Boeing temporarily cuts back on 737 Max plane manufacturing

International

Boeing is cutting back on making more 737 Max airplanes, but says the move is only temporary.

The aircraft are being scrutinized after 346 people died in two crashes.

 A preliminary report of last month’s crash appeared to point to a possible problem with the plane’s anti-stall system.

All of the 737 Max planes have been grounded since that crash.

The change in production rate is expected to happen in mid-April.
