3 more Boeing 737 Max flights canceled Thursday at Orlando International Airport

Rescue workers search the site for pieces of the wreckage of an Ethiopia Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft near Bishoftu Ethiopia

Boeing has called for its entire worldwide fleet of 737 Max planes to be grounded after severe concerns for the passenger jet's safety sparked by two fatal crashes in recent months.

He said there are similarities between the Ethiopian Airlines flight profile and that of a Lion Air flight involving the same aircraft that crashed off the Indonesian coast in October.

The same model, flown by Lion Air, crashed off the coast of Indonesia past year in October, killing all 189 on board.

Investigators will be looking for any links between the two air disasters.

"Yesterday morning, we communicated with Boeing, the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board in Ethiopia, but we have yet to exchange information", Soerjanto said, adding that they had requested the results of the investigation into the plane's black boxes.

Garuda now operates one Boeing 737 MAX 8, but the plane has been grounded along with 10 MAX jets owned by Lion Air Group, as per the government's instructions.

Possible links between the accidents have rocked the aviation industry, scared passengers, and left the world's biggest plane maker scrambling to prove the safety of a money-spinning model meant to be the standard for decades. It will take several days to complete the first readings from the boxes, French aviation officials said.

"The truth about the crash is indeed contained in the flight recorders", he said.

The New York Times also reported that Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 to Nairobi hit trouble nearly immediately after takeoff.

The crew can't do anything about it, and in the simulator; Aimer could not control the plane.

Boeing still insists that it has "full confidence in the safety" of its aircraft.

"I know the software fix is going out in a couple of weeks, and going fleet-wide is going to take at least through April", Larsen said after he and other committee members were briefed by the FAA's acting administrator, Daniel Elwell, and others.

"If someone is anxious about it, they should absolutely contact their airline", she said.

"The United States Federal Aviation Administration is not mandating any further action at this time, and based on the information now available, we do not have any basis to issue new guidance to operators".
