Boeing 737 Max's anti-stall software, known as MCAS, has been cited as a possible contributor to the tragic crashes.

Changes that U.S. aircraft manufacturer Boeing has proposed in the wake of two deadly accidents of its top-selling 737 MAX aircraft are "suitable", a government source has said.

The report pointed out that the FAA's review panel only evaluated the training aspects related to the software fix.

International Shareholder Services and Glass Lewis said that investors should back a proposal to appoint a new independent chairman at Boeing's shareholder meeting on April 29.

American Airlines is cancelling 115 flights per day through mid-August because of ongoing problems with the Boeing 737 Max aircraft. Kellner is the former chair and chief executive of Continental Airlines.

Boeing said in a statement it "has a strong, actively engaged board, which brings a high level of expertise, dedication and commitment to its oversight function, including with respect to the safety of the 737 MAX and our other airplane programs".

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has certified the training aspects of Boeing's software update for its grounded 737 MAX aircraft fleet, media reported on Tuesday.
