All Boeing 737 Max Planes Grounded ‘Immediately,’ Trump Says

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

"I didn't want to take any chances".

The president insisted the announcement was coordinated with aviation officials in Canada, U.S. carriers and aircraft manufacturer Boeing. But in a statement Wednesday, Boeing said it supported the government's action. He did not elaborate.

Sunday's tragic crash of ET302 comes just as Ethiopian Airlines has been riding a wave of global investment, expansion and optimism. Garneau, a former astronaut who flew in the space shuttle, emphasized that the data is not conclusive but crossed a threshold that prompted Canada to bar the Max 8.

Jason Scarrotts, a father of two young children, said he was on the phone with Air Canada for 90 minutes before speaking with an agent to rebook their Max 8 flight from Vancouver to Palm Springs, only to be disconnected. "I'm sure they'll look at it and see where we go from here", a man said. This is not the proof that is the same root problem. Some cited customers frightened by the sight of Sunday's crash in clear weather that killed all 157 people on board. A Canadian family of six were among the dead.

Garneau said affected travellers should contact their airlines to find out what to do, he added. Some aviation experts have warned that finding answers in the crash could take months.

Gizmodo has reached out to Boeing for more details but did not immediately get a response.

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

Though there is no proof of links, multiple nations, including the United States and the European Union, have suspended the 737 MAX.

All Max 8 and 9 models in the air "will be grounded" today as soon as they land, Trump told reporters.

Breaking precedent, regulators in China grounded the revamped narrow-body plane before an worldwide team of investigators had a chance to review flight data and cockpit voice recorders recovered after a brand-new Ethiopian Airlines 737 Max 8 plunged into a hillside minutes after takeoff Sunday. "This aircraft model represents only a small fraction of the domestic fleet, and several other countries have already taken this important step, including China and Indonesia".

Even President Donald Trump weighed in, tweeting that additional "complexity creates danger" in modern aircraft and hinders pilots from making "split second decisions" to ensure passengers' safety. All three carriers vouched for the safety of Max aircraft on Wednesday before Trump's ban.

The company confirmed it had for several months "been developing a flight control software enhancement for the 737 MAX, created to make an already safe aircraft even safer". Egypt banned the operation of the aircraft.

The Canadian decision to restrict the narrow-body aircraft is expected to bring headaches for Canada's major airlines and their passengers. The Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System, triggered by an erroneous sensor reading, had baffled pilots by pushing the Lion Air plane downward dozens of times before it crashed.

Fennell said that because of the airport's size it could be used to store aircraft during the investigation. MCAS does not control the aeroplane in normal flight; it improves the behaviour of the aeroplane in a non-normal part of the operating envelope. "What we're doing, it nearly has a simultaneous - we were coordinating with Canada", he said.
