Boeing says loose bolts caused door plug blowout on 737

Boeing still in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. The company continues to face heavy criticism following a spate of bad news stories.

After an Alaska Airlines 737 Max 9 flight had to perform an emergency landing due to a door plug blowing out, the airline grounded all of its similar models.

United Airlines is also considering pausing a new batch of planes from Boeing.
