Two Boeing 737 MAX aircraft crashed over the past 12 months — the first in Indonesia in October 2018 and the second in Ethiopia in March of this year. The second tragedy led to global aviation authorities and air carriers grounding the 737 MAX series aircraft and closing airspace to the plane.

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said Monday that it continues to follow a process not a timeline, as it seek to return the aircraft to passenger service, adding that "each government will make its own decision to return the aircraft to service, based on a thorough safety assessment".

According to the statement, "the FAA has a transparent and collaborative relationship with other civil aviation authorities as we continue our review of changes to software on the Boeing 737 MAX".

Meanwhile, Boeing's attempts to repair defects in the aircraft's software are taking longer than expected, and the company does not expect the planes to be declared safe to fly by US or other regulators until November at the earliest. 

Indonesian experts found that design and oversight lapses were the main reasons for last year's deadly crash of a Lion Air Boeing 737 MAX, media reported, citing sources familiar with a final report. Among other factors that led to the catastrophe were a series of pilot errors and maintenance mistakes, The Wall Street Journal reported. A Boeing representative told The Wall Street Journal that the company assisted Indonesian authorities in drafting the report.

The deadly crash of the Lion Air Boeing 737 MAX 8 took place in Indonesia on 29 October 2018, killing all 189 people on board. The plane, headed for the city of Pangkal Pinang on the Indonesian island of Bangka, lost contact with air traffic control 13 minutes after taking off from Jakarta and fell into the sea.
