The announcement to chop manufacturing got here at some point after Boeing acknowledged one other software program concern that wants fixing on its 737 Max jets.

Boeing spokesman Charles Bickers on Friday referred to as it a “comparatively minor concern” and mentioned the aircraft maker already has a repair within the works. 

He added that the most recent concern was not a part of the flight-control software program Boeing has been working to improve for months.
