Following the crashes, Boeing grounded planes in mid-March, cut production of the Max 737 by 20 per cent, and ceased deliveries of the aircraft, according to CNBC.

Boeing 737 Max's anti-stall software, known as MCAS, has been cited as a possible contributor to the tragic crashes.

The new FAA report, issued on Tuesday, has deemed the aircraft's software "operationally suitable".

The report pointed out that the FAA's review panel only evaluated the training aspects related to the software fix.

Boeing is under pressure to upgrade the software and convince global regulators that the plane is safe to fly again, a process expected to take at least 90 days.

International Shareholder Services and Glass Lewis said that investors should back a proposal to appoint a new independent chairman at Boeing's shareholder meeting on April 29.

Concerns about Boeing's development of the plane "are serious enough to suggest that shareholders would benefit from the most robust form of independent board oversight, in the form of an independent board chair, " ISS said.

Glass Lewis also recommended investors vote to remove from the board the head of Boeing's audit committee, Lawrence Kellner. Kellner is a former CEO of Continental Airlines. "Boeing has yet to submit the final software package".
