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

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

Budget airline Thai Lion Air is the only carrier that uses 737 Max aircraft for flights to Taiwan, Lin said.

A small number of Boeing's Max 9s are also operating.

Experts say other possible causes of the crashes are being investigated, including other malfunctioning systems and pilot error.

Addis Ababa said on Wednesday it was sending the Flight Data Recorder (FDR) and the Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) to France because the East African country does not have the required facilities to carry out the detailed analysis required to determine the cause of the deadly disaster.

The "airworthiness directive" took effect at 7pm, Flight Standards Division Director Clark Lin (林俊良) said, adding that it is a preventive measure and is subject to change depending on the results of an investigation into the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines Max 8 jet and subsequent recommendations from Boeing.

Investigations are continuing into both of the crashes.

As analysis of the air tragedy gets underway in Paris, the French air accident investigation authority, known by its French acronym BEA, shared an image of the mangled flight data recorder. The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board sent three investigators to help.

He told Reuters in February that the carrier wanted to swap some of its order for MAX 8s for widebody Boeing models.

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.

The Boeing 737 Max has been the fastest-selling aircraft in Boeing's history, with more than 4,500 ordered by 100 different operators globally.

Flight ET 302, heading to Nairobi from Addis Ababa, crashed about 50km outside the Ethiopian capital six minutes after taking off. Blue plastic sheeting covered the wreckage of the plane. Two Israelis were killed in the crash, and members of an emergency response team from the country said they are frustrated because they have not been able to access the crash site. "They have to find out what it is".

The Max is the latest upgrade to the Boeing 737, which has been flying since the late 1960s. "Moreover, the larger risk is the reputational concern for Boeing".

The MCAS, which stands for Manoeuvring Characteristics Augmentation System, is created to prevent the plane stalling when making steep turns under manual control.

The airline, which has 34 of the 72 US -based Max planes that were in operation, cancelled 39 flights Thursday due to the grounding.
