Boeing faces new hurdle in 737 MAX electrical grounding issue — sources

SEATTLE/WASHINGTON/CHICAGO — US air safety officials have asked Boeing Co. to supply fresh analysis and documentation showing numerous 737 MAX subsystems would not be affected by electrical grounding issues first flagged in three areas of the jet in April, two people familiar with the matter told Reuters.

The extra analysis injects new uncertainty over the timing of when Boeing’s best-selling jetliner would be cleared to fly by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The electrical problems have suspended nearly a quarter of its 737 MAX fleet.

US airlines have said they expected Boeing to release the service bulletins as soon as this week that would allow them to make fixes and soon return the planes to service, but this latest issue will likely push that timeline back.

“We continue to work closely with the FAA and our customers to address the ground path issue in affected 737s,” a Boeing spokeswoman Read the rest

NEDA pushes for reopening of economy once virus surge subsides

The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) said on Saturday there is a need to safely reopen the economy once the surge in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) infections starts to subside in order to restore jobs.

“To accelerate job creation this year, a three-pronged strategy is advocated. First, the safe reopening of the economy immediately after this present spike, while still strictly adhering to public health protocols and intensifying the ‘prevent, detect, isolate, treat and recover’ strategies,” Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Karl Kendrick T. Chua during the government’s Jobs Summit that was held to mark Labor Day.

Mr. Chua said managing the risks and economic shocks of the coronavirus pandemic is key to improving current labor market conditions.

The number of jobless Filipinos increased to 4.187 million in February from 3.953 million in January, based on latest official data. This is equivalent to 8.8{87890dc1d933c52ccc13a444df81fd446339ba2106dac001aae390a0afd706af} unemployment rate in February, against the 8.7{87890dc1d933c52ccc13a444df81fd446339ba2106dac001aae390a0afd706af} … Read the rest
