Black Boxes of Ethiopian Boeing 737 MAX to Be Analysed in France

Air Canada

Pilots didn’t trust the Boeing Max 8 and now flyers are rejecting them

Boeing, which maintained that its planes were safe to fly, said in a statement that it supported the FAA's move to temporarily ground 737 MAX flights.

The single-aisle 737 MAX, first delivered in May 2017, has been Boeing's best-selling plane ever with more than 350 planes registered and about 5,000 planes on order.

The crash in Ethiopia was the second fatal incident involving the narrow-body aircraft in less than five months. That was the second crash involving that plane in question; Lion Air flight 610 crashed in October a year ago, killing 189.

Germany's federal agency responsible for investigating air accidents said it would not analyse the damaged black boxes from the Ethiopian Airlines plane, casting uncertainty over the process of finding out what may have caused the disaster.

Air Canada and rival WestJet Airlines operate a total of 37 Boeing 737 Max jets.

The "safety notice" means none of the aircraft can fly into, out of, or over Canada, he added: "I will not hesitate to take swift action should we discover any additional safety issues".

United States ban followed Canada's ban of the aircraft as a precaution post the Ethiopian crash on Sunday.

Southwest has more than 750 Boeing 737s and 34 of the newer Max 8 aircraft.

Canada and America have now banned Boeing 737 Max aircraft from flying anywhere over the Great White North and the Land of the Free, pending the implementation of new safety measures and training programs.

That has been "helpful", said Lankford, who added that he plans to oppose the disapproval measure. It is very simply Border Security/No Crime - Should not be thought of any other way .

Regulators across the world shut operation of the 737 down, sending the company's stock price falling. The Boeing 737 flight manual includes a procedure for pilots to counter any problems in the aircraft's automatic trim system by disconnecting the autopilot and auto throttle systems.

At the rural site where Flight ET 302, which was bound for the Kenyan capital Nairobi, came down near the village of Gora-Bokka, dozens of grief-stricken relatives paid their respects.

Only charred fragments of victims remain, meaning it will take weeks to identify all of them using dental or DNA testing.

"With the concerns with the MAX 8 nose down stuff, we both thought it appropriate to bring it to your attention, ' the captain wrote". They should notify the passengers before.

The US Federal Aviation Administration has so far refused to ground the 737 Max fleet.

In a statement Wednesday, before the order from Transport Canada, Air Canada spokeswoman Isabelle Arthur said the airline has a "flexible rebooking policy" that includes options to change flights to another aircraft if space permits, but wouldn't indicate if that comes with a fee.

Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal suggested on Twitter that an upcoming hearing on the crash would focus on that conversation. "But we hope and expect that our MAXes will be airborne soon", Norwegian Air's founder and Chief Executive Bjoern Kjos said in a video recording released on social media.

The new variant of the world's most-sold modern passenger aircraft was viewed as the likely workhorse for airlines for decades. All 189 people on the flight died.

United Airlines said nothing is more important than the safety of its customers and employees and that it will comply.
