Sources told CBS News investigators at the crash scene recovered the Boeing 737 Max's jackscrew, which helps raise or lower the nose. Engineers are making changes to the system created to prevent an aerodynamic stall if sensors detect that the jet's nose is pointed too high and its speed is too slow.

Boeing plans to release upgraded software for the 737 MAX in a week to 10 days, sources familiar with the matter said.

Boeing already faces lawsuits over the Lion Air crash, and lawyers say the second crash strengthens their argument that Boeing knew the plane was defective and let it fly anyway. "And I would put it on the airlines at this juncture to have better trained and better explained to the pilots get them the training they need so that this problem didn't occur again".
Experts say pilots typically ask to climb when experiencing problems near the ground in order to gain margin for maneuver and avoid any hard terrain.
United Airlines, which has 14 Max 9s that are parked, canceled five flights scheduled for the planes on Friday and used other planes to add four flights to Hawaii for displaced passengers, said spokeswoman Erin Benson.
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.
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. All 189 people onboard were killed.
