The stock of Boeing jumped 3.7 % on Monday after comments from a key executive at the planemaker over the weekend suggested that the company's 787 Dreamliner and 737 Max ambitions may soon be history.
Ihssane Mounir, the company's senior vice president of commercial sales and marketing, told a major Newswire that the 787's deliveries are about to resume. The Dreamliner is Boeing's most technologically sophisticated wide-body aircraft. For the majority of this year, deliveries have been delayed so that the company can address quality issues and receive regulatory approval for its clients to fly them again.
According to Mounir, Boeing is in talks with Chinese regulators about re-certifying the single-aisle 737 Max workhorse. It plans to resume Max handovers in the first quarter, according to Chief Executive Officer Dave Calhoun.
According to A major newswire, China's Civil Aviation Administration has alerted airlines that design tweaks suggested by Boeing could address safety concerns. According to the news agency, airlines are required to offer feedback on a proposed airworthiness rule by November 26.
Boeing makes a lot of money with the narrow-body plane. About a year after U.S. regulators approved the company's proposed flight-computer modifications following two fatal crashes, the world's second-largest economy has left them grounded.
