As per reports, Boeing’s (BA) 737 Max planes have reported an electrical fault on a specific group of jets. The company informed that the “production issue” does not affect its entire fleet and 16 operators have been asked to halt operations involving the jet until the issue is addressed.
Boeing is working alongside the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on the issue and confirmed it was not related to the flight-control system that had grounded its planes previously.
“The recommendation is being made to allow for verification that a sufficient ground path exists for a component of the electrical power system,” Boeing stated.
Airlines including Southwest, American, and United said they had taken more than 60 planes out of service following the notice from Boeing. The issue is believed to affect about 90 planes globally, as per the Bloomberg report.
