Boeing Has Grounded All Boeing 737 Max Planes Worldwide Over Safety Fears

Air Canada has 24 MAX 8 aircraft, which it uses mainly for domestic and US routes, and cancelled London-bound flights from Halifax and St. John's, N.L., after the United Kingdom banned all Boeing MAX 8 jets from its airspace.

A lengthy grounding of Max jets would place a cash burden on carriers, but airlines will likely seek to recover funds from Boeing, according to a report by Macquarie Research.

Boeing 737 MAX 8 and 9 planes will remain grounded for "weeks" at a minimum until a software upgrade could be tested and installed in all of the planes, USA lawmakers said on Thursday.

The company added that it's Caribbean Airlines' global aviation consultants, attorneys, and management are closely monitoring the situation and will take all required steps to continue to safeguard the airline, its customers and staff.

A Max 8 operated by Ethiopian Airlines crashed on Sunday shortly after takeoff from Addis Ababa bound for Nairobi, killing 157 people, including 18 Canadians.

We sincerely thank all stakeholders for the continued confidence placed in the National Airline of Trinidad and Tobago.

Garneau says he made the decision after finding a possible but unproven similarity between the Ethiopian Airlines crash last week and a Lion Air crash in October.

Garuda Indonesia's chief executive said there is a "possibility" the airline will cancel its orders of Boeing Co's 737 MAXs, with the final decision depending on what the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) does.

Air Canada and WestJet Airlines Ltd. say they don't know how long the plane will be banned, after deadly crashes of the Max 8 in Ethiopia and Indonesia within five months.

Ethiopian investigators have now sent the black boxes to Paris to be analyzed - almost three days after they were recovered from the crash site.

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration issued an emergency order grounding the planes Wednesday.

The FAA's directive on Monday said that Boeing is updating the maneuvering system software, meaning that the system still poses potential flight risks.

The company continues its efforts "to understand the cause of the accidents in partnership with the investigators, deploy safety enhancements and help ensure this does not happen again", he said in a statement.

One said the flight crew reviewed the incident "at length. but can't think of any reason the aircraft would pitch nose-down so aggressively".

Questions about the Lion Air crash have honed in on an automated stall prevention system, the MCAS, created to automatically point the plane's nose downwards if it is in danger of stalling.

The Ethiopian Airlines pilots reported similar difficulties before their aircraft plunged to the ground as they tried to return to the airport.

In addition to Lion Air's alleged split from Boeing, several other companies are reconsidering their own ties with the American company. More than 40 other countries had already banned operation of the narrow-body plane by Tuesday night. He said the FAA has 'always been a very cooperative, data-driven group, and now that seems to have kind of gone to the wayside'.

"It is hard to get a system to work seamlessly with human beings", he told AFP.
