U.S. aviation regulators plan to meet with airlines and pilot unions on Friday to discuss safety issues on Boeing Co.’s grounded 737 Max aircraft.

The meeting, which will include representatives of the three American carriers that fly the model, is part of the Federal Aviation Administration’s review of the plane’s safety, the agency said in a statement. The FAA is working with Boeing as it develops a software upgrade and proposes to increase the level of training that 737 Max pilots must receive.
