Boeing 737 Max is a derivative of Boeing 737 equipped with new engines. This new aircraft family is based on the advantages of the new generation 737, including Boeing 737 max7, Boeing 737 max8, 737 max9, 737 max10 and Boeing 737 max200.
The Boeing 737 Max aircraft is equipped with the latest leap-1b engine. The first aircraft was offline on December 8, 2015 and completed its first flight on January 29, 2016. On October 29, 2018, an Indonesian lion Air Boeing 737max crashed 13 minutes after takeoff, killing 189 people.
On March 11, 2019, Boeing released a statement on the enhancement of 737 Max flight software. On the 12th, the Singapore government announced that all inbound and outbound Boeing 737max flights will be banned from 14:00 Beijing time. On the 13th, the Civil Aviation Administration of the Macao Special Administrative Region (MSAR) suspended the examination and approval of flight applications submitted by any aviation enterprise using Boeing 737 Max 8 and Max 9 aircraft. Kazakhstan has suspended flights of Boeing 737max in its territory. On the 14th, Japan banned Boeing 737max from flying in its airspace.

On April 5, Boeing decided to cut the production of 737 max series airliners by 10 per month. On June 9, American Airlines issued a statement to extend the grounded date of Boeing 737max from August 19 to September 3. On June 26, the Federal Aviation Administration of the United States issued a statement saying that there was a potential risk of "must be removed" for Boeing 737max series aircraft, which brought more uncertainty to the go around of this type of aircraft.
On May 27, 2020, Boeing said it had resumed production of the 737 Max aircraft, but the FAA had not yet approved the model to go around.
At about 13:00 EST on June 29, 2020, a Boeing 737max took off from the golden County Airport in Seattle, USA, for key flight tests. The flight test, which is expected to last three days, is a key step in the 737max go around. According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the test "will include a series of flight drills and emergency procedures so that the agency can assess whether these changes meet the FAA certification standards."
On November 18, 2020, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced the lifting of the "no fly order" on Boeing 737max.
Equipped with a new fuel saving engine, the 737 Max has an average range of more than 1000 km higher than the 737NG, which makes it possible for the 737 Max to open more direct non-stop routes. According to Boeing, more than half of the world's population lives in the 737 Max's range circle from Beijing. Boeing adheres to the concept of point-to-point flight to avoid congestion in large hub cities. The 787 and 737 Max are actually the wings of this idea.
For Chinese airlines, 787 main long-range and intercontinental routes, and 737 Max can open up more regional, international and domestic markets. The combination of the two can open up more point-to-point city pairs, and the channel will sink to the second and third tier cities previously inaccessible. When the 737 Max is delivered in volume, the market will find an unprecedented and complete new generation of airliner products to choose from, supporting all types of customers from large airlines to low-cost airlines.
Boeing 737 Max's tortuous road inevitably makes passengers have some worries.
