Boeing Conducts 500 Test Flights of 737 Max Jets in Effort to Regain Trust

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said Monday that the company has conducted almost 500 test flights with a new software update to its grounded 737 Max planes that he hopes will help win back the confidence of the flying public.

“We know that trust has been damaged over the last few months, and we own that and we are working hard to re-earn that trust going forward,” Muilenburg said in an interview at the Global Business Travel Association conference in Chicago. He said the company has focused on updating software to make the Boeing 737 Max as safe as possible.

The planes have been grounded worldwide since mid-March after two crashes within five months of one another claimed 346 lives.
