Boeing, regulators and airlines are cautiously optimistic a conclusion to the grounding of the 737 MAX is realistically — and finally — in sight. That sets the stage for the jet's return to flying around September at the earliest.
All of this is happening while simultaneously plotting further long-term safety improvements to the aircraft to assuage regulator concerns, including adding systems to the MAX that were previously rejected during the jet's initial development.
While a clear path to re-certification has emerged, those close to the process caution that there are still potential pitfalls that may extend the multinational process for re-approving the Boeing jet again for service after it was grounded in March 2019 after two crashes killed 346 people.
