Boeing has alerted the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and is notifying customers and its suppliers about the issue, it said in an emailed statement. Boeing’s best-selling jet was grounded on March 13th last year after two fatal crashes involving a flight-control system.

The issue involves how a software system on the aircraft checks to ensure that data it is receiving from other monitors is functioning properly, said a person familiar with the issue who wasn’t authorised to speak about it. The issue occurs when the system is initially powered up, the person said.

The 737 Max is costing the planemaker billions in losses. The software problem was discovered during the final validation review process of the software updates being installed on the aircraft, the person said.
