Washington DC – The CEO of Boeing apologized to families of victims of two Boeing 737 MAX crashes last year. Dennis Muilenberg said “on behalf of myself and the Boeing company we are sorry, deeply and truly sorry.” He told the families he is heartbroken by their losses and said he’s committed to improving safety.
Washington Senator Maria Cantwell told the company execs she wants to know what went wrong with the jets and what’s being done to fix it. She said “one thing is crystal clear. If you want to be the leader in aviation manufacturing, you have to be the leader in aviation safety.”
It’s been exactly one year since a Lion Air Boeing 737 MAX crashed in Indonesia.
