Boeing halts 737 MAX deliveries amid fallout after deadly Ethiopian crash

Clue found in Ethiopian Boeing Max wreckage Sources

The analysis of the data should begin, therefore, on Friday.

A Lion Air flight on a 737 Max 8 also crashed in October in Indonesia, taking the lives of its 189 passengers and crew.

Sunday's plane crashed minutes after takeoff outside Addis Ababa, killing all 157 on board, including eight Americans.

Soerjanto, the head of safety agency KNKT, told Reuters the investigation into the Lion Air crash would be speeded up and the report will be released in July-August, earlier than its original timeline of August-September.

Investigators have drawn similarities between the crashes, and focused their attention on the aircrafts' anti-stall system.

"An Ethiopian delegation led by Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB) has flown the Flight Data Recorder (FDR) and Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) to Paris, France for investigation".

The FAA on Wednesday ordered that all Boeing 737 MAX 8 and MAX 9 planes flown by USA carriers be grounded until further notice.

The stabilizer was set in an unusual position similar to that of a Lion Air plane that crashed previous year, two sources familiar with the matter said. It will take several days to complete the first readings from the boxes, French aviation officials said.

Under worldwide rules, Ethiopia is leading the investigation, but the BEA will canalyse the black boxes as an adviser.

Investigators looking into the Indonesian crash are examining whether software automatically pushed the plane's nose down repeatedly, and whether the Lion Air pilots knew how to solve that problem.

"Our Boeing 737 MAX aircraft account for roughly 40 flights a day and through a combination of spare aircraft and rebooking customers, we do not anticipate a significant operational impact as a result of this order", wrote United in the statement.

Air traffic controllers were aware of the plane's flight path. Peter Goelz, a former managing director of the NTSB who is now an aviation consultant, said that late call by the Federal Aviation Administration may indeed have been a factor. In most cases, the airlines will automatically reschedule travelers on other flights, she said.
