The constant puzzle of Boeing: Why certain safety features on the 737 Max jets were turned off

Boeing maker did not tell Southwest Airlines when the carrier began to fly 737 Max planes in 2017, because a standard safety feature found in previous models designed to warn pilots of abnormal sensors was stopped.

Federal aviation managers of safety inspectors and inspectors responsible for monitoring Southwest, Max's largest customer, were not aware of the change, according to government and industry officials.
