Boeing has said it expects its troubled 737 Max aircraft to return to the skies before the end of the year.

The jet was grounded after two fatal crashes, including last year's Lion Air disaster which killed 189 people.

Just hours after Indonesian investigators blamed mechanical and design problems for the crash, Boeing said it had developed software updates.

The investigators focused on a system used to improve handling and prevent stalling on the Boeing 737 Max.

"Our top priority remains the safe return to service of the 737 Max, and we're making steady progress," Boeing boss Dennis Muilenburg said.

The firm said it had also developed a training update and that it expected regulators to allow the planes to take off again before the beginning of 2020.

"We've also taken action to further sharpen our company's focus on product and services safety, and we continue to deliver on customer commitments and capture new opportunities, with our values of safety, quality and integrity always at the forefront," Mr Muilenburg said.

I Call Bull: BULL, they expected it back a darn sight sooner than that and tbh i'd be more than a little surprised to see them in the skies again so (relatively) soon.
Would anyone feel particularly safe flying when all thats been changed is software updates? Not sure I would.
