Boeing cancels airline call on 737 MAX systems: sources

CHICAGO (Reuters) – Boeing Co (BA.N) has canceled a conference call it had scheduled for Tuesday morning with airlines to discuss systems on the 737 MAX model that crashed in Indonesia last month, two sources familiar with the matter said.

Boeing was not immediately available to comment and it was not clear whether the call was being rescheduled.

The U.S. aircraft manufacturer has faced scrutiny by regulators and pilots over the first major accident involving the 737 MAX, the latest version of its popular narrow-body plane.

All 189 people on board a 737 MAX operated by Lion Air died when the jet crashed into the Java Sea on Oct. 29.

An investigation is still underway, but questions have arisen about the role that a new emergency system on the jet, designed to prevent the 737 MAX from stalling, may have played in the crash.
