In a six-week review earlier this year, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) conducted 89 product audits on Boeing, during which Boeing did not meet the standards in 33 cases, leading to 97 reported instances of alleged noncompliance.

In late February, the FAA gave the aerospace manufacturer 90 days to develop a plan to address the quality control issues the company reportedly has demonstrated, The New York Times reported, quoting FAA administrator Mike Whitaker as saying, “Boeing must commit to real and profound improvements.”

Now, Reuters reports that the FAA said Boeing must not expand production of their 737 MAX airliner before improving their safety- and quality-control measures.

"If it’s not safe, then the whole system is not working the way it should," Whitaker told ‘NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt’.
