Boeing has announced a fix for the 737 Max airplane, which remains widely grounded across the globe after an Ethiopian Airlines plane crashed shortly after takeoff and killed all 157 on board earlier this month. It was the second crash in less than six months, after a Lion Air flight crashed in Indonesia last October.

The company will make standard in all 737 planes a warning system that had previously been a paid optional upgrade, reports the BBC. Neither of the Boeing planes involved in the Indonesia or Ethiopia crashes had the warning system installed, but Boeing told reporters that the fix to include this as standard is not an admission of responsibility in either of the crashes, according to the BBC.
