There are about 400 MAX jets in service worldwide, inc

cluding about 97 in China. Wall Street analysts expect Boeing to spend about $1 billion to upda

te and install new software worldwide to prevent the MCAS system from repeatedly pointing the nose of the plane dow

n and to prevent the system from being activated by only one of two exterior sensors.

In the interview with the news website Axios, Muilenburg re

fused to say the MCAS system was a “red flag” during the MAX’s six

-year development and certification process. He said there were a “number of factors” involved in the fatal crashes.

Earlier this month, Muilenburg said he expected some MAX jets to return to commercia

l service by the end of the summer, but it could be months before the worldwide fleet returns to the air. Boeing said it has completed the software update for the MCAS syst

em and has tested it on 207 flights totaling 360 hours. The US Federal Aviation Administration has not said when its review of the updated software will be completed.

The US House of Representatives on Thursday passed the Senate’s version of the emergency border funding bill after House Speak

er Nancy Pelosi reversed course amid pressure from moderate Democrats to tackle the migrant surge along the US-Mexico border immediately.

The Democrat-controlled House voted 305 to 102. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said President Donald Trump supports the Senate bill.

“In order to get resources to the children fastest, we will reluctantly pass the Senate bill,” Pelosi wrote in a statement before the Thursday voting.

“The children come first,” Pelosi said. “At the end of the day, we have to make sure that the resources needed to protect the children are available.”

The sudden setback for Pelosi came amid heavy pressure from moderate Democrati

c lawmakers who are seen as most vulnerable at the 2020 U.S. general elections, local analysts said.

House Representative Josh Gottheimer, a Democratic leader of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, told Pelosi Thur

sday morning that he had rallied enough moderate Democrats to take down the rule on the amended House bill.
