Indonesia’s Lion Air postpones accepting delivery of Boeing 737 MAX 8

Norwegian Air Shuttles says it will seek compensation from aircraft maker Boeing after the low-priced carrier grounded its fleet of 737 MAX 8 aircraft.

Boeing is an incredible company”, Trump said.

That means the planes will also be grounded at Pittsburgh International Airport.

Federal Transport Minister Marc Garneau attributed the bans to “new data” about similarities between Sunday’s Ethiopian Airlines crash and the October 29, 2018 Lion Air crash in Indonesia.

Ahead of the United States’ decision to ground the aircraft, many countries across the globe pulled the Boeing planes, including China, Indonesia, Germany, France and the United Kingdom. “They are all in agreement with the action”. He added all airlines and affected pilots had been notified. Elwell was formerly a senior official at the largest trade group representing U.S. airlines.

Boeing, responding to Trump’s announcement, said it “continues to have full confidence in the safety of the 737 Max” but had recommended the ban to the Federal Aviation Administration “out of an abundance of caution“.

The 737 Max is flown by airlines around the world for short trips. “It’s a bad, awful thing”.

The FAA issued a statement Wednesday saying the decision to temporarily ground the jets was based on new data from the Ethiopian crash site.

Yesterday, Canada grounded the planes after its transport minister Marc Garneau said he had received new evidence about the crash.

USA airlines that operate the 737 MAX, Southwest Airlines, American Airlines, and United Airlines, said they are working to re-book passengers. The notice also cover the Max 9, another model in the Boeing series.

The president said the USA didn’t have to ground the planes, but it was important to do so for “psychological” reasons, among other reasons.

Southwest Airlines said that the grounded jets represent 5 percent of its fleet and that it would try to keep as many flights on schedule as possible with other equipment.

The FAA was the last major authority to order airlines to stop flying the Max. He said the boxes could possibly go to the United States or to a European country closer to Ethiopia “in the interest of proximity and speed”. Canada announced it was grounding the Boeing 737 Max planes earlier in the day.

They reported difficulties similar to those that contributed to the fatal Lion Air crash in Indonesia in October. The carrier had been using five of the planes and awaiting delivery of 25 more.

At Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, Southwest Airlines passengers were expected to take the greatest hit.

At this point, we really do not know.

Ethiopian Airlines spokesman Asrat Begashaw said it was still unclear what happened on Sunday, but its pilot had reported control issues as opposed to external factors such as birds.

Trump cited “new information” that had come to light in the ongoing investigation into the incident.

Early on Wednesday morning, the DGCA issued a 4pm deadline for all Boeing 737-MAX 8 aircraft in India to be grounded. The pilots didn’t understand what they were doing and were powerless to prevent a crash. “Those relate to the specific behavior of this specific type of aircraft“.
