Boeing in hotseat after Indonesian MAX jet crash

Syari and Pratama had been due to Wednesday on November 11 but he was killed when Lion Air flight JT 610 crashed on October 28 shortly after take-off from Jakarta, reports Standard UK.

Boeing calls its 737 Max "the fastest-selling airplane in Boeing history", with more than 200 planes now in service throughout the world.

"We have been very engaged with the investigative authorities throughout in providing all of the information necessary to make sure we do a full assessment of the situation", Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said in an exclusive interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business Network on Tuesday.

The Wall Street Journal reported there were concerns about the automated stall-prevention system on the American jet maker's MAX 8 and MAX 9 models, which was created to stop flight crew mistakenly raising the nose of the plane dangerously high.

USA aviation safety experts and pilots associations say Boeing didn't tell them about a new flight-control system on 737 MAX aircraft, a sensor which Indonesian officials think could be involved in the deadly Lion Air crash.

Boeing "also trails on deliveries of its high-margin MAX aircraft, which affect profit disproportionately, with the plane accounting for 37% of the total vs. guidance of 40-45%", Ferguson says.

Only a few days earlier, they had gone together to a bridal shop in Pangkal Pinang to select their wedding outfits, according to Indonesian media reports.

The system was created to prevent the jet from stalling, according to information provided by Boeing to airlines.


Lion Air is one of Indonesia's youngest airlines but has grown rapidly, flying to dozens of domestic and worldwide destinations. "Safety remains our top priority and is a core value for everyone at Boeing", the company said.

Boeing and the FAA last week issued directives to airlines to alert their pilots that they can resolve such a problem using an existing emergency procedure.

Boeing made modifications to the anti-stall system without informing air carriers and their crews, according to the Allied Pilots Association.

Two pilots unions have also lashed out at Boeing for failing to inform them about the potential risks of the feature.

Pilots claim in separate reports that Boeing failed to provide safety disclosures that might have prevented the disaster.

Pilots can stop this automated response by pressing two buttons if the system behaves unexpectedly, the directive said.

The couple decided on the photo shoot and the wedding dress just weeks before the ill fated Lion Air crashed in the sea of Jakarta.

Passengers on that flight told CNN that the plane experienced a significant drop in altitude shortly after takeoff.

The Strait Times reported that Pratama was a medical doctor at the Bakti Timah Hospital, where he met Syari who worked at the hospital's finance department.
