NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine on Wednesday brushed aside concerns about the safety of the Boeing 737 Max 8, telling a Senate committee that consumers are free to change their flights if they are anxious about flying aboard the aircraft.

The Federal Aviation Administration said on Wednesday it chose to ground the model "as a result of the data gathering process and new evidence collected" at the site of the Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed 157 people on Sunday.

US travelers have expressed concerns about the aircraft after an Ethiopian Airlines plane traveling to Kenya crashed on Sunday, killing all 157 people on board. "What we can say is we don't have the capability to probe it here in Ethiopia", he said, adding that it would be sent to a European country that he did not identify.

However, on Wednesday, the FAA said in an emergency order that an investigation into two deadly air accidents involving Boeing 737 Max aircraft had discovered "some similarities", which led to a temporary grounding of the entire 737 Max fleet in the US. The biggest impact could be on future deliveries given Boeing has almost 5,000 more 737 Max planes on order. But he declined to say whether he believed they should be able to do so free of charge.

The Ethiopian Airlines flight crashed Sunday shortly after taking off from the capital, Addis Ababa, killing 157 people, including Israelis Shimon Re'em and Avraham Matsliah.

The U.S. -based Boeing has said it has no reason to pull the popular aircraft from the skies and does not intend to issue new recommendations about the aircraft to customers.

Air Canada and rival WestJet Airlines operate a total of 37 Boeing 737 Max jets.

Even so, grounding the aircraft won't cripple air travel in Orlando or across the USA, said aviation journalist Seth Kaplan. The same model crashed in a similar time frame in Indonesia last October, killing 189 people.

I am sure everyone is keen to see the results of both investigations, so that targeted action can be taken to assure the ongoing safety of flight.

This is the second time the FAA has halted flights of a Boeing plane in six years.

The Trump administration had continued to resist growing domestic and global calls to ground the 737 Max 8, even as Trump discussed the issue Tuesday in a phone call with Muilenburg.

Only charred fragments of victims remain, meaning it will take weeks to identify all of them using dental or DNA testing. "But we hope and expect that our MAXes will be airborne soon", Norwegian Air's founder and Chief Executive Bjoern Kjos said in a video recording released on social media.

More than a dozen airlines as well as the governments of China, Indonesia, Australia, and Singapore have grounded the aircraft.

The pilot was named as Senior Capt Yared Getachew who Ethiopian Airlines said had a "commendable performance" with more than 8,000 hours in the air.

Some of the complaints appear to involve the same anti-stall system, according to a U.S. Federal Aviation Administration database.

In November, two incidents were reported to the NASA-run Aviation Safety Reporting Database that involved problems in controlling the 737 MAX at low altitude just after take-off with autopilot engaged, according to documents first published by the Dallas Morning News and verified by Reuters.
