Ethiopia Crash Investigation Needs 'considerable' Time: Minister

Boeing declined to comment and Charles Bickers, an airline spokesman, referred the AP to the company's previous statement, which said only that the upgrade would be completed "in the coming weeks".

Regulators have grounded the 737 MAX around the world, and the US planemaker has halted deliveries of the several thousand on order for a model meant to be the future industry workhorse. On Wednesday, US regulators joined the global chorus by grounding the plane, citing evidence showing the Ethiopian Airlines flight may have experienced the same problem as the plane that went down five months ago off Indonesia.

"That is way too fast", the source said.

The two sources, who declined to be named, said part of a stabilizer found in the Ethiopian wreckage was in a unusual position similar to the Lion Air plane.

In Ethiopia today, Transport Minister Dagmawit Moges said that it would take between five and six months to identify the victims of the Ethiopian Airlines jet. 'Boeing is an incredible company they are working very very hard right now, and hopefully they'll very quickly come up with the answer, but until they do the planes are grounded'.

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

In the Lion Air crash, investigators are examining the behaviour of a new anti-stall system installed on the 737 MAX that led to the plane gaining and losing altitude as the pilots fought for control against the automated system.

"All airlines in the world should be well aware of the problem", Krause said. Those numbers depend on how long the planes end up parked.

Later in the week the U.K. and India joined in the wave of groundings, and by Wednesday evening President Donald Trump added the United States to the growing list, as aviation officials await the results of an investigation into the latest crash. An Ethiopian government official who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to reporters also confirmed the deliveries of soil. It had expected to expand its fleet of 24 MAX jets to 36 by the end of 2019.

Air Canada and United Airlines on Friday became the first major carriers in North America to warn of negative financial implications to business as a effect of the grounding of the Boeing planes. The airline said in a securities filing Friday that the financial and operational impact of the grounding will increase if it lasts into the peak summer travel season. "The next steps will take some time", he said. Southwest experienced a bookings decline last year fall after one person was killed by a piece of engine debris on a flight last year. The Rev. George Kageche Mukua was one of 32 Kenyans killed when Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 faltered shortly after takeoff from Addis Ababa and crashed, a numbingly high toll on a flight carrying people from 35 countries.
