The Journal says the pilots' activities are still being assessed by researchers but might raise questions regarding assertions produced by Boeing and US labs in the aftermath of the next Max crash in October that pilots can regain control simply by following steps to turn off some specific anti-stall system. On Tuesday, investors will start to find out what it means for Boeing's bottom line.

Through February, Boeing reported it has delivered 376 Max jets worldwide since 2017. While CFM, like Spirit, has said it would not decrease the production rate for the Leap-1B engine, Jefferies analyst Sandy Morris said that decision could be revisited if 737 Max aircraft aren't flying again globally by the end of September.

"Our analysis shows the cut positions Boeing to generate zero cash in 2019 if deliveries don't resume, protecting its financial health and ratings".

Managing Director Ronald Epstein said the reputational loss from the crisis threatens to hurt the company's bargaining power as it negotiates with airlines, according to CNBC.

Last week, the family of Samya Stumo, a 24-year-old health-care analyst who was on assignment in Ethiopia, sued Boeing.

"Airlines generally lose their deposits if they cancel orders and Airbus does not have the capacity to ramp up production significantly in the short term to replace canceled Boeing orders".

Investigations are ongoing and the FBI recently joined a criminal investigation into the certification of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 airplanes. That's a far cry from the company's bullish 2017 and 2018, when it tended to lead major indices.

The lawsuit alleges that Boeing failed to inform pilots of the dangers and risks of a new automated anti-stall system known as MCAS.

Boeing is reducing its production of the 737 Max to 42 per month, 10 less than its original target. He noted that he expects the grounding to last six months, and that the company's margins could be affected by penalties charged by airlines. They remained grounded for three months. He said he now predicts it will take Boeing until 2021 to catch up on promised aircraft deliveries. Boeing Max is a popular airplane model across the globe.

An American Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 flight from Los Angeles approaches for landing at Reagan National Airport shortly after an announcement was made by the FAA that the planes were being grounded by the United States in Washington, US March 13, 2019. Cowen aerospace analyst Cai von Rumohr said he now believes Boeing won't be able to make deliveries to U.S. airlines - American, Southwest Airlines and United Airlines - until June.
