Should the USA ground all flights by Boeing 737 Max jets?

"This safety notice restricts commercial passenger flights from any operator of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 and MAX 9 variant aircraft whether domestic or foreign from arriving, departing, or overflying Canadian airspace", announced Garneau at a news conference Wednesday morning that started 45 minutes late.

The U.S.is increasingly alone in defending the American-made jets since the Federal Aviation Administration deemed the 737 Max to be "airworthy" earlier this week.

US Representative Rick Larsen said the software upgrade would take a few weeks to complete, and installing it on every plane would take "at least through April".

VietJet is monitoring the situation and will reach a decision on whether to go ahead with its purchase following "official conclusions" from global regulators and the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam, it said in a statement Wednesday.

Its shares were up by less than 1 percent Wednesday. Boeing shares were down 0.5 per cent to US$375.09 on Thursday afternoon.

He said that the planes would remain banned pending the determination of the actual cause of the crash in Ethiopia and pending the outcome of the response of the manufacturers of the aircraft.

Two-thirds of the 737 MAX aircraft have been grounded globally, and Ethiopian Airlines CEO Tewolde Gebremariam told the BBC the world's biggest planemaker should ground all such craft until their safety is established.

"So, we have issued directive that no operator with Boeing 737 Max 8 or Max 9 should operate into and outside our airports and this is being carried out", he said.

Aireon's space-based system can monitor data from aircraft equipped with Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) transponders.

"There is no capacity here so the black box will be sent elsewhere for analysis". The carrier, a unit of Saudi Arabian Airlines, said it's waiting on the results of the investigation.

Ethiopian investigators likely avoided sending the data to the US because the FAA certified the airworthiness of the Max and has a relationship with manufacturer Boeing, said Goelz, who is now an aviation consultant. But if the crash was caused by pilot error, then the problem could be corrected by training, and the grounding could be short, Goelz said.

"The pilot said it's not too high, so he countered that", he continued, gesturing as if to pull back on the yoke, or the control wheel that allows the pilot to manually lift the nose.
