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

The data from one of them, the cockpit voice recorder, has already been extracted and handed over to Ethiopian authorities, the BEA said Saturday.

As families wait for the results from the investigation into the cause of the crash, Ethiopian Airlines is planning to hold a service on Sunday in Addis Ababa, at the Kidist Selassie, or Holy Trinity Cathedral, where numerous country's past rulers are buried beneath its pink stone spires.

Family members are being give a 1 kilogram (2.2 pound) sack of scorched earth taken from the crash sites, said two family members.

Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 plummeted into a field minutes after taking off from Addis Ababa bound for Nairobi last Sunday, killing all on board.

US authorities say information from the wreckage in Ethiopia and data on its flight path show some similarities.

Legal experts said even non-U.S. families of the Ethiopia victims may be able to sue Chicago-based Boeing in the United States - where payouts are larger - as eight of the dead were American and plaintiffs may argue liability hinges on system design and safety decisions made by executives. The causes of the accident are yet to be investigated.

The company revealed that it began working on the upgrade after another 737 Max jet operated by Lion Air crashed last October, killing all 189 passengers and crew members that were onboard. The plane's nose was suddenly pointing down.

The 737 Max has flight-control software that can automatically tilt the stabilizers if sensors detect that the plane is in danger of losing aerodynamic lift from the wings, which is necessary to stay aloft.

The death penalty is an archaic and unjust system, disproportionately condemning people of color and those with disabilities. As recently as 2016, a measure to abolish the death penalty failed , and another, aimed at speeding up executions, passed.

Boeing said that after ten days, it will have fixed its MCAS software for the 737 MAX aircraft.

The United States and other countries have grounded their fleets of the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.

The person said that under the victim's Jewish faith, no funeral could be held until his remains were returned, and the six-month delay was distressing for his family.

'It's a awful, bad thing, ' the president said about the crash. All 157 people from 35 countries who were on board were killed.

Boeing and US air safety regulators have been at odds over how much pilot training will be required along with the software fix, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.

The Boeing 737 MAX is positioned as the latest in the company's successful 737 line, along with the MAX 7, 8, 9 and 10 models.

Despite Boeing and US airlines insisting the planes were safe to fly, the FAA grounded the planes Wednesday.

Helane Becker, an airlines analyst with the Cowen Research financial services company said if the planes are grounded for a long time, ticket prices could rise because there will be fewer seats for sale if demand remains steady.
