Trump Grounds All U.S. Boeing 737 Max Planes

"The safety of the American people, of all people, is our paramount concern", Trump said, adding that the grounding would take effect as soon as the planes landed and would continue until further notice. The biggest impact could be on future deliveries given Boeing has almost 5,000 more 737 Max planes on order.

It now has 10 Max 8 planes in its fleet.

On Sunday, a Boeing 737 Max 8, operated by Ethiopian Airlines, crashed minutes after takeoff from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, killing all 157 people from more than 30 countries on board.

However, two fatal crashes in five months have prompted intense scrutiny over the model's control systems.

He said satellite data suggested similarities between the flight profiles of the Ethiopian jet and that of a Lion Air plane of the same type that crashed in Indonesia past year.

Gillibrand through a statement told the outlet that the investigation lined up with her beliefs. He was reported to be close to the senator after spending years driving her and her children.

The European Union, China, and Australia, among other countries, have grounded the Boeing 737 Max 8.

"We are not issuing refunds of non-refundable fares, but we are working with Customers who wish to rebook their flight to another aircraft type on a case-by-case basis".

Passenger-rights advocate Gabor Lukacs said Wednesday that it would be prudent for Garneau to suspend use of the aircraft until questions are answered about what caused the Ethiopian crash.

In a separate statement, Norwegian said it would deploy one of its larger Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft to operate its daily route from Dublin to Stewart airport north of New York City, replacing the grounded MAX.

I am sure everyone is keen to see the results of both investigations, so that targeted action can be taken to assure the ongoing safety of flight.

However, on Wednesday, the FAA said in an emergency order that an investigation into two deadly air accidents involving Boeing 737 Max aircraft had discovered "some similarities", which led to a temporary grounding of the entire 737 Max fleet in the US.

Boeing Chief Executive Dennis Muilenburg is also confident about the safety of the 737 Max, Reuters news agency reported, citing Muilenburg's email to employees. They should notify the passengers before. Both airlines said they would immediately comply with the FAA order.

The U.S., meanwhile, has continued flying the planes, with the Federal Aviation Administration saying the aircraft are safe to fly. Democratic senators Elizabeth Warren and Richard Blumenthal called for flights to be stopped, as have Republican Senators Mitt Romney and Ted Cruz.

Ethiopian Airlines spokesman Asrat Begashaw said the pilot asked to return to Addis Ababa, where the flight had departed.

The new variant of the world's most-sold modern passenger aircraft was viewed as the likely workhorse for airlines for decades. But October's Lion Air crash in Indonesia sparked a debate on automation, particularly over a software system created to push the plane down to stop a stall during flight.
