Boeing said it didn’t expect the latest problem to push back the aircraft’s return, which it has said could occur by midyear.

The company said the debris was discovered during “routine” inspections, but didn’t detail how many planes were affected or when they rolled off the production line. The problem was first reported on leeham.net, an aviation news site.
