Boeing to upgrade software in 737 MAX 8 fleet in 'weeks'
Updated : March 12, 2019 01:23 PM IST
Boeing did not reference Sunday's Ethiopian Airlines crash in connection to the software upgrade. The statement did express the company's condolences to the relatives of the 157 people who died, however.
The company said in the aftermath of October's Lion Air Flight crash it has for several months "been developing a flight control software enhancement for the 737 MAX, designed to make an already safe aircraft even safer."
