It appears that the MAX grounding is working towards a resolution.  The meeting of international regulators on May 23rd will review what the various working groups and committees have found and try to find common ground for a reinstatement decision.  There are rumors that the FAA may decide to go it alone and approve operations again even if some other countries disagree.  It seems implausible they could be the only agency to do so.

News from COPA in Panama suggests they expect to fly their MAXs in July.  Maybe the decision will be sooner than some think.  But until we hear from each agency, it is difficult to predict the future.  Unfortunately, politics also can enter into the process.  Canada, we suspect, will want to conduct its own certification process.  While there is no obvious connection, Canada still seethes over the ITC case that essentially drove Bombardier out of the commercial aerospace business.  Boeing Karma has boomeranged
