According to The Seattle Times:

Boeing scratched a planned Tuesday conference call with airlines to reassure them about the safety of the 737 MAX, and will replace it with a series of regional meetings and conference calls with airlines “early next week in close proximity to our customers.”

The switch is “to allow for more attendance, more time for Q&A and to accommodate different time zones,” Boeing said. “These meetings will be hosted by Boeing Field Service Representatives who are located regionally with our customers."

The planned meetings are intended to allow Boeing engineering and maintenance staff to answer technical questions from their airline counterparts. The original teleconference call was arranged in response to queries from airlines after the disclosure of a new automated flight-control system introduced on the MAX that may be implicated in the fatal Oct. 29 crash of Lion Air flight JT610.

A Boeing spokesman said it proved difficult to find a time that worked for all participants around the world.
