Boeing to meet with US airlines over 737 MAXThe US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced Thursday it would meet with American commercial airlines that use the Boeing 737 MAX, which has been grounded worldwide since mid-March following two accidents that killed 346 people.

One of Europe's Largest Airlines Is Changing Gates for Erdogan

One of Europe's Largest Airlines Is Changing Gates for ErdoganThe move — a 45-hour sprint slated to end at midnight on Saturday — is a massive undertaking, involving transporting more than 1,000 tons of equipment every hour from the 1950s-era Ataturk hub to the giant new airport, which occupies an area larger than Manhattan.

Turkish Airlines plans to wind down services at its old base, with the last flight departing for Singapore at 2 a.m. local time on Saturday.
