Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said Sunday at the Paris Air Show that his company made a “mistake” in dealing with problems associated with 737 Max jets before two crashes in a six-month span killed more than 300 passengers and crew members. The crashes involving an Ethiopian Airlines flight in March and a Lion Air crash in Indonesia in October 2018 were blamed on a faulty cockpit safety indicator. Although the Federal Aviation Administration and Boeing have both said the indicator is not vital to safety, the FAA blames Boeing for hiding the problem from airlines and regulators.
