Boeing's Probe Into 737 MAX Electrical Issues Expands

Inspections of Boeing (NYSE: BA) 737 MAX jets grounded last week have reportedly turned up additional potential electrical issues, raising questions about the scale and size of a potential fix. Boeing on April 8 requested that about 60 737 MAX jets be grounded temporarily to address potential electrical system problems in the jets, a move that impacted 16 airlines, including Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV), American Airlines Group (NASDAQ: AAL), and United Airlines Holdings (NASDAQ: UAL). Boeing, according to an Aviation Week report, has since discovered the issues extend beyond the area originally flagged.
