"The aircraft returned and landed safely in Orlando".
The plane was empty - save for its two pilots - and was originally en route to Victorville, California before an emergency landing sent it back to ground in Orlando.
Escalating federal and lawmaker scrutiny regarding the 737 MAX aircraft might enhance Boeing's (BA) troubles.
The Boeing 737 MAX 8 has come under heavy scrutiny after its involvement in two fatal plane crashes in six months - the Ethiopian Airlines crash on March 10 and the Lion Air crash in Indonesia on October 29, 2018. After the Ethiopia Airlines crash, China moved first to order the grounding of 737 MAX aircraft and other nations followed China's lead.
Boeing is updating the plane's anti-stall software and has invited more than 200 pilots, technical experts and regulators to its factory in Renton, Washington, for a briefing.
"We believe the risk/reward is very compelling on the Boeing stock at current levels", Arment said.
On Saturday, pilots and training officials from Southwest Airlines, American Airlines and United Airlines met with Boeing officials to review updated software for 737 Max planes in the Seattle area, where the model is assembled, multiple airline sources told CNN on Monday.
The Allied Pilots Association, which represents American Airlines pilots, said it welcomed steps toward increased safety.
During flight simulations recreating the problems with the doomed Lion Air plane, pilots discovered that they had less than 40 seconds to override an automated system on Boeing's new jets and avert disaster.

Police say Smollett - who gained fame on Fox musical drama Empire - staged the attack in a bid to gain publicity and a bigger paycheck.
The 737 Max fleet was grounded worldwide after a pair of crashes that investigators worry could be related to the flight-control software installed on the jets.
Any fixes to the MAX software must still get approval from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and eventually from governments around the world, a process that could take months. "All of us thank Ethiopian Airlines for their commitment and share their resolve to doing everything possible to build an even safer air travel system".
But Rollins said that including MCAS in the manual would suggest it was a significant enough system that pilots would need to undergo classroom- or simulator-based training.
It added that "as a precautionary measure" it was suspending all flight operations of all Boeing Model 737-8 MAX and 737-9 MAX planes in Europe.
On March 12, Oman's Public Authority for Civil Aviation chose to suspend all Boeing 737 MAX planes operating into and out of the country's airports until further notice.
The plane's No. 2 engine began to overheat after takeoff, after ingesting debris on the runway which caused a buildup of exhaust.
The expansive wasteland of jumbo jets and old aircraft sit on the edge of the Mojave Desert in Southern California, an odd graveyard of planes that once dominated our skies.
Following the Lion Air crash, pilots sat down with Boeing executives to complain they had not been given any information about the new MCAS system.
