Exclusive: Boeing eyes Lion Air crash software upgrade in 6-8 weeks

Exclusive: Boeing eyes Lion Air crash software upgrade in 6-8 weeksSEATTLE/PARIS (Reuters) – Boeing Co is weighing plans to launch a software upgrade for its 737 MAX in six to eight weeks that would help address a scenario faced by the Lion Air crew during last month’s deadly crash in Indonesia, two people briefed on the matter said on Thursday. Crash investigators are focusing on the possibility that a new anti-stall system that repeatedly pushed the Lion Air jetliner’s nose down was being fed by erroneous data from a faulty sensor left in place after a previous hazardous flight. Boeing has said cockpit procedures that were applied on the previous flight are already in place to tackle such a problem, and that its 737 series remains safe to fly.
