Washington – President Donald Trump urged Boeing to “rebrand” its 737 MAX aircraft, after the fatal crashes of the 737 MAX 8 aircraft in Indonesia and Ethiopia. The aircraft manufacturer rejected Trump’s advice and said it was focused on fixing the problem and thinking over next steps to win back public trust.
President Trump adviced Boeing in a Twitter post that he tweeted earlier this week. A Boeing spokesman said rebuilding public trust was their focus, with pilots playing a main role.
“Pilots’ confidence in the aircraft will lead passengers and crew to have greater confidence in the aircraft,” Gordon Johndroe – Boeing’s Vice President for communications – told Reuters.
