Boeing withheld info on model of plane involved in Indonesia crash

A Boeing 737 MAX airplane being built for Shenzhen Airlines is worked on next to the runway at the Renton Municipal Airport

Dr. Rio Nanda Pratama, was Intan Syari's fiancé who was among 189 people who were killed when the Boeing 737 crashed on October 29 shortly after taking off from Jakarta. "The bulletin is not re-affirming, it's enlightening and adding new info".

The manual did not tell pilots that, when the plane's computer detects the aircraft is in a stall, it automatically triggers a response, such as lowering the airpane's nose, to prevent or exit the stall.

Boeing has acknowledged that the Indonesian Airline had informed the company of inaccurate instrument readings.

Boeing's financial guidance is "at risk after it delivered only 57 airplanes and 43 737s in October", compared to the 72 737s per month the company needs to meet its 2018 build rate, says Bloomberg Intelligence analyst George Ferguson.

Investigators said the jet experienced problems on its last four flights - including, crucially, the flight that crashed, according to Soerjanto Tjahjono, the head of the National Transportation Safety Committee (KNKT).

The 737-MAX in question had only begun service for Lion Air in August. Boeing also said pilots were unlikely to encounter MCAS intervention during their normal flying.

"We value our partnership with Boeing, but were unaware of some of the functionality of the Manoeuvring Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS) installed on the MAX 8", an American Airlines spokesman said.

Two pilots' unions in the United States have said that the potential risks of a particular feature on the 737 MAX were not specified to them during training.

U.S. aviation safety experts and pilots associations say Boeing didn't tell them about a new flight-control system on 737 MAX aircraft, a sensor which Indonesian officials think could be involved in the deadly Lion Air crash.

An American pilot who also requested anonymity said the plane ideally should require more than one sensor to display a stall before reacting.

Investors and analysts watch the number of planes Boeing turns over to airlines and leasing firms as customers pay the bulk of the money for new planes on delivery.

"This airplane went through thousands of hours of tests and evaluations, certification, working with the pilots, and we've been very transparent on providing information and being fully cooperative on the investigative activity".

Other major customers for the 737 MAX include FlyDubai with 7 in operation out of an order of 251, Jet Airways with a fleet of 5 out of a total of 220 on order and Lion Air who had received 13 of their order of 201. "This has not changed", the FAA said.

The Allied Pilots Association rejected Boeing's assertion that a safety bulletin issued last week was meant to reinforce procedures already in the 737 MAX flight manual.

So far, only the plane's flight data recorder has been recovered.

Boeing told airlines in a briefing around a week after the crash that this situation, where the AOA sensor pushed the plane down, could end in a crash, an aviation safety expert with knowledge of the briefing told The Wall Street Journal. "This is important systems information that pilots should know about".
