China is stepping up pressure on Boeing Co.as its airlines demand compensation for the grounding of 737 Max jetliners after fatal crashes in Ethiopia and Indonesia.

On Wednesday, the Federal Aviation Administration until safety concerns are addressed.

The 737 Max was grounded in March following two crashes in five months which claimed the lives of 346 people.

Munoz said it would include educating customers and employees about why United feels it's safe to resume flights, making it clear to customers when they're flying on a Max and working with travelers who remain nervous about the aircraft.
