In one message, an employee is quoted as saying the Max was “designed by clowns, who are in turn supervised by monkeys.”

In another exchange, while discussing the simulators used during the design of the aircraft, one Boeing employee asked another “Would you put your family on a Max simulator trained aircraft? I wouldn’t” to which the recipient responded “no.”




“We regret the content of these communications, and apologize to the FAA, Congress, our airline customers, and to the flying public for them. We have made significant changes as a company to enhance our safety processes, organizations, and culture,” Boeing said of the messages.




“While the tone and content of some of the language contained in the documents is disappointing, the FAA remains focused on following a thorough process for returning the Boeing 737 MAX to passenger service,” the aviation bod said.

“We continue to work with other international aviation safety regulators to review the proposed changes to the aircraft.”
