Boeing To Upgrade Software In 737 MAX 8 Fleet In 'Weeks'

Boeing has confirmed that it will deploy a software upgrade to the 737 MAX 8.

This comes a few hours after the Federal Aviation Administration said it would mandate “design changes” in the aircraft by April.

Boeing did not reference Sunday’s Ethiopian Airlines crash in connection to the software upgrade.

Reuters reports, the statement did express the company’s condolences to the relatives of the 157 people who died, however.
