Air India plans to lease five Boeing 777s from Jet Airways

Lion Air Boeing

Budget carrier SpiceJet Ltd said on Friday it will prioritise hiring employees of Jet Airways Ltd who are losing their jobs after the crisis-hit airline halted all flight operations indefinitely this week.

In the tweeted video, he said Boeing carried out a flight test of the updated software with its technical and engineering leaders on board the airplane on Tuesday.

There was worldwide consternation with Boeing after its Max 737 plane flown by Ethiopian Airlines crashed six minutes after takeoff from the Bole International Airport, killing all 157 passengers and crew on board.

Boeing is reprogramming 737 MAX software to prevent erroneous data from triggering an anti-stall system that came under scrutiny following the two deadly nose-down crashes.

Earlier this week, Canadian Transport Minister Marc Garneau reiterated the need for further simulator training to ensure that pilots will have adequate skills and knowledge in flying the Boeing Max 737 jets.

And when there is construction, he said, "the building is exposed to all sorts of unsafe activity". Police also took images of the destruction using drones, in case it is altered by wind or rain.

"They will conduct additional test and production flights in the coming weeks as we continue to demonstrate that we've identified and met all certification requirements".

Canada has already taken measures on pilot training following the Lion Air crash, working with WestJet Airlines, Air Canada and Sunwing to require a five-step memorized pilot checklist for a runaway stabilizer.

Due to these two major jet crashes, countries across the planet were essentially forced to prohibit the flight of Boeing 737 Max 8 jets into or out of their jurisdictions as a way to keep people safe.

Canada's call for obligatory training time illustrates the challenges faced by the FAA panel, which includes foreign regulators, in securing a common global blueprint for the ungrounding of the 737 MAX.

Boeing Co. has said it is close to a significant milestone that's one of the last steps before it submits to US regulators a patch for anti-stall software linked to two fatal 737 Max accidents.
