American Airlines trims first-quarter forecast for unit revenue

Oman Air cancels 30 more flights

China was the first country to ground Boeing 737 MAX 8 jets following the Ethiopian Airlines crash on March 10, which killed all 157 people on board. The US aircraft manufacturer even received zero new orders in March for the 737 MAX, with total orders for the first quarter halving to 95 aircraft, compared to 180 a years earlier.

In this Monday, April 8, 2019, file photo, a worker looks up at a parked Boeing 737 Max 8 built for Jet Airways as another 737 Max 8 made for Shenzhen Airlines stands behind at a Boeing Co. production facility in Renton, Wash.

The focus of the crash investigations is the plane's automatic safety system, for which Boeing says it is developing a software fix.

The household a Minnesota man who died when an Ethiopian Airlines airplane crashed last month has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Boeing, the maker of the 737 Max aircraft which was included in the wreck and is now being investigated by USA prosecutors.

Several analysts have trimmed their Boeing profit forecasts in light of the MAX grounding. He graduated in University of Nice Sophia Antipolis in Nice, France and worked in aviation industry for dozen of year.

Boeing also halted deliveries and announced last week that it was scaling back production of the 737 Max.

It's up to Kim, he said, adding, "President Moon will do what's necessary". But at this moment, we're talking about the big deal. You could work out, step-by-step, pieces.

Deliveries are financially important to plane makers because that's when airlines pay most of the money.

Investigators are still probing the cause of the Ethiopian crash, as well as the other Max crash involving a Lion Air jet last October. A total of 346 passengers and crew died in the crashes.

China confirmed on Tuesday it would join the review, whileCanada, the United Arab Emirates, and Singapore previously said that they would join the panel.

Because it is still unclear when the MAX jets will begin flying again, American said it can not yet forecast the cost of the disruption beyond the first quarter.

Since the Boeing 737 Max 8 was grounded in the U.S. on 13 March, American Airlines has cut 1,200 flights and has extended cancellations through its second quarter to 30 June, which will affect about 90 flights a day.
