U.S. grounds Boeing Max 8 planes over crash

How to Check If Your Plane Is a Boeing 737 MAX 8 Before You Fly

Earlier, the United States pilots already expressed their safety concerns about flying Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft as they complained that the jets' autopilot sometimes prompted them to nosedive and lose altitude. But if the crash was caused by pilot error, then the problem could be corrected by training, and the grounding could be short, Goelz said.

Flightradar24 reported on Wednesday that the USA and Canada remain the only countries to have the Boeing 737 MAX 8 operating in their airspace.

"We're closely monitoring the situation and are in constant contact with Boeing", the company, said in an email.

"It's unfortunate, but we must put safety at the top of the agenda" he said, confirming that it affects domestic carriers including Air Canada, WestJet Airlines Ltd. and Sunwing, as well as worldwide airlines.

In Addis Ababa, angry relatives of the 157 people who were killed Sunday stormed out of a meeting with airline officials, complaining that they were not getting enough information.

Investigators looking into the Indonesian crash are examining whether the software automatically pushed the plane's nose down repeatedly, and whether the Lion Air pilots knew how to solve that problem by throwing toggle switches and cancelling the automated nose-down commands. It was reportedly created to be a safety feature, to compensate for stalling that was occurring due to how the engines were fitted to the Boeing 737 Max wings.

He said: "Regarding Air Peace and Arik orders, whether those orders were confirmed or intent, it is to our knowledge in the ministry that they won't be in the country until the next two years or so". They compared the flight patterns of the Ethiopian Airlines jet against Lion Air, saying authorities have a clearer knowledge of what happened in the earlier crash.

"We make our own decisions in Canada and occasionally those decisions may be different from our colleagues south of the border", Garneau said.

"The agency made this decision as a result of the data gathering process and new evidence collected at the site and analysed today", the FAA said in a statement, shortly after US President Donald Trump announced the planes would be grounded.

And Turkish Airlines, one of the largest carriers in the world, said it was suspending use of its 12 MAX aircraft from Wednesday, until "uncertainty" was clarified.

"Big families, a lot of people and the full Israeli nation is waiting for these remains, and we will not go out of Ethiopia until we find the remains to bury them", Biton said. A total of 18 Canadians were killed in the latest crash.

He says that affects airlines like Air Canada, WestJet and Sunwing, and also has implications for airlines from outside the country. The plane's passengers included nine Ethiopians, in addition to Ethiopian crew.
