Boeing has apologised for communications released to US Congress and the Federal Aviation Administration in which its employees called designers of the 737 MAX "clowns supervised by monkeys".
The statements were made in instant messages released as part of an investigation into two deadly crashes involving the aircraft.
Boeing says the comments are unacceptable and do not raise any new safety concerns.
Matthew Driskill is the editor of Asian Aviation. He joins us on Skype from Singapore to discuss these latest updates. Boeing found "previously unreported concerns" with the wiring that helps control the tail of the 737 Max. Since March, Boeing's 737 Max airplanes have been grounded and it has cost the US gross domestic product to grow a half a percentage less than expected. While Boeing's problems could slow U.S. economic growth to 2.5%, the FAA also announced new fines against Boeing last week for $5.4 million over allegations that it wrongly told the agency that defective wing parts were safe to use on its 737 Max jets. RT America's Sayeh Tavangar joins Scottie Nell Hughes to explain.
