Over 310 Boeing 737 jets reportedly contain 148 potentially defective parts and may need to be replaced.
This statement was made by the Federal Aviation Administration on Sunday.
It serves as a safety warning that comes as the Chicago-based manufacturer continues to work to try to lift an international grounding of its recent update to the fleet.
According to the FAA; “The affected parts may be susceptible to premature failure or cracks resulting from the improper manufacturing process.”
Boeing in a statement said; “It has not been informed of any in-service issues” related to the equipment.
The CEO of Boeing’s Commercial Airplane Division said the company is committed to supporting its customers in every way possible as they identify and replace the potentially non-conforming tracks.
