Boeing said they will temporarily cut production of their grounded 737 MAX planes by about a fifth starting in mid-April, reports the Wall Street Journal.

Details: The decrease in production comes after two major crashes, and is meant to allow Boeing to "prioritize additional resources to focus on software certification and returning the MAX to flight," Boeing Chairman and CEO Dennis Muilenburg said in a statement, per CNBC.
