Boeing may reimburse airlines for 737 MAX grounding

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said on Wednesday that the aircraft manufacturer

上海千花坊is having “ongoing conversations” with airlines about possible reimbursements following the worldwide grounding of 737 MAX jets.

The airlines haven’t disclosed how much they are seeking from Boeing, but some analysts peg industrywide losses at about $1 billion. In an interview with Axios, Muilenb上海千花坊

urg didn’t say how Boeing would compensate airlines, but it could be cash, a discount on future orders or additional pilot training and services.

Airlines seeking compensation include Air China, China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Norwegian Air, Turkish Air, Ryanair, Flydubai and United Airlines.上海千花坊品茶微信

“Reimbursement isn’t a technical problem,” John Cochran, president of Eaglemark, an aviation con

sulting firm and professor emeritus of Aerospace Engineering at Auburn University, told China Daily USA. “It’s a matter of first imp

ression. Some of what Boeing proposes to do may be contractual and it’s certainly sound public relations. Boeing wants to keep its customers happy.”上海千花坊

The 10,000-member pilots union for Southwest Airlines said this month it will ask B

oeing  for compensation to cover legal costs and lost income for pilots due to the 737 MAX grounding.

上海千花坊品茶微信The union hasn’t said how much pilots have lost, but it could be as much as $9 million a month, the Dallas Morning News reported.

Southwest has 34 MAX jets in its fleet. The airline said it plans to resume MAX flights on Sept

2, but the union said “there is no accurate estimate of when the MAX will return to service.”

上海千花坊品茶微信Airlines have used other planes when possible to replace grounded MAX jets, but some flights have been canceled. The airlines appa

rently seek compensation for lost revenue as well as storage and the cost of preparing the MAX to return to c

ommercial service when the US Federal Aviation Administration and other regulators say it’s safe to fly.

Boeing MAX jets were grounded worldwide following crashes March 10 in Ethiopi

a and October 29, 2018, in Indonesia that killed a total of 346 passengers and crew.

Preliminary investigations suggest the aircraft’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), an automated anti-stall device, apparently fo

rced the noses of Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines flights down and into a fatal plunge when it erroneously deter

mined the planes were about to stall. To avoid a stall, MCAS points the nose of the plane down to gain air speed.

The foreign secretary, Hunt, has proposed reducing the rate of corporation tax paid b

More than 1,000 items of military equipment including some of the most advanced weapons and concepts are being exhibited at the Army-2019 Military an

d Technical Forum this week in Kubinka, Russia, a city about 60 kilometers west of Moscow.上海会所品茶微信

More than 1,500 enterprises and organizations are in attendance at the show, which features nearly 27,000 products and technologies. It will last until Sunday.

“This year we’ve invited delegations from over 100 countries to take part in ARMY-2019. Official meetings will be held with 70 of them on the sidelines of the forum. … The level o

上海会所品茶微信f representation of partner countries is quite high this year: Over 30 of them are headed by defense ministers, their deputies and chiefs of the general st

aff,” said Sergey Chemezov, CEO of Rostec, Russia’s state-owned company that specializes in the defenses and military high-tech industries.

Paul Johnson, director of the IFS, said cutting corporation tax, and another promise made by H上海会所品茶微信

unt to raise defense spending, would “leave no scope to relieve the pressure on other areas of pub上海会所

lic spending without tax rises, or a fiscal stance which risked putting debt on a rising path”.

Both Conservative leadership contenders announced this week they will bring down the barriers to talented overseas workers.

Johnson said he would make the UK “much more open” to high-skilled migrants such as scientists, while Hunt prom

ised to scrap the immigration target of keeping net migration below 100,000, which has never been met.

Hunt said: “We’re not going to be a country that changes from Little Britain int

o Little England and pulls down the shutters and says ‘Foreigners not welcome’.”

Electric carmaker NIO will replace the power battery pack

with an improved version for vehicles within the scope of the recall for free to eliminate safety hazards.

上海419品茶微信At least three NIO ES8 vehicles had self-ignition accidents in the past three months and the State Administration for Market Regulation has started investigating the vehicles in these incidents.

Apart from recalling vehicles with safety hazards, the company has also established a transdepartmental 上海419

investigation team to optimize the quality management system of their products in cooperation with supply chain partners.

上海419品茶微信By May this year, NIO had delivered over 170,000 ES8 vehicles, and the 70 kilowatt-hour battery packs produced after Oct 20, 2018, have been equipped with modules of the specification model NEV-P102, which has no safety hazards, the company said.

A senior lawyer said he is “very optimistic” about the future of China’s business envi

ronment, as the country is determined to develop an advanced intellectual property protection legal regime.上海419

“We are very optimistic about the future of China’s business environment,” said Eric Liu, managing

partner of Zhao Sheng Law Firm. The office is the British law firm Linklaters’ joint operating partner in China.上海419品茶微信

Despite the uncertainty caused by the trade conflict, which has put investment and consumption on hold, Liu said he believes “Chin

a will continue opening its economy up to international trade and cross-border inbound and outbound direct investment.”

“China has become increasingly innovative, and is determined to develop an advanced legal regime for IP prot

ection, and new protection mechanisms have already taken shape in the country,” he said in a written reply.

He believes China will step up its efforts in protecting the intellectual prope

rty rights of foreign investors, following the promulgation of the Foreign Investment Law.

Asked about his take on the China-US trade dispute, Liu said: “Although we have seen many uncertainties concerning the tra

de dynamics between China and the US, we still believe in the potential and vitality of trade and investment markets.”

上海夜生活ious comments made on Brexit negotiations, saying there is only a “millio

n-to-one” chance that the United Kingdom will leave the European Union without a deal.

Just a day after he stoked concern by promising in a radio interview to leave the EU on Oct 31 “come wh

at may, do or die” with a no-deal Brexit, Johnson stated he did not believe that was where Britain would “end up”.

In a Conservative party hustings on Wednesday evening, Johnson said: “It’s absolutely vital that we prepare for a no-deal outcome if we’re going to get the deal that we need.

“上海夜生活女神会所I don’t think that’s where we’re going to end up — I think it’s a million to one against — but it’s vital that we prepare.”

The EU has said it will not return to Prime Minister Theresa May’s withdrawal deal, rejected three

times by UK Parliament, and experts are sceptical a new prime minister can secure any changes to the

controversial Northern Ireland backstop hated by Eurosceptic MPs by the end of October.

Both men vying to be the next prime minster, Johnson and Jeremy Hunt, have said they would back a no-

deal Brexit departure from the EU, if a new withdrawal agreement with Brussels couldn’t be reached.上海夜生活女神会所

Johnson said there was a new feeling of “common sense breaking out” among members of Parliament

in favor of passing a deal. He played down the idea that he would prorogue – or susp

hinese consumers to drive future global growth

One of Britain’s leading economists said Chinese consumer 上海品茶微信s will be the driving force of future global economic growth.

Jim O’Neill, chair of the international think tank Chatham House and former chief econom

i 上海品茶微信st at Goldman Sachs, made the remarks in a speech on Wednesday at the celebration of the 70th anniversary of th

e founding of the People’s Republic of China and the second China-UK Economic and Trade Forum in London.

“What happens to the Chinese consumers is more important to China’s future,” O’Neill said.

“If China continues with 8 percent nominal GDP gr 上海品茶微信owth, which I believe is 5 percent real (GDP growth), and 3 percent pri

ces (meaning inflation), and if the Chinese consumers become the 50 percent of that total, the change from the next

year to the next decade is somewhere between $11 to $12 trillion, which is equivalent to create another China,” he said.上海品茶微信

O’Neill i 上海品茶微信s known for coining the term BRIC, the group term for Brazil, Russia, India and China, in 2001, to describe the four rapidly-developing nations that symbolized the shifting balance in the global economy.

South Africa was added to the group nine years later, making it BRICS.

“China remains the only one of the BRICS countries that aft上海品茶微信er 17 years has actually done exactly what we had expected it would achieve,” he said.

His opinion is that the ongoing trade dispute with the Un

ited States is not the most important challenge the country currently faces.

To continue its success, O’Neill said, China ne

上海品茶微信女神会所eds to address aspects of its aging population, which is a key contr

ibutor to the economic growth slowdown, and tackle environmental issues and population control in urban areas.

O’Neill is a former British commercial secretary to the Treasury. He said the Belt and Road Initiative, or BRI, initiated six ye

ars ago, will play a “hugely important” role in global trade, which has been buffeted by rising protectionism and unilateralism.

The BRI aims to build the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road and deliver policies, infra

structure, trade, financial and people-to-people c上海品茶微信女神会所onnectivity via a new platform for a brighter future.

“If it can be implemented collectively, it can transform the trade pattern in Asia, p

articularly between China and India, two of the major BRICS countries,” he added.

The United Stat上海乌托邦女神会所es on Monday imposed new sanctions on Iran targeting its Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Kh

amenei and other senior officials, a move further worsening the already strained Washington-Tehran ties.

US President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Monday at the White House, which he said is “imposin

Trump accused Khamenei of being ultimately “responsible for the hostile conduct of the regime.”

The newly added sanctions will deny Iranian leadership’s access to financial resources, blocking the

m from using the US financial system or accessing any assets in the United States, according to the White House.

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin revealed in a following press conference on

Monday that the new order will freeze billions of additional dollars in Iranian assets.
