Boeing to upgrade software in 737 MAX 8 fleet in 'weeks'

Chinese state TV said eight Chinese passengers were aboard Ethiopian Airlines flight ET302 which was carrying 149 passengers and eight crew members

Canada joined the nations banning the aircraft Wednesday, which leaves the United States as the lone major nation still allowing the aircraft to fly.

"Guests can book with confidence knowing that we continue to fly throughout the network with the safety of guests and employees at the forefront", it said. The shares have tripled, boosting the company's market value by $140 billion and making Boeing the most valuable USA industrial company.

"We need to wait and see what the outcome of the investigation will be", he added.

The jets will be grounded "until further notice" because "the safety of the American people, of all people, is our paramount concern".

"Generally, one should always be erring on the side of caution when it comes to safety questions", he said from Halifax.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday afternoon that he has spoken with government and Boeing officials about the decision to issue and emergency order to ground the U.S. -made planes.

"They don't have another 24 jets just sitting parked somewhere that they can bring into service to cover it.They'll have to cancel flights", he said. "The plane rotated two times in the air, and it had some smoke coming from the back then, it hit the ground and exploded", farmer Tamrat Abera said.

US -based aircraft-tracking firm Aireon provided the satellite data to the FAA, Transport Canada and several other authorities, company spokeswoman Jessie Hillenbrand said.

"It's a awful, bad thing". Other airlines, from North America to the Middle East, kept flying the 737 MAX 8 on Monday after Boeing said it was safe. All three carriers vouched for the safety of Max aircraft on Wednesday. "What we're doing, it nearly has a simultaneous - we were coordinating with Canada", he said.

Travel website Kayak was making changes to let customers exclude specific aircraft types from searches, and booking sites were looking to reroute passengers. "We very much worked in conjunction with Canada". Air Canada's fleet of 737 Max airliners carry between 9,000 and 12,000 passengers a day.

It was the second crash of the 737 MAX the latest version of Boeing's workhorse narrow body jet that first entered service in 2017

The airline Corporate Communications Manager, Mr Chris Iwarah, said any decision about cancelling the order would be premature.

"We remain in close contact with the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and industry regulators globally".

The pilots said they were able to recover quickly following the aggressive dive by disconnecting the autopilot.

Preliminary information released by Indonesian investigators suggests they are looking at the possible role of the Max's new automated anti-stall technology as a factor in a Lion Air crash in October shortly after takeoff from Jakarta.

"We can't do it", said Germout Freitag, a spokesman for Germany's Federal Bureau of Aircraft Accident Investigation (BFU).

"There are still many facts to learn and work to be done", he said.

"This was a great loss for our country, so it is something that has really viscerally caught the attention of Canadians", Garneau said.

Ethiopian Airlines CEO Tewolde Gebremariam said their pilots had received special training.

Federal reports obtained by CNN revealed that USA pilots complained about the MAX 8 in the past. About 2 percent of American's fleet operates on the 737 Max jets and less than 5 percent of Southwest's. "Decisions such as the one taken today are hard to make, but ultimately important to ensure continued public confidence in aviation", the union said in a statement.

Aireon's space-based system can monitor data from aircraft equipped with Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) transponders.
