Boeing suspends deliveries of 737 MAX aircraft, production to continue

US aerospace giant Boeing is suspending deliveries of its top-selling 737 MAX aircraft following a second deadly crash, but production of the planes will continue, a company spokesman told AFP.

“We are pausing the delivery of the 737 MAX until we come up with a solution,” the spokesman said. “We are going to continue the production but we are assessing our capacities.”

The crash of an Ethiopian Airlines flight on Sunday, which killed 157 people, led governments worldwide to ban the planes until the cause is determined.
