Norwegian Air to seek compensation from Boeing for MAX groundings

  • Pilots didn’t trust the Boeing Max 8 and now flyers are rejecting them

On Sunday, an Ethiopian Airlines Max crashed, killing 157 people.

People from 35 countries died in the Ethiopian Airlines crash six minutes after takeoff from Ethiopia's capital for Nairobi.

"It got really bumpy", she said.

Mr. Trump said the USA government had received "new information and physical evidence" both from the crash site and other places, as well as "a couple of other complaints", which led to the decision.

An airline might fly its aircraft more hours each day, perhaps starting each day at 5 a.m. instead of 6, and flying until midnight instead of 11 a.m. A 175-seat Boeing 737 Max 8 flying cross country generates many more ASMs than a smaller Boeing 737-700, with 143 seats, flying form Chicago to St. Louis.

Lion Air has confirmed reports it has put on hold the scheduled delivery of four Boeing 737 Max 8 jets while it waits for the outcome of the Indonesian investigation into its October crash that killed 189 people.

"Southwest Airlines is immediately complying with today's FAA requirement for all USA airlines to ground the Boeing 737 MAX 8", Southwest said in a statement. "We are doing everything we can to understand the cause of the accidents in partnership with the investigators, deploy safety enhancements and help ensure this does not happen again".

He said that "the evidence we found on the ground made it even more likely the flight path was very close to Lion Air's".

Trump told reporters that he had spoken with Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, Acting FAA Administrator Daniel Elwell and Muilenburg before making the call to ground 737 Max 8 and Max 9 model planes in the U.S.

The announcement that Canada has closed off airspace to Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 passenger jets has left some would-be passengers fretting over the status of their travel plans.

Up until today, the FAA position was that a review had showed "no systemic performance issues" and that there was no basis for grounding the aircraft.

The ex-player still wasn't happy but at least remarked to the guilty party, "You've probably done me a favour there". Soon after, a forklift driver "accidentally" knocks over the statue, smashing it to pieces.

Transport Minister Marc Garneau said Canada had received new satellite data on Wednesday morning that resulted in the safety notice.

The boss of Ethiopian Airlines has called for the grounding of all Boeing's 737 Max 8 aircraft until it is established they are safe to fly.

"You can flex up in utilization in the aircraft", Mann said. But a brand is at stake as well.

They fell by 4.8 percent in early trade on Wednesday but later recovered to trade up 2.7 percent by 1246 GMT.

The planemaker has lost more than $26 billion (€22 billion) in market value since the crash - a rare slump considering investors are not really known to be spooked by such tragedies. It now has 10 Max 8 planes in its fleet.

But because United and American don't fly many Max flights, DeNardi, said he doubts they would ask two of the bigger third-party operators - Skywest Airlines and Mesa Airlines - to fly more.

Stacy Sternberg, 53, a scientist who lives in Chicago and Las Vegas, tried not to think about the model of plane she was on, but said turbulence reminded her during the flight.

"The pilot reported flight control problems and requested to turn back".

Two US pilots reported separate incidents involving the 737 Max's automatic anti-stalling system in November.

Shortly after, and possibly because, details of that telephone conversation surfaced, and with Canada bringing down the ban hammer, the FAA was allowed to ground 737 Maxes.
