The Federal Aviation Administration is reviewing quality-control lapses at Boeing that could stretch back almost a decade, The Wall Street Journal reported Monday, citing an internal government memo and people familiar with the matter. The review piles onto the numerous regulatory issues Boeing has faced in the wake of two crashes involving its 737 Max planes that killed all 346 people onboard the two flights. Since then, Boeing has faced renewed scrutiny over its safety standards and manufacturing protocols as well as a deluge of questions from both regulators and lawmakers. Its 737 Max planes remain grounded.
