SEATTLEBoeing delivered its first 737 MAX jet over 21 months, the first since the Federal Aviation Administration ungrounded the jet last month.
The aircraft went to United Airlines. The airline will do some modifications to the plane at Sea-Tac, and it is expected to depart for United’s hub in Houston by the end of the week.

United won’t fly any passengers on the MAX yet. It doesn’t plan to have the jet enter scheduled service until the first quarter of 2021.
“As we begin receiving 737 MAX deliveries from Boeing, we will inspect every aircraft, require our pilots to undergo additional training reviewed and approved by the FAA, and conduct test flights before we bring these aircraft back into service,”
said United spokesperson Frank Benenati.

He said the airline will share a more specific schedule with the public and employees soon.#
