Boeing suspend 737 MAX deliveries, but keeps producing them - spokesman

In a statement issued this morning, Boeing said the decision to ground all 737 Max aircraft worldwide was made "out of an abundance of caution".

One Rwandan national, Jackson Musoni, who works with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees in Darfur, Sudan, was aboard the ill-fated plane and also perished in the accident.

In the days immediately following the crash it was unclear whether or not the USA and Canada were planning to ground Boeing's popular new jets.

The US Federal Aviation Administration grounded the planes on Wednesday, saying regulators had new satellite evidence that showed the movements of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 were similar to those of Lion Air Flight 610.

The families of people killed in the Ethiopian Airlines plane crash stormed out of a meeting with the airline in Addis Ababa on Thursday, complaining of a lack of information.

It was the second crash in five months, sending Boeing into a crisis and raising questions about what will happen to the company's best selling jet.

Legislators noted that there have been no confirmed incidents in 50,000 North America flights with the 737 MAX 8 and questioned if training by carriers overseas was an issue.

So for now, we can assume that in the coming months the production of the new Model 3 is going to be quite low. Tesla stated that the people holding the reservation will possibly be getting the vehicle in near 4 weeks.

"The 737-800 MAX and newer models are not among the fleet coming to Liberia".

"I think most aviation experts will tell you that since we have automated aircraft, since the dawn of automation, safety has improved dramatically and while they are more complex they are definitely safer", said Elwell.

That process could last six weeks or more, depending on additional training needed for pilots, said Representative Rick Larsen, the Democratic chairman of the panel's aviation subcommittee.

He said: "According to the air traffic controller's recorded voice exchange, the pilot recorded flight control problems, so he was having difficulties with the flight control of the aeroplane".

"Overall, we view the interruptions from the 737 MAX grounding as a temporary, one-off issue", Spracklin wrote.

Indonesia plans to send a flight inspector and an official from KNKT to Ethiopia to help with the probe into Sunday's crash, pending approval from Ethiopian authorities, Soerjanto said.
