Aviation authority bans Boeing 737 MAX flights in Russian airspace

  • Wings clipped: No more Boeing 737/8 at Kempegowda International Airport

"The Ministry has ordered the grounding of all Boeing 737/8 Max aircraft by 4 pm on Wednesday".

The crash of Boeing Co's 737 MAX 8 passenger jet in Ethiopia raises the chances that families of the 157 victims, even non-U.S. residents, will be able to sue in US courts, where payouts are larger than in other countries, some legal experts said.

Russia's Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsia) has banned all Boeing 737 MAX flights in Russian airspace until further notice, the agency's head Alexander Neradko told reporters. He said the decision was based on new evidence that showed the plane that crashed Sunday in Ethiopia behaved similarly to another 737 Max that crashed five months ago in Indonesia, operated by Lion Air.

A 737 Max 8 used by Ethiopian Airlines crashed soon after take-off on March 10 from Addis Ababa, killing all 157 passengers and crew.

The US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is also sending three investigators to assist.

Previously, Lion Air Group chose to postpone the delivery of four more Boeing 737 MAX 8 airplanes.

The MAX series is Boeing's fastest-selling model, but it is still relatively new with fewer than 500 in service.

The disaster shook the aviation world, with multiple countries denying entry to the Boeing 737 Max 8 model.

In two anonymous reports on flights just after the Lion Air disaster, pilots disconnected the autopilot and corrected the plane's trajectory.

It was unclear if U.S. transport authorities review the database or investigated the incidents. Japan became the latest nation to suspend the planes on Thursday, and Garuda Indonesia said it may cancel its order for 20 of the aircraft, depending the FAA's position.

Investigators have drawn similarities between the crashes, and focused their attention on the aircrafts' anti-stall system.

Speaking in a "panicky voice", the doomed aircraft's captain requested permission to return to the airport nearly immediately after takeoff as the plane "accelerated to abnormal speed", the newspaper reported Thursday, citing a person who had reviewed the air traffic communications.

The Ethiopian Airlines pilots reported similar difficulties before their aircraft plunged to the ground as they tried to return to the airport.

Boeing was criticized after the Lion Air crash for allegedly failing to adequately inform 737 pilots about the functioning of the stall prevention system.

Mr GebreMariam added that the pilot had an excellent flying record and had clocked up more than 8,000 hours in the air.

BEA said any information about the investigation would come from Ethiopian Airlines, which itself tweeted that it would only communicate through social media and its website.

The Ethiopian Airlines plane was less than four months old when it went down six minutes into its flight to Nairobi.
