WASHINGTON D.C. — Now US regulators are demanding Boeing make modifications to improve the aircraft, reports Al Jazeera. The US Federal Aviation Administration is demanding Boeing make improvements to :) anti-stalling software and the aircrafts' maneuvering system. The FAA has given Boeing until the end of April to finalize the improvements. In an open letter to civil aviation authorities, the FAA stated that Boeing is also updating training requirements and flight crew manuals to go with the new updates to the maneuvering system. These updates include changes to the airplane flight manual, flight crew operations manual and airplane maintenance manual. According to CNN, some airlines are temporarily suspending 737 MAX 8s from flying following last Sunday's crash. These include airlines from China, Singapore, Indonesia, Mexican airline Aeromexico, Argentine airline Aerolíneas Argentinas, Cayman Airways and Comair Airways.
