Airlines wrestle with calls, cancellations after Boeing MAX fleet grounded

The Boeing 737 Max fleet of aircraft are the latest in the company's successful 737 line.

Inside Story: How safe is Boeing's 737 Max 8 aircraft? 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.

The Federal Aviation Administration, which ordered the planes grounded in the US on Wednesday, said new satellite data and other evidence showed similar movements by the Ethiopian and Indonesian planes.

"First we will try to read the data", he said, adding that he did not know what condition the black boxes were in.

Boeing said it supports the grounding of its planes as a precautionary step, while reiterating its "full confidence" in the safety of the 737 Max.

In a key step toward unearthing the cause of the Ethiopian Airlines crash, flight recorders from the shattered plane arrived Thursday in France for analysis, although the agency in charge of the review said it was unclear whether the data could be retrieved.

Southwest and American each said on Thursday they were flying empty MAX aircraft to be parked at different maintenance locations during the ban.

Norwegian Air has said it will seek compensation from Boeing for costs and lost revenue after grounding its 737 Max fleet. "We are doing everything we can to understand the cause of the accidents in partnership with the investigators, deploy safety enhancements and help ensure this does not happen again", the company added.

Elwell said Wednesday the FAA was hopeful the software update would be ready "within a couple of months" and expressed optimism it would mitigate risks experienced by pilots.

By the end of January, Boeing had delivered 350 of the Max 8 models.

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

The Ethiopian Airlines plane was less than four months old when it went down six minutes into its flight to Nairobi.

The accounts of the recent crashes were echoed in concerns registered by USA pilots on how the MAX 8 behaves.

He also noted that investigators have not yet drawn a clear link between the system that malfunctioned prior to the Lion Air crash and the Ethiopia accident.
