More Boeings grounded amid global probe into Ethiopia crash

More Boeings grounded amid global probe into Ethiopia crash

"We're going to be issuing an emergency order of prohibition to ground all flights of the 737 MAX 8 and the 737 MAX 9 and planes associated with that line", Trump told reporters at the White House.

The company says in the aftermath of October's Lion Air Flight crash, it has for several months "been developing a flight control software enhancement for the 737 MAX, created to make an already safe aircraft even safer".

Despite Canada's decision to ground Max 8s and 9s, WestJet said it "remains confident in the safety of its Boeing 737 fleet", but will comply with all of Transport Canada's instruction regarding the aircraft.

Members of the Democrat Party in the United States initially accused the Trump Administration of dragging its feet on grounding the Max-8 jets to protect Boeing profits - the company donated US$1 million to Trump's inauguration and Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg is a regular confidant of the President.

Boeing rolled out the fuel-efficient MAX 8 in 2017 as an update to the already redesigned 50-year-old 737, and had delivered 350 MAX jets out of the total order tally of 5,011 aircraft by the end of January.

Investigators at the crash site recovered the recorder, TV said.

Ryder explained the airlines may try to cut the number of flights on some routes and replace the Max 8 jetliners with larger planes.

"Airplanes are becoming far too complex to fly", he tweeted, adding that instead of pilots, the planes require "computer scientists from MIT". It does not intend to issue new recommendations about the aircraft to customers. But the company says it expects the FAA to mandate the software upgrade through an "Airworthiness Directive (AD) no later than April".

A spokesman for Ethiopian Airlines, Asrat Begashaw, said the airline has "a range of options" for the data and voice recorders of the flight's last moments.

"The pilot reported flight control problems and requested to turn back".

Australia and Singapore joined the growing list of countries that have grounded their Boeing 727 Max aeroplanes overnight.

China ordered its airlines to ground the jet, a move followed by Indonesia and Ethiopia.

"Based on real information and data, and ongoing consultations with government safety regulators including Transport Canada and the FAA, we have full confidence in the safety of our fleet and operations and we continue to operate the 737, " she said in an email.

He said he had spoken with the airlines, as well as the CEO of Boeing and they were all in agreement with the decision.

"Pilots repeatedly voiced safety concerns about the Boeing 737 Max 8 to federal authorities, with one captain calling the flight manual inadequate and nearly criminally insufficient", the newspaper noted. But they might not have any recourse. "We appreciate our customers' patience". "They do not have a right to compensation or reimbursement for tickets purchased as it is technically their decision to cancel".

Authorities around the world have grounded the new version of the single-aisle workhorse amid concerns that similarities between the African tragedy and an October crash in Indonesia could point to an inherent safety risk. Just know that you're probably going to be charged for changing your flight.
