The Federal Aviation Administration has ordered Boeing to fix a newly discovered software issue in its 737 Max aircraft before allowing it to fly.




Boeing officials reportedly described the new software problem as "relatively minor," and said it was unrelated to the anti-stall system that is being investigated after two 737 Max crashes.




Officials with knowledge of the FAA's probe said the fix for this new problem is essential for safety.



The Federal Aviation Administration has ordered Boeing to fix a newly discovered software issue in its 737 Max aircraft before allowing it to fly, according to a Washington Post report published on Thursday.
Boeing officials reportedly described the new software problem as "relatively minor," and said it was unrelated to the anti-stall system that is being investigated after two deadly 737 Max crashes happened just months apart. Nevertheless, officials with knowledge of the FAA's probe said the fix is essential for safety.
Three-hundred and forty-six passengers and crew members were killed after two 737 Max aircraft — Lion Air Flight 610 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 — crashed within a span of five months. The aircraft has been grounded in the US and many other countries.
