NEWS Boeing to discuss 737 safety with Russian officials

Representatives of Boeing plan to meet with Russia officials “to understand their concerns”, a spokesman has said following the withdrawal of flying certificates for its 737 jets. A statement by Russia’s Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC), dated 4 November, had said it was suspending flying certificates until it received notification that the planes were safe, but a spokesman for Rosaviatsya, the federal aviation agency, later said only it could ground planes.
