WASHINGTON, Jan 22 (Reuters) - Boeing chief executive Dave Calhoun told reporters on Wednesday the U.S. planemaker expects to resume 737 max production “months” before its forecasted mid-year return to service.
The company halted production in recent days after the best-selling 737 MAX was grounded in March after two deadly crashes in five months killed 346 people.
The company said Tuesday it now expects regulators to approve the plane’s return to service in the middle of the year.
