These countries are grounding the Boeing 737 MAX 8

Boeing 737

Canada had made the same decision to ground Boeing 737 Max aircraft hours before the USA, citing the fresh evidence as well. The aircraft are similar, though United's models are larger.

In a statement Wednesday, the company said: "Southwest Airlines is immediately complying with today's FAA requirement for all USA airlines to ground the Boeing 737 MAX 8".

Trump said he made the decision following conversations with Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg and acting FAA administrator Dan Elwell after "new information" and "physical evidence" emerged on tragic incidents involving the Max 8 aircraft.

For at least two Max 8 pilots, the order should be welcome news: Pilots working for two US airlines logged complaints about the Boeing 737 Max 8 jet prior to Sunday's crash, CNN revealed on Wednesday, submitting their concerns to a federal database. The emergency order will ground 24 of American Airlines' planes.

On Sunday, an Ethiopian Airlines flight that departed from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, crashed six minutes after taking off and all 157 passengers were killed.

It said the department has been in close contact with the FAA and other the relevant organizations, including the two airlines, SpiceJet of India and Russia's Globus Airlines, that use the aircraft to operate flights into and out of Hong Kong International Airport. "We continue to consult closely with regulators around the world, airlines and aircraft manufacturers to ensure passenger safety", it Tweeted late on Tuesday. "It's a bad, awful thing", the president said of the recent crash.

Some pilots complained about the plane suddenly nosing down.

Boeing had pushed regulators and airlines to keep flying the airplanes. "As a result, training was given by Boeing, and our pilots have taken it and put it into our manuals", he said.

One pilot called the aircraft's flight manual "inadequate and nearly criminally insufficient" in a complaint that lambasted the FAA, Boeing, and the airline operating the plane. United has just 14.

More countries took action Wednesday.

Southwest likely will have more trouble.

The single-aircraft strategy carries risks, though, and Southwest, has warned about the impact of an event just like this in its annual report. Southwest, which is locked in a labor dispute with its mechanics, has had far more planes out of service for maintenance than usual in recent months.

The time line is to cater to situations where aircraft can be positioned at maintenance facilities and worldwide flights can reach their destinations, the DGCA said.

On Monday, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) explained that the agency's review of the information available showed no systemic performance issues and that therefore there wasn't a reason to ground flights. If a flight is canceled, customers may request a full refund by visiting our website.

Carrier spokeswoman Tonje Naess told The Associated Press Wednesday that the Oslo-based airline "should not have any financial burden for a brand new aircraft that will not to be used".

There is a back and forth regarding investigations to unravel the exact cause of the March 10 Ethiopian Airline crash in the town of Bishoftu in the Oromia region.
