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.

In the next few years, the Nanshan park will speed up con

construction of the Tsinghua Shenzhen International Graduate School, SUSTech Institute of Microe

上海419论坛lectronics, Pengcheng Laboratory, Shenzhen Bay Laboratory and Nobel Laureate Laboratory.

The park will also dismantle old factories to add 3.5 million sq meters of floor space for industrial development.

Shenzhen’s first united headquarters building will also be located in the Na

nshan park to house 15 high-tech firms, 12 of which will be listed companies.上海419论坛

The zone’s Pingshan park, occupying 51.6 square kilometers, is the largest among the five parks across the city. It is divided into the

southern and northern areas. The northern area features a new-energy industry headquarters while the sout

上海419论坛hern area, where Shenzhen Technology University is located, is focused on education, intelligent manufacturing and innovative services.

In 2019, the Pingshan park will provide an additional 50,000 sq km of land for industrial development through urban rejuvenation and upgrading old industrial parks.

Shenzhen National High-Tech Zone, inaugurated in 1996, was transformed from Shenzhen Science and Technology Park, which was set up in 1985.

It is China’s second-largest national high-tech zone in terms of area and ranks No 2 in GDP amon上海419论坛

g the 157 national high-tech parks, following Zhongguancun in Beijing, according to the Ministry of Science and Technology.

It yielded 24.4 billion yuan ($3.87 billion) of GDP and 4.3 billion yuan of tax revenue per square kilometer in 2018, the biggest among

all its counterparts in the country. It accounted for 15 percent of the city’s total patent applications and yie

One of Britain’s leading economists said Chinese consumers will be the driving force of future global economic growth.

Jim O’Neill, chair of the international think tank Chatham House and former chief economist at Goldman Sachs, made the remarks in a speech on Wednesday at the c上海419论坛女神会所

elebration of the 70th anniversary of the 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.上海419论坛女神会所

“If China continues with 8 percent nominal GDP growth, which I believe is 5 percent real (GDP growth), and 3 percent pric

es (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 so

mewhere between $11 to $12 trillion, which is equivalent to create another China,” he said.

This engaging encou上海419论坛品茶微信 ound and light sho

ow is the focus上海419论坛品茶微信 for Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience, an ong

oing exhibition at the National Museum of China that runs through Sept 22. Techn

icians have used cutting-edge technology to bring to life the work of the gifted artist through an all-encompassing pr

ojection display of images taken from more than 200 paintings and drawings from the artist’s oeuvre.

The 35-minute show is being staged inside a purpose-built rectangular box occ

upying a section of the spacious third-floor corridor of the National Museum of China.

The viewer first encounters Van Gogh through a space set out like a galler

y, in which the painter’s self-portraits are displayed on wall-mounted screens. Then the gal

lery changes into different scenes inspired by Van Gogh’s iconic works, where viewers “step inside” these fam

iliar landscapes. One moment, viewers are surrounded by blossoming almond trees, while the next, they watch cr

ows flying over expansive wheat fields. Overhead, a dreamy, starlit night sky unfolds.

In recent years, Van Gogh has been the subject of many popular interactive exhibitions at home and abroad, where digital t

echnology rather than the original paintings are used to offer an insight into the painter’s life and art.
