The Boeing statement came a day after FAA director Dan Elwell told Congress that he awaited the manufacturer's final documentation to begin the new 737 MAX certification within a week. The 737 MAX 8 aircraft, as you all might remember, has been grounded since March after the crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 and Boeing has been under heavy fire since while taking monetary damages and facing investigations. While it is impossible to give exact reasons for this, it is likely that many airlines are holding out on ordering Boeing aircraft until the 737 MAX woes are solved, given the largely negative criticism the company has faced over its handling of the two fatal accidents of the 737 MAX 8.
On Thursday, Boeing said it had completed a software update for its 737 MAX jets and that is also submitting a plan on pilot training to the US Federal Aviation Administration.
In addition, Boeing said it has developed training and education materials that are under review by the FAA, global regulators and airline customers.
Last Sunday, the company said it was aware of a flawed safety feature with the 737 Max aircraft well before the deadly October 2018 Lion Aircrash, but considered it to be a premium add-on to the aeroplane and hence decided not to do anything about it.

Pilots are expected to undergo extra training on the new system once it receives certification. In the test flight was attended by the heads of the airline.
"We will not allow the 737 Max to fly in the U.S. unless it is absolutely safe to do so", Mr Elwell said.
"American Airlines is already on board, saying we're going to get those simulators and get more data and information, to the manufacturers, from the pilots where the maneuverability and controllability of the MCAS takes place", he added.
