crashed within five months, killing 346 people. After media leaks pointed to Boeing’s dodgy behaviour after the Lion Air disaster last October, new reports have suggested that the aviation giant was not forthcoming about its new plane’s faulty alert system with airlines.

Industry and government officials, cited by The Wall Street Journal, said that Chicago-based Boeing Co. knew that there was a problem with the cockpit safety alert on 737 MAX jets for a year before one of them crashed in Indonesia in October 2018. Nevertheless, it did not reportedly provide some carriers and pilots with consistent explanations even after the first tragedy and became “more forthcoming” with airlines only after the second 737 MAX crashed in Ethiopia.
