Trump says Boeing should fix Max jets, then rename them

American Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 sits at a boarding gate at La Guardia Airport in New York. American Airlines is canceling 115 flights per day through mid August because of ongoing problems with the Boeing 737 Max aircr

Amid the ongoing Boeing 737 MAX scandal, the company's share price has plummeted and worldwide fleets of the problematic plane are grounded, but one unlikely source has offered some advice: Donald Trump.

"What do I know about branding, maybe nothing (but I did become President!)", Trump tweeted at 6.29 a.m. ET.

The US president tweeted his hot take on the embattled airliner's issues in the early hours of Monday morning, suggesting a rebranding and some unspecified "additional great features" were the recipe for a reversal of Boeing's misfortune. He adds: "No product has suffered like this one". "But again, what the hell do I know?", he added.

The chief of Ethiopian Airlines says the warning and training requirements set for the now-grounded 737 Max aircraft may not have been enough following the Ethiopian plane crash that killed 157 people.

Last week, Southwest Airlines made a similar move and United Airlines has also cancelled 737 Max 8 flights until June.

Airlines are being forced to ground their planes longer than expected after Boeing and the FAA said the company needed more time to complete changes to a flight-control system suspected of playing a role in the recent crashes.

Boeing has the world's most valuable aerospace brand, having seen the value of its overall corporate image rise by 61 percent to $32 billion in 2018, according to the same branding firm. Speaking at a Boeing plant in SC in 2017, Trump closed out his speech saying, "God bless you, may God bless the United States of America, and God bless Boeing". The office said the tariffs would have consequences for an extended trade dispute involved Airbus, the European aircraft behemoth, and said that the damage caused by EU subsidies totalled $US11 billion every year. Trump said on Twitter. "It will soon stop!"
