Boeing boss admits mistake before two deadly crashes killed 346 people
The CEO of Boeing has admitted the company made a mistake in handling the problematic cockpit warning system in its 737 Max jets before two deadly crashes.
Chief executive Dennis Muilenburg told reporters in Paris on Sunday that Boeings communication was not consistent and that was unacceptable.
The US Federal Aviation Administration has blamed Boeing for not telling regulators for more than a year that a safety indicator in the Max cockpit did not work.
Pilots are angry the company did not tell them about the new software that has been implicated in the crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia, in which 346 people died.
Mr Muilenburg promised transparency as Boeing tried to get the grounded model back in flight.
