Some KCI flights reassigned after Boeing planes grounded

Boeing Has Grounded All Boeing 737 Max Planes Worldwide Over Safety Fears

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) ordered the temporary grounding of all 737 MAX aircraft operated by US airlines or in US airspace on Wednesday.

France's BEA air safety agency confirmed it has received the recorders from the plane that crashed shortly after takeoff from Addis Ababa on Sunday, killing all 157 people aboard.

At a minimum, aviation experts say, the plane maker will need to finish updating software that might have played a role in the Lion Air crash.

The MCAS, which stands for Manoeuvring Characteristics Augmentation System, is created to prevent the plane stalling when making steep turns under manual control.

A Lion Air flight on a 737 Max 8 crashed in October in Indonesia, taking the lives of its 189 passengers and its crew.

Mr GebreMariam said all employees were given new training after the Lion Air disaster.

Flight recorders from a doomed Ethiopian Airlines flight arrived in France for analysis Thursday as frustrated relatives of the people killed stormed out of a meeting with airline officials in Addis Ababa.

The European Union and India are the latest countries or blocs to ban the plane from flying over their airspace to ensure passenger safety.

The ban is indefinite and will remain in place until the agency makes a new decision on the matter.

Imagine Francisco Lindor or Jose Ramirez at the plate needing to hit 13 home runs to win the derby and win the bonus money. Teams must designate before each game whether a player will be used as a pitcher or position player before each game.

'You're grounding a class of aircraft base on nothing but political pressure.

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

The Federal Aviation Administration said findings from the crash site near Addis and "newly refined satellite data" warranted "further investigation of the possibility of a shared cause for the two incidents".

'Time is of the essence, ' Guzzetti said.

It is not yet clear which problems Captain Getachew experienced, but French investigators pledged to find answers as they took charge of the aircraft's black boxes.

American Airlines has said it will start ferrying some of their Max planes back to their bases today.

In Ethiopia, which lacks the forensic capabilities of other countries, a spokesman for Ethiopian Airlines said the black box voice and data recorders recovered on Monday had been sent overseas for analysis.

The National Transportation Safety Board in the United States, where Boeing is based, said it will send three investigators to France to help download and analyse the flight recorders.

The BEA isn't saying how long it will take to analyse the recorders - which are actually orange, despite their nickname.
