Reuters reports that on Thursday, the FAA “distanced itself...from suggestions by Boeing that its grounded 737 MAX could resume flying passengers in October.” FAA Acting Administrator Dan Elwell told reporters at the EAA AirVenture air show, “We don’t have a timeline. Don’t have October. Don’t have August. Don’t have 2021.” Elwell asserted, “We have one criteria. When the 737 MAX has been – when the complications to it have been satisfactorily assessed, and the MAX is safe to return to service, that’s the only criteria.” (Image: Boeing 737-MAX 8 planes are parked Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2018, near Boeing Co.'s 737 assembly facility in Renton, WA.
