Eric Lindblad, the head of Boeing's 737 programme is retiring, as the company works to restore confidence in the 737 Max aircraft, which has been grounded following two crashes that killed nearly 350 people in the span of five months.

The Bank of England said that the "perceived likelihood" of a no-deal Brexit had increased and that it would bring along with it "material risks of economic disruption".
Britain wants to see accountability for the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi and Saudi Arabia should investigate the death thoroughly and in a way that adheres to international laws, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday. Last week, a U.N. rights investigator said Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and other senior officials should be investigated over the murder, given credible evidence against them. "We do want to see accountability for this horrific murder... We expect Saudi Arabia to take the action necessary to ensure such violations of international and national laws can't happen again," May said in parliament.

The U.S. Senate on Thursday voted to block the sale of billions of dollars in military sales to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and other countries, rejecting President Donald Trump's decision to sidestep Congress' review of such deals by declaring an emergency over Iran. Trump has promised to veto the Senate action in order to proceed with the deals, worth some $8.1 billion. Senators would need 67 votes to override his veto, which looked unlikely after Thursday's votes.
Leading British defence firm BAE Systems said on Thursday it would continue to support the government in its agreements it has made with Saudi Arabia following a court ruling that Britain had granted arms export licences unlawfully. "We continue to support the UK Government in providing equipment, support and training under government to government agreements between the United Kingdom and Saudi Arabia," BAE Systems said in a statement after the ruling, which does not halt exports but means Britain will pause issuing new licences. "We will assess the result of the UK Government's reconsideration of its decision-making on the basis set out by the court, once it has been made," it said, adding it complied with all relevant export control laws.
Iran would be the only beneficiary of any end to arms exports from Britain to Saudi Arabia, the kingdom's minister of state for foreign affairs said on Thursday, adding that the deployment of weapons in Yemen was legitimate. A UK court earlier found that Britain broke the law by allowing arms sales to Saudi Arabia that might have been used in Yemen's war. The ruling does not halt Britain's arms exports but means the granting of new licences will be paused.
Iran has created a grave situation and jeopardised global oil supplies with its aggressive behaviour, Saudi Arabia's minister of state for foreign affairs said on Thursday, adding that the kingdom was consulting with allies on next steps. The United States and Saudi Arabia are among countries that have blamed Iran for attacks on oil tankers near the Strait of Hormuz, a major transit route for global oil supplies. "I think the situation is very grave because of the aggressive behaviour of Iran," Adel al-Jubeir told reporters in London.
A British court on Thursday ruled that the British government had acted unlawfully in allowing arms exports to Saudi Arabia that might have been used in the conflict in Yemen. "The decision of the court today does not mean that licenses to export arms to Saudi Arabia must immediately be suspended," he said. The case was brought by the Campaign Against the Arms Trade against the British government.
