Boeing may reimburse airlines for 737 MAX grounding

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said on Wednesday that the aircraft manufacturer

上海千花坊is having “ongoing conversations” with airlines about possible reimbursements following the worldwide grounding of 737 MAX jets.

The airlines haven’t disclosed how much they are seeking from Boeing, but some analysts peg industrywide losses at about $1 billion. In an interview with Axios, Muilenb上海千花坊

urg didn’t say how Boeing would compensate airlines, but it could be cash, a discount on future orders or additional pilot training and services.

Airlines seeking compensation include Air China, China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Norwegian Air, Turkish Air, Ryanair, Flydubai and United Airlines.上海千花坊品茶微信

“Reimbursement isn’t a technical problem,” John Cochran, president of Eaglemark, an aviation con

sulting firm and professor emeritus of Aerospace Engineering at Auburn University, told China Daily USA. “It’s a matter of first imp

ression. Some of what Boeing proposes to do may be contractual and it’s certainly sound public relations. Boeing wants to keep its customers happy.”上海千花坊

The 10,000-member pilots union for Southwest Airlines said this month it will ask B

oeing  for compensation to cover legal costs and lost income for pilots due to the 737 MAX grounding.

上海千花坊品茶微信The union hasn’t said how much pilots have lost, but it could be as much as $9 million a month, the Dallas Morning News reported.

Southwest has 34 MAX jets in its fleet. The airline said it plans to resume MAX flights on Sept

2, but the union said “there is no accurate estimate of when the MAX will return to service.”

上海千花坊品茶微信Airlines have used other planes when possible to replace grounded MAX jets, but some flights have been canceled. The airlines appa

rently seek compensation for lost revenue as well as storage and the cost of preparing the MAX to return to c

ommercial service when the US Federal Aviation Administration and other regulators say it’s safe to fly.

Boeing MAX jets were grounded worldwide following crashes March 10 in Ethiopi

a and October 29, 2018, in Indonesia that killed a total of 346 passengers and crew.

Preliminary investigations suggest the aircraft’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), an automated anti-stall device, apparently fo

rced the noses of Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines flights down and into a fatal plunge when it erroneously deter

mined the planes were about to stall. To avoid a stall, MCAS points the nose of the plane down to gain air speed.

The Institute for Fiscal Studies warned that his plans wou

The foreign secretary, Hunt, has proposed reducing the rate of corporation tax paid b

More than 1,000 items of military equipment including some of the most advanced weapons and concepts are being exhibited at the Army-2019 Military an

d Technical Forum this week in Kubinka, Russia, a city about 60 kilometers west of Moscow.上海会所品茶微信

More than 1,500 enterprises and organizations are in attendance at the show, which features nearly 27,000 products and technologies. It will last until Sunday.

“This year we’ve invited delegations from over 100 countries to take part in ARMY-2019. Official meetings will be held with 70 of them on the sidelines of the forum. … The level o

上海会所品茶微信f representation of partner countries is quite high this year: Over 30 of them are headed by defense ministers, their deputies and chiefs of the general st

aff,” said Sergey Chemezov, CEO of Rostec, Russia’s state-owned company that specializes in the defenses and military high-tech industries.

Paul Johnson, director of the IFS, said cutting corporation tax, and another promise made by H上海会所品茶微信

unt to raise defense spending, would “leave no scope to relieve the pressure on other areas of pub上海会所

lic spending without tax rises, or a fiscal stance which risked putting debt on a rising path”.

Both Conservative leadership contenders announced this week they will bring down the barriers to talented overseas workers.

Johnson said he would make the UK “much more open” to high-skilled migrants such as scientists, while Hunt prom

ised to scrap the immigration target of keeping net migration below 100,000, which has never been met.

Hunt said: “We’re not going to be a country that changes from Little Britain int

o Little England and pulls down the shutters and says ‘Foreigners not welcome’.”

The G20 nations must lead by example on this imperative, Stern said, and especially the world’s two biggest economies, the US and China.

“China is demonstrating leadership through its significant investments in zero-carbon energy, particularly rene

Stern also noted that China can provide even greater leadership through the Belt and Road Initiative if it e

In a news conference on Tuesday afternoon, Vice-Minister of Com

The two-day meeting was attended by about 500 delegates, including more than 80 ministerial officials from 53 African countries and the African Union.

State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said at the opening ceremony that Beijing’s coop

Such attempts constitute a total lack of respect for Africa, a lack of understan

Iranian Minister of Inform上海千花坊女神会所munications Techn

hnology Moham上海千花坊女神会所mad Javad Azari Jahromi also decried US cyber attacks on

Iran over the past years, saying that “We have been facing cyber-terrorism for a long time.”

Earlier this month, the United States claimed Iran is responsible for an attack on two oil

tankers in the Gulf of Oman. The accusation was dismissed by the Islamic Republic.

Over the accusation, Zarif has said the United States immediately jumped to make allegat

ions against Iran was a plan to use sabotage diplomacy to cover up its economic terrorism against Iran.

Following the attack on the oil tankers, the Pentagon authorized the d

eployment of about 1,000 additional troops to the region for so-called “defensive purpose.”

This was preceded by the deployment of the Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier group, bo

mbers, the amphibious transport dock and Patriot air defense system to the region in early May.
