Boeing Faces More Setbacks

Boeing Co. jumped after providing more detail on how the 737 Max will return to the skies -- even as the company backed away from earlier assurances that the grounded jet would win full regulatory approval by year-end.

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration is on track to certify redesigned flight-control software by mid-December, Boeing spokesman Gordon Johndroe said Monday in an email. That could enable the planemaker to begin shipping new jets that have been stashed across the Pacific Northwest and Texas during a flying ban imposed in March after two crashes killed 346 people.
