URGENT Head of Boeing's 737 MAX program to retire: company memo
New York, July 11, 2019 (AFP) - The head of the embattled 737 MAX program
plans to retire, Boeing said Thursday, as the company gears up to persuade
regulators to return the plane to service after two deadly crashes.
Eric Lindbland, who has led the Boeing program since August 2018, will step
down and work with his successors on a transition, Commercial Airplanes
President Kevin McAllister said in a staff memo. The 737 MAX has been grounded
since mid-March following two crashes that claimed 346 lives.
