Canada joins ban on Boeing crash aircraft

Pilots didn’t trust the Boeing Max 8 and now flyers are rejecting them

Southwest Airlines, the major air carrier for Sacramento International Airport, announced Wednesday it has grounded 34 jets, following President Donald Trump's order that the United States halt the use of Boeing's 737 Max 8 aircraft and reversing an earlier decision by USA regulators.

"Trump said any plane now in the air will go to its destination and then be grounded, adding that pilots and airlines have been notified".

The Boeing statement said: "Safety is a core value at Boeing for as long as we have been building aeroplanes, and it will always will be".

In addition to those that have already been grounded, there are more than 4,600 Boeing 737 Max 8 planes on backlog that have not yet been delivered to airlines.

"We are doing everything we can to understand the cause of the accidents in partnership with the investigators, reply safety enhancement and help ensure this does not happen again".

The Federal Aviation Administration has resisted calls to ground the planes.

Even as many passengers sought reassurances from travel agents that they would not be flying on a 737 MAX, the United States held out against suspension and Boeing continued to affirm its "full confidence" in the model.

United President Scott Kirby likes to say the average major airline will see several unexpected events each year.

Safety experts cautioned against drawing too many comparisons too soon with that Lion Air crash in October in Indonesia that killed 189 people.

The U.S. was one of the last countries to ban the aircraft.

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg confirmed the pilot's problems in interviews with The Wall Street Journal and CNN.

British MPs reject Theresa May's Brexit deal
That could mean a "hard border" is put in place, potentially reigniting old passions and leading to violence. Anti-Brexit campaigners haven't abandoned efforts to secure a new referendum on whether to remain in the EU.

American Airlines issued a statement Wednesday saying: "Our team will work with all customers impacted by these flight cancellations in order to rebook them to their final destination".

United States aircraft manufacturer Boeing has recommended that its entire global fleet of 737 MAX aircraft be grounded, after evidence collected from the scene of the fatal Ethiopian Airlines crash was made available to aviation authorities. An investigation into that crash is focused on the plane's software system, which is created to push the plane down, according to Reuters. The pilot attempted to stop the software and correct the plane, but ultimately, "the pilot lost that fight with the software".

Ryder explained the airlines may try to cut the number of flights on some routes and replace the Max 8 jetliners with larger planes.

Here's what we know about the Ethiopian Airlines crash so far.

Transport Minister Marc Garneau said Canada had received new satellite data on Wednesday morning that resulted in the safety notice.

Earlier Tuesday, Canada banned the new Boeing 737-Max 8 aircraft, which has crashed twice in fewer than five months, killing almost 350 people.

Travelers can also ask to be booked on a different carrier's flight, though airlines aren't obligated to do so, he said.

Both instances occurred just after takeoff. Authorities in France and Britain said they had not been approached yet.

Growing numbers of countries have banned the model from their airspace or grounded fleets since Sunday's crash.

If so, it will be anomalies that went undetected through the rigorous and exhaustive flight and systems testing of the aircraft prior to being granted a certificate of airworthiness by the US Federal Aviation Administration, required before the type could have entered service with the airlines.
