Flights canceled at Orlando International Airport as feds ground 737 Max fleet

Trump orders Boeing 737 Max fleet grounded in US

Trump orders Boeing 737 Max fleet grounded in US

In an interview with The Associated Press, Asrat Begashaw said the airline has "a range of options" for the data and voice recorders of the flight's last moments. An airline official has said one of the recorders was partially damaged.

Europeans tend to book their summer holidays in May, so the grounding may not yet affect bookings for the peak season for the airline industry, the analyst said.

The 737 Max airlines are a small percentage of the fleets for both American and Southwest Airlines, having been introduced into service just two years ago.

Airline pilots on at least two USA -flown Boeing 737 Max 8 planes had reported that the automated system caused the aircraft's nose to tilt down sharply and suddenly after take-off.

'However, after consultation with the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), and aviation authorities and its customers around the world, Boeing has determined - out of an abundance of caution and in order to reassure the flying public of the aircraft's safety - to recommend to the FAA the temporary suspension of operations of the entire global fleet of 371 737 Max aircraft'.

The crash came a month after the Lion Air crash in October involving the same model aircraft.

This required airlines to instruct pilots on applying the checklist if they have difficulty controlling an aircraft that's being pushed into a nose-down position by the autopilot.

"Safety is Boeing's number one priority and we have full confidence in the safety of the 737 MAX".

"We know what happened with the Lion Air flight, we wanted to see whether the Ethiopian flight resembled it", he said. Those relate to the specific behavior of this specific type of aircraft.

Avraham Matsliah, 49, from Ma'ale Adumim, was killed in the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines flight near Addis Ababa on March 10, 2019.

Houston Rep. Al Green will push another impeachment vote, despite Pelosi's resistance
But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi , D-Calif., told The Washington Post that impeaching the president is "just not worth it ". While Pelosi said she wasn't in favour of impeaching Trump, she maintained that he wasn't fit for the presidency.

The move left the United States as the only major country where the planes continued to operate.

Meantime, there is no evidence at all that the travelling public should have any concerns about the safety of other Boeing 737 aircraft types, the types that most of our Australian airlines now operate. Egypt banned the operation of the aircraft.

Earlier in the day, an Ethiopian Airlines spokesman said that the black boxes of the Boeing 737 Max 8 would be sent to Germany for analysis. Lion Air confirmed reports it has put on hold the scheduled delivery of four of the jets.

"This evidence, together with newly refined satellite data available to FAA this morning, led to this decision".

Boeing stock dropped more than 2% in trading Wednesday afternoon after President Trump ordered the grounding of the 737 Max aircraft.

Some of the complaints appear to involve the same anti-stall system, according to a U.S. Federal Aviation Administration database.

FAA said the government shutdown in December and January did not cause any delays in software updates of Boeing aircraft.

Some aviation experts have warned that finding answers in this crash could take months.

Muilenburg called Trump after the president complained Tuesday on Twitter that planes "are becoming far too complex to fly".
