The Ethiopia Airlines and Lion Air flights both used 737 Max-8 aircraft.

Since the jets were grounded, North American carriers have been wrestling with customer calls and flight cancellations.

Meanwhile, after an apparent tussle over where the investigation should be held, the flight data and cockpit voice recorders from the Ethiopian Airlines 737 MAX 8 that crashed earlier this week have been handed over to France's Bureau of Enquiry and Analysis for Civil Aviation Safety (BEA).

The company added that it's Caribbean Airlines' worldwide aviation consultants, attorneys, and management are closely monitoring the situation and will take all required steps to continue to safeguard the airline, its customers and staff.

Flight ET 302, heading to Nairobi from Addis Ababa, crashed about 50km outside the Ethiopian capital six minutes after taking off.

We sincerely thank all stakeholders for the continued confidence placed in the National Airline of Trinidad and Tobago.

A software fix for the 737 MAX that Boeing has been working on since the Lion Air crash in October in Indonesia will take months to complete, the FAA said on Wednesday.

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) ordered the temporary grounding of all 737 MAX aircraft operated by US airlines or in US airspace on Wednesday.

Air Canada and WestJet Airlines Ltd. say they don't know how long the plane will be banned, after deadly crashes of the Max 8 in Ethiopia and Indonesia within five months.

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration issued an emergency order grounding the planes Wednesday.

"We service several of the Canadian operators so, they reached out to us to see if we had places for them to park the aircraft and, of course, we help out our customers just like everybody else does", says Robertson. In a March 13 statement, Boeing said it respected the FAA's latest decision.

There is a back and forth regarding investigations to unravel the exact cause of the March 10 Ethiopian Airline crash in the town of Bishoftu in the Oromia region. However, the FAA said this week it had mandated that Boeing update its flight software and training on the aircraft.

According to the flight data recorder, the pilots of Lion Air Flight 610 struggled to control the aircraft as the MCAS repeatedly pushed the nose down following takeoff.

Ethiopian Airlines CEO Tewolde GebreMariam said Sunday the flight's captain Yared Mulugeta Getachew, 29, was an experienced aviator with more than 8,000 flight hours.

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.

Andrew Hunter, a defence industry expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, said that while Boeing and the FAA had good track records on addressing safety concerns, sometimes the combination of automated systems and humans did not work smoothly.
