Trump, Ethiopian PM exchange condolences after plane crash

The crash of Flight ET 302 minutes into its flight to Nairobi on March 10 killed all onboard and caused the worldwide grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft model involved in the disaster

Boeing plans to release upgraded software for its 737 MAX in a week to 10 days, sources familiar with the matter said. By 8:44 AM the plane crashed in a field outside of Bishoftu, Ethiopia. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because Boeing's conversations with airline officials were not meant to be made public.

The black boxes from the Ethiopian craft were sent to France's BEA air safety agency this week to determine the cause of the accident.

Air Canada and United Airlines on Friday became the first major carriers in North America to warn of negative impacts on business due to the grounding of Boeing Co›s 737 MAX planes.

Dagmawit said it would take up to six months to identify remains, and family members were being encouraged to submit DNA samples in Addis Ababa or at Ethiopian Airlines offices overseas.

"If there were to be anything defective in terms of the plane or any of its components, then it would be possible to bring a claim against the manufacturer as well as the airline", the head of law firm Irwin Mitchell's travel litigation group, Clive Garner, said.

Saudi Arabian airline flyadeal will wait until investigations into two Boeing 737 MAX crashes are completed before deciding whether to proceed with a signed order for 30 of the jets, reported Reuters, citing its chief executive.

Boeing and US air safety regulators have been at odds over how much pilot training will be required along with the software fix, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday. The possibility that the same scenario occurred in Ethiopia has prompted precautionary groundings of the plane worldwide.

I am sure he will know the buttons to push this week. "We know that's something we'll have to manage". He has changed the psychology of the Welsh team and public.

Montreal-based Air Canada has said it operated seventy-five 737 MAX flights daily out of a total schedule of approximately 1,600 flights system-wide. Others carriers say it's too early for them to say whether they will because they can not yet estimate lost revenue and extra costs.

"All airlines in the world should be well aware of the problem", Krause said. It had expected to expand its fleet of 24 MAX jets to 36 by the end of 2019.

"They called us to give us a report on bodies and the reasons for the crash but there was no information", Shariff said.

The stock continued to struggle on Wednesday after the United States and Canada chose to join in the grounding of Boeing 737 Max jets.

In the U.S., Southwest is likely to be most affected because its 34 Max 8s represent almost 5 per cent of the carrier's fleet and a slightly higher percentage of the airline's passenger-carrying capacity. The victims of the crash came from 35 countries.

Helane Becker, an airlines analyst with the Cowen Research financial services company said if the planes are grounded for a long time, ticket prices could rise because there will be fewer seats for sale if demand remains steady.
