  • Inspector General clears acting Pentagon chief in probe: source      Thu, 25 Apr 2019 08:30:10 -0400

    Inspector General clears acting Pentagon chief in probe: sourceThe U.S. Defense Department's inspector general has concluded that acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan did not seek preferential treatment of Boeing Co, his former employer, while at the Pentagon, a U.S. official told Reuters on Thursday. The decision potentially opens the door for U.S. President Donald Trump to nominate Shanahan to be the next defense secretary. Officials close to Shanahan have said they believe one of the main reasons he has not been nominated yet was because of the inspector general's investigation.

  • Southwest Airlines profit beats Wall Street estimate on revenue growth      Thu, 25 Apr 2019 08:21:43 -0400

    Southwest Airlines profit beats Wall Street estimate on revenue growthDallas, Texas-based Southwest, the world's largest MAX operator with 34 jets in its fleet and dozens more on order, said closely-watched unit revenue grew 2.7 percent in the quarter, helped by its loyalty program. Analysts cut their estimates sharply in late March after regulators around the world grounded Boeing's 737 MAX jets following two fatal crashes. The No. 4 U.S. airline said it lost more than $200 million in revenue during the quarter after canceling flights due to the 737 MAX grounding, severe winter weather, the U.S. government shutdown and unscheduled maintenance disruptions as it worked out a new labor contract with its mechanics union.
