American Airlines has said the economic impact of the grounded Max would be about US$350 million between its worldwide grounding in mid-March and August 19, when the airline initially envisioned flying the jets again.

Ahead of the recertification of the Boeing 737 Max Aircraft grounded globally following the plane's involvement in two fatal crashes killing over 500 people, the Ethiopian Airlines says it will be the last to operate the aircraft when the ban is lifted.

"It is not possible to advance an exact date while working on security solutions for the aircraft "said Ali Bahrami, a partner administrator for aviation security for the United States regulator, in an interview during an aviation security conference in Cologne, Germany".

Nearly a month after Boeing finished a software update for its 737 Max aircraft, it's still unclear when the plane will return to service.

"Boeing is now providing additional information to address Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requests that include detail on how pilots interact with the airplane controls and displays in different flight scenarios", the representative said.

Marineland in Niagara Falls, Ont., and the Vancouver Aquarium in B.C. are the only two places that now keep captive cetaceans. The bill also changes the Criminal Code , creating new animal cruelty offences related to the captivity of cetaceans.

Neither Boeing nor the Federal Aviation Administration has given a clear, public indication of when the 737 Max will receive approval to resume making commercial flights in the U.S.

The Max 737, described as the most environmentally friendly and fuel efficient in the family of the Boeing 737, was grounded following the Ethiopian Airline's crash from Addis Ababa to Nairobi, Kenya in April.

When asked if he believed the 737 Max would resume flight before the end of the year, Muilenburg said, "I do, but again, I can't give you the specific timeline on it".

American Airlines Group Inc. said on Sunday it was extending cancellations of about 115 daily flights into September due to the grounding. Together, both tragedies left 346 dead.

The management of the issue by Boeing and the revelation that it maintained close relations with the FAA caused a crisis of confidence between American companies and the public, the pilots and a part of the world civil aviation regulation agencies.
