The Associated Press Published 10:04 AM EDT Jun 15, 2019 ISTANBUL (AP) — Passengers on a Turkish Airlines jetliner flying to Sudan had to subdue a man who started screaming a few minutes after takeoff and began smashing at an oxygen mask box and then a cabin window, before pushing flight attendants aside and rushing toward the cockpit. Associated Press photographer Hussein Malla was on the flight Friday and says several passengers stopped the man in the Boeing 737-900′s business class section. Flight attendants calmed the man down after about 15 minutes and he was taken back to a seat as the plane continued toward Khartoum. Flight attendants said the man was complaining about not being able to breathe. After about 2½ hours, the pilots announced the plane was returning to Istanbul.

Chris Woodyard USA TODAY Published 10:27 AM EDT May 16, 2019 The chief of the Federal Aviation Administration expressed concern Wednesday that it took more than a year before his agency learned that Boeing disclosed it had a problematic cockpit warning alert in its 737 Max jetliners. Non-functioning cockpit warning lights are one of the key issues being examined in the probes of two Max 8 crashes that killed everyone on board. But even if it had reviewed the information sooner, the FAA deemed the warning indicator not to be critical to flight safety, said Acting Administrator Daniel Elwell. In fact, he said he didn't think the indicator would have saved either of the two 737 Max jetliners that crashed months apart from destruction. A total of 346 people died.

Dawn Gilbertson USA TODAY Published 2:48 AM EDT Apr 7, 2019 Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg made a bold promise to travelers Thursday. When the grounded Boeing 737 Max planes return to the skies after a software fix due within weeks, they will be "among the safest planes ever to fly,'' he said. "We remain confident in the fundamental safety of the 737 Max,'' Muilenburg said in a video accepting blame for Boeing's role in two fatal Max 8 crashes in five months. Skittish travelers will likely need more convincing, presenting a major challenge to airlines including Southwest, American and United when the planes return to their flight schedules. Already, some are questioning Boeing's confidence in the plane. "737 Max is a super safe aircraft as long as it's on the ground,'' one Twitter user responded after Muilenburg posted a snippet of his video Thursday. Another said, "I won't ride in a plane that requires special … [Read more...] about Boeing 737 Max 8: Will skittish passengers return?
