Canada closes skies to Boeing 737 Max 8 aircrafts

Trump said Wednesday that the FAA would be making the announcement soon to ground the planes.

Boeing did not make direct reference to Sunday's air crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 while announcing the software upgrade plan on Monday, but it offered its "deepest condolences to those who lost loved ones" on Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302.

These similarities "exceed a certain threshold in our minds with respect to the possible cause of what happened in Ethiopia. This is not conclusive, but it is something that points possibly in that direction, and at this point we feel that threshold has been crossed".

"If we identify an issue that affects safety, the FAA will take immediate and appropriate action".

Hours later, U.S. President Donald Trump announced at the White House that he issued an emergency order to ground the planes.

He said the multi-million dollar deal signed between Air Peace and the American aircraft manufacturer, The Boeing Company, on September 13, 2018 for the delivery of 10 brand new B737 MAX 800 aircraft, was still on. "Planes that are in the air ... will be grounded upon landing at the destination".

Members of the Democrat Party in the U.S. initially accused the Trump Administration of dragging its feet on grounding the Max-8 jets to protect Boeing profits - the company donated US$1 million to Trump's inauguration and Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg is a regular confidant of the President.

Garneau said satellite tracking data received overnight suggests possible "similarities" between the Ethiopian Airlines and Lion Air crashes. The doomed plane was headed from the Ethiopian capital to Nairobi, Kenya, when it crashed six minutes after takeoff.

"This is not the proof that it's the same root problem". "It could be something else".

He did not specifically mention the crashes but said that "I don't know about you, but I don't want Albert Einstein to be my pilot".

Tesla Plans Price Hikes To Keep Struggling Stores Open
Tesla is still sticking with its plan for all orders for its vehicles to take place online - even in its brick-and-mortar outlets. As a result, Tesla said it will need to raise prices on its costlier models by about 3% on average worldwide.

"There must be a rigorous investigation into why the aircraft, which has critical safety systems that did not exist on prior models, was certified without requiring additional pilot training", he said.

"It's a brand new plane, and if it's for our safety, then I think it's a good thing", a woman said.

Air Canada said in a statement that it would comply immediately with the order, and attempt to rebook passengers from the Max jets, which typically have more than 160 seats.

Garneau said people with flights affected by the grounding should contact their airlines to find out what to do.

The agency said in a statement it was "taking every step necessary to ensure the safety of passengers". He said he hopes the planes will be flying safely within weeks.

The Winnipeg Airports Authority said Wednesday it has been watching the situation closely and was getting ready in case the decision was made to ground the Boeing 737 Max 8 in Canada.

American Airlines canceled three between Miami and Orlando, and Southwest canceled a flight from Washington, D.C., to Orlando.

Air Canada and rival WestJet Airlines operate a total of 37 Boeing 737 MAX jets.

What does this crash mean for the 74-year-old airline, which has grounded all of the Boeing 737 Max 8 planes in its fleet?

British regulators said they based their decision on the fact that "we do not now have sufficient information from the flight data recorder we have".
