Data from the jetliner that crashed into the Java Sea last month shows the pilots fought to save the plane almost from the moment it took off, as the Boeing 737s nose was repeatedly forced down, apparently by an automatic system receiving incorrect sensor readings.

Boeing is weighing plans to launch a software upgrade for its 737 MAX in six to eight weeks that would help address a scenario faced by the Lion Air crew during last month’s deadly crash in Indonesia, two people briefed on the matter said on Thursday.

“Regardless of the outcome, we’re going to learn from this accident and continue to improve our safety record,” Muilenburg told employees in an internal memo.

It appears that people who are suing Boeing might have a case....

 

But I think Lion Air will bear most responsibility.

Lion Air ponders cancelling Boeing jets in row over crash

 

PARIS/JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesia’s Lion Air is reviewing airplane purchases from Boeing Co and has not ruled out cancelling orders as relations worsen in a spat over responsibility for a 737 jetliner crash that killed 189 people in late October.

 

Co-founder Rusdi Kirana is furious over what he regards as attempts by Boeing to deflect attention from recent design changes and blame Lion Air for the crash, while the airline faces scrutiny over its maintenance record and pilots’ actions.
 
Kirana is examining the possibility of cancelling remaining orders of Boeing jets “from the next delivery,” according to a person familiar with his thinking. Another source close to the airline said it was looking at cancelling orders.
 
No final decision has been made, but discussion over the fate of $22 billion of remaining orders highlights the stakes surrounding an investigation involving Boeing’s fastest-ever selling jet, the 737 MAX, which entered service last year.
 
Lion Air has 190 Boeing jets worth $22 billion at list prices waiting to be delivered, on top of 197 already taken, making it one of the largest U.S. export customers.

Didn't they say that the practice at Lion Air is questionable?

Especially the way they handle the defective item and allow it to fly soon after replacement being fitted onto the aircraft?
