Norwegian one of first airlines to take delivery of new plane
Boeing says it is grounding all flights of its new single-aisle 737 MAX due to worries over a manufacturing quality issue inside its engines. The first delivery was expected to take place this month, and Boeing insists it is sticking to this schedule.
“Out of an abundance of caution, we decided to temporarily suspend MAX flights,” the company said in a statement. “The step is consistent with our priority focus on safety for all who use and fly our products.”
The plane maker is inspecting the core of each advanced Leap-1B engine, which have been made by CFM International, a joint venture between General Electric and France’s Safran.
Norwegian is one of the first airlines to take delivery of the 737 MAX, to debut the aircraft on June 15. A spokesman for the airline commented: “We know that [the issue] will result in a few days delay of the first MAX delivery to Norwegian.”
