At a conference in New York City on Wednesday, Boeing CEO, Dennis Muilenburg, expressed cautious optimism to critics of the company’s handling of the 737 MAX crisis, advising they are currently in the process of applying for final software certification.

Admitting the company has a long road ahead to restoring public confidence in Boeing, Muilenburg added, “we’re going to do everything we can to make sure the MAX is safe to fly.”

Muilenburg remains hopeful that the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will exercise its usual due diligence and swiftly approve the recently-completed software fix Boeing has retrofitted for the aircraft.
