US plane maker Boeing has said that it’s profits fell by 20% for the first quarter of this year, with recent air crash involving one of it’s planes.
The Ethiopian airlines recorded a devastating air crash in March when a Boeing 737-Max plane crashed enroute to Nairobi, Kenya.
There were more than 30 different nationalities on board the Ethiopian airliner that crashed shortly after taking off from Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa.
Details of the first report of investigations into the crash showed that pilots of the jet followed all procedures but were unable to take control of the plane.
Following the crash concerns quickly emerged about the Boeing 737 Max. That led to a global grounding of the plane.
Boeing is also facing some law suits from families of some of those killed in the crash.
The company has now cut down on its profits forecast for the rest of 2019 as it hopes to regain the confidence of clients.
The jet producer has now redesigned its software to disable MCAS. Boeing is also to install an extra warning system on all 737 Max jets.
There would be revised training for pilots to “enhanced understanding of the 737 MAX” flight system and crew procedures.
