Caribbean Airlines reassures public amid concerns over Boeing Max 8 planes

Boeing Has Grounded All Boeing 737 Max Planes Worldwide Over Safety Fears Boeing Grounds Entire Fleet Of 737 Max Planes After New Crash Evidence Emerges

According to flight tracking website, FlightRadar24, all Boeing 737 MAX jets have now been grounded.

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced airworthiness notifications for the Max 8 after crashes involving an Indonesian Lion Air plane in October a year ago and an Ethiopian Airlines plane on Sunday.

The statement follows mounting concern about the safety of the Boeing 737 MAX-8 aircraft in the aftermath of Sunday's Ethiopian Airways crash in which all 157 passengers were killed.

The American regulator had initially refused to ban the 737 MAX, but changed its mind after "new evidence" was found at the crash site in Ethiopia.

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.

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

Boeing is preparing fixes to anti-stall software that baffled pilots of the downed Lion Air jet by pitching the plane's nose down dozens of times before it crashed in the Java Sea off the coast of Indonesia in October.

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

Former FAA assistant administrator Scott Brenner told CBS News the agency still should have waited for data from the Ethiopian jet's black boxes before making its decision. He said the FAA has 'always been a very cooperative, data-driven group, and now that seems to have kind of gone to the wayside'.

Former NTSB investigator Jeff Guzzetti claimed the investigation of the black boxes should have happened much sooner, and the fact that it didn't is 'negligent in my view'.

Ethiopian investigators have now sent the black boxes to Paris to be analyzed - almost three days after they were recovered from the crash site.

'Time is of the essence, ' Guzzetti said. But the pilot had reported difficulties and asked to return to Addis Ababa, Ethiopian Airlines has said.

French air crash investigators have revealed a severely damaged black box from the doomed Ethiopian Airlines crash.

Ethiopian Airlines said earlier it would send the two cockpit voice and data recorders overseas for analysis.

It is not yet clear whether the anti-stall system was the cause of the Ethiopian Airlines crash.

BEA investigators are also often called upon when an Airbus plane has a problem anywhere in the world, because the aviation manufacturer is based in France.

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

Addis Ababa said on Wednesday it was sending the Flight Data Recorder (FDR) and the Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) to France because the East African country does not have the required facilities to carry out the detailed analysis required to determine the cause of the deadly disaster.
