But maybe not in the way that investors would like.

The Federal Aviation Agency on Sunday that the slats on the wings on both current 737 MAX jets and the plane's earlier version, which assist in takeoff and landing, "may be susceptible to premature failure or cracks resulting from the improper manufacturing process." Boeing said that the slats could be replaced within one or two days once alternate parts are received from suppliers, and identified around 20 737 MAX airplanes as needing immediate replacement. Around 159 more, Boeing said, will need to be checked "to ensure a thorough assessment."
