Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 10,000

  • On Sunday, Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET302 crashed shortly after taking off from Addis Ababa Bole International Airport.
  • The incident, which killed all 157 on board, marked the second crash of a nearly brand new Boeing 737 Max 8 in recent months. Lion Air Flight JT610 crashed in October. 
  • Here are the US airlines with the greatest exposure to the Boeing 737 Max according to Raymond James analyst Savi Syth. 

The Boeing 737 Max is a big deal. It's the fastest selling airliner in Boeing history and is expected to carry the highly successful 737 program into the next decade. 

On Sunday, Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET302 crashed shortly after taking off from Addis Ababa Bole International Airport. The incident, which killed all 157 on board, marked the second crash of a nearly brand new 737 Max 8 in recent months. Lion Air Flight JT610 crashed in October. 

Boeing's announcement, on Tuesday, that it will roll out updated control software for plane over the next few weeks, has not prevented regulators from grounding the plane.

On Tuesday, European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has banned all Boeing 737 Max airliners from flying in Europe. EASA joins national regulators across Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia in grounding the jet.

However, Boeing, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and its US operators have reaffirmed their confidence in the 737 Max. 

In the US, the 737 Max is operated by American, Southwest, and United Airlines. In a note published on Monday, Raymond James analyst Savi Syth outlined the exposure of each operator to the 737 Max.

Southwest Airlines is the world's largest operator of the Boeing 737. So it comes as no surprise that it's also the largest operator of the 737 Max 8 with 34 planes. According to Syth, that represents 5% of the airline's total seat count between March and June of 2019. 

According to Raymond James note, 2% of American's seat inventory between now and June is on board its 24 Boeing 737 Max 8 airliners. Unlike the others, United Airlines does not fly the 737 Max 8 variant that was involved in the two crashes. Instead, the Chicago-based airline operates 14 of the larger Max 9 model. Syth's note indicates only 1% of United's seat exposure in March will be on the Max 9. That figure increases to 2% in April, May, and June. 

Boeing is still working to ramp up the production rate of the Boeing 737 Max which entered service in 2017. As a result, no US airline is greatly exposed to the troubles of the 737 Max program. Even for Southwest, its 34 Max jets are but a small part of its 750-jet fleet. American is the largest airline in the world with roughly 1,000 planes in its inventory.

          Cổ phiếu của Boeing tiếp tục lao dốc sau làn sóng 'cấm cửa'      Cache   Translate Page      

Giá cổ phiếu của tập đoàn chế tạo máy bay Boeing tiếp tục lao dốc trong phiên ngày 12/3 sau khi ngày càng nhiều quốc gia và hãng hàng không trên thế giới đình chỉ khai thác dòng máy bay Boeing 737 Max.

Theo đó, giá cổ phiếu Boeing đã giảm 6,15% trong phiên 12/3, đóng cửa ở mức 375,41 USD/cổ phiếu. Tính đến hiện tại, cổ phiếu của nhà sản xuất máy bay này đã sụt giảm 11,15% chỉ trong vòng hai ngày.

Công ty dịch vụ tài chính Edward Jones có trụ sở tại bang Missouri (Mỹ) đã hạ xếp hạng cổ phiếu Boeing vào hôm thứ Hai, đồng thời cho rằng vụ tai nạn mới đây nhất liên quan đến dòng máy bay Boeing 737 Max có thể tác động mạnh đến lợi nhuận trong ngắn hạn của cổ phiếu này.

Dòng máy bay Boeing 737 Max vẫn đang phải hứng chịu làn sóng cấm khai thác từ một loạt các cơ quan quản lý hàng không và các hãng hàng không.

Mới đây, Cơ quan An toàn Hàng không châu Âu (EASA) ngày 12/3 đã công bố quyết định đình chỉ mọi hoạt động bay đối với 2 phiên bản máy bay Boeing 737 MAX 8 và Boeing 737 MAX 9 sau khi xảy ra hai vụ tai nạn máy bay thảm khốc liên quan đến mẫu máy bay Boeing 737 MAX 8 chỉ trong vòng 5 tháng.

Tuyên bố của EASA khẳng định tất cả các chuyến bay thương mại liên quan đến dòng Boeing 737 MAX trong không phận châu Âu sẽ bị đình chỉ.

Quyết định trên được đưa ra sau khi một loạt các cơ quan quản lý hàng không thuộc Trung Quốc, Indonesia, Hàn Quốc, Vương quốc Anh, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Đức, Mexico, New Zealand, Italy... đều có động thái tương tự.

Nhiều hãng hàng không cũng quyết định dừng khai thác dòng máy bay 737 MAX như Ethiopian Airlines, Comair, Cayman Airways, Gol Airlines, Aeromexico, Aerolineas Argentinas... Một số quốc gia Nam Mỹ cũng tuyên bố đang đánh giá tình hình trước khi đưa ra quyết định đóng cửa không phận đối với phiên bản máy bay 737 MAX 8 của Boeing.

Tuy nhiên, Cơ quan Quản lý Hàng không Mỹ (FAA) tuyên bố không đình chỉ hoạt động của máy bay 737 MAX, cho rằng chưa có cơ sở chính xác để đưa ra quyết định trên nhưng sẽ yêu cầu nhà sản xuất chỉnh sửa thiết kế để cải tiến hệ thống điều khiển bay.

Bên cạnh đó, hãng hàng không của Mỹ gồm Southwest Airlines, American Airlines và United Airlines cũng đều bảy tỏ tin tưởng về đội bay của họ, dù các tiếp viên trên không và bộ phận dưới mặt đất của Southwest và American đều kêu gọi công ty tạm dừng khai thác dòng Boeing 737 Max cho đến khi vụ tai nạn ngày 10/3 có thêm thông tin.

Trong phiên 12/3, giá cổ phiếu của Southwest Airlines giảm 2,3% xuống quanh mức 50 USD. Giá cổ phiếu của American Airlines cũng để mất 3,5% xuống 30,92 USD vào cùng phiên này.

Chiếc Boeing 737 MAX 8 mang số hiệu ET 302 của hãng hàng không Ethiopian Airlines ngày 10/3 đang trên hành trình từ thủ đô Addis Ababa của Ethiopia đến thủ đô Nairobi của Kenya đã rơi chỉ 6 phút sau khi cất cánh từ sân bay quốc tế Bole ở thủ đô Addis Ababa, khiến toàn bộ 149 hành khách và 8 thành viên phi hành đoàn thiệt mạng.

Dù các nhà chức trách vẫn chưa xác định được chính xác nguyên nhân của vụ tai nạn thảm khốc trên, nhưng dư luận ngày càng lo ngại về sự an toàn của dòng máy bay 737 Max sau khi đã có hai vụ tai nạn liên quan đến dòng này xảy ra trong vòng chưa đầy nửa năm./.

          Boeing 737 MAX 8: US Says 'no Basis' To Suspend Troubled Jet, But 45 Countries Disagree      Cache   Translate Page      

US aviation regulators said there was "no basis" to suspend flights of Boeing's 737 MAX jet after two fatal crashes that prompted several airlines and at least 45 countries to either ground the troubled aircraft or bar it from their airspace. "Thus far, our review shows no systemic performance issues and provides no basis to order grounding the aircraft. Nor have other civil aviation authorities provided data to us that would warrant action," the Federal Aviation Administration's acting administrator Daniel Elwell, said. The groundings come after an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 jet crashed on Sunday, six minutes after take-off, killing all 157 people on board, including seven Chinese nationals and one Hongkonger. On October 29 last year, another MAX jet flown by Indonesia's Lion Air crashed into the Java Sea, 12 minutes after take-off, killing all 189 passengers and crew. China's Boeing 737 MAX ban signals challenge to US power in civil aviation As of Wednesday morning Hong Kong time, at least the US, Canada, Panama, Thailand, Mauritania and Kazakhstan permitted airlines to fly the 737 MAX, for now. The United Arab Emirates and New Zealand on Wednesday joined the growing list of countries to ban the MAX jet from their airspace. That came after the European Union followed China's lead in grounding the US aircraft. Hong Kong remained one of the handful of jurisdictions in Asia that had not imposed restrictions on the aircraft. It is unclear if the Civil Aviation Department would change its mind on Wednesday. China's decision to ground Boeing 737 MAX 8 driven by safety concerns Indian airline SpiceJet flies the Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft between New Delhi and Hong Kong. However, flights have been suspended after India's aviation watchdog ordered a safety assessment of the aircraft. Russia's S7 Airlines, which flies the 737 MAX 8 between Novosibirsk and Hong Kong, was set to continue unless Russia also halted flights of the planes. Turkish Airlines, one of the largest carriers in the world, said it was suspending use of its 12 MAX aircraft from Wednesday, until "uncertainty" was clarified. Low-cost airline Norwegian Air Shuttle, South Korea's Eastar Jet and South Africa's Comair also said they would halt flights. The three US airlines using the 737 MAX - Southwest Airlines, American Airlines and United Airlines - stood by the aircraft, as calls from members of the US Congress to ban the Boeing 737 MAX from US airspace increased. Republicans Mitt Romney and Ted Cruz joined several Democratic lawmakers in advocating for restrictions similar to those imposed by a growing list of nations. US President Donald Trump also weighed in with a blistering tweet on Tuesday: "Airplanes are becoming far too complex to fly." "Pilot are no longer needed, but rather computer scientists from MIT," he wrote, referring to the prestigious university. Airplanes are becoming far too complex to fly.

          Η Ευρώπη κλείνει τον εναέριο χώρο της για τα Boeing 737 ΜΑΧ – Οι ΗΠΑ τα κρατάνε      Cache   Translate Page      

boing

Παγκόσμια ανησυχία για την ασφάλεια των πτήσεων έχει προκαλέσει η αεροπορική τραγωδία με το Boeing 737 ΜΑΧ 8 της Ethiopian Airlines που προκάλεσε τον θάνατο 157 ανθρώπων. Ο Ευρωπαϊκός Οργανισμός Ασφάλειας της Αεροπορίας (EASA) αποφάσισε να αναστείλει όλες τις πτήσεις των Boeing 737-8 και 737-9 στον ευρωπαϊκό εναέριο χώρο, αρχής γενομένης από τις 21.00 ώρα Ελλάδας την Τρίτη. «H EASA αποφάσισε να αναστείλει όλες τις πτήσεις των δύο μοντέλων» τονίζεται στη σχετική ανακοίνωση. Παρ' όλα αυτά δεν έχει ληφθεί αντίστοιχη απόφαση στις ΗΠΑ όπου οι αμερικανικές αεροπορικές εταιρείες συνεχίζουν κανονικά τις πτήσεις τους.

Νωρίτερα, τον αποκλεισμό του αεροσκάφους Boeing 737 Max 8 από τον γερμανικό εναέριο χώρο ανακοίνωσε ο υπουργός Μεταφορών της Γερμανίας Αντρέας Σόιερ. Αντίστοιχη απαγόρευση είχε επιβάλει νωρίτερα την Τρίτη και η Βρετανία, μετά και την δεύτερη εντός λίγων μηνών συντριβή αεροσκάφους αυτού του τύπου, πρώτα της ινδονησιακής «Lion Air» και την περασμένη Κυριακή των Αιθιοπικών Αερογραμμών.

«Η ασφάλεια έχει απόλυτη προτεραιότητα. Μέχρι να διαλυθούν όλες οι αμφιβολίες, ο γερμανικός εναέριος χώρος είναι κλειστός για το Boeing 737 Max 8», δήλωσε ο κ. Σόιερ και διευκρίνισε ότι το μέτρο αφορά μόνο για υπερπτήσεις, καθώς ο συγκεκριμένος τύπος αεροσκάφους δεν χρησιμοποιείται πλέον σε καμία πτήση με προορισμό ή αφετηρία γερμανικό αεροδρόμιο, μετά και την απόφαση του τουριστικού κολοσσού TUI να σταματήσει τις πτήσεις με το Boeing 737 Max 8.

Σε ό,τι αφορά την περίπτωση της Βρετανίας, ο αποκλεισμός που επεβλήθη αφορά εκτός από τις υπερπτήσεις και τις απογειώσεις και προσγειώσεις από/σε βρετανικό αεροδρόμιο.

Ο πρόεδρος των ΗΠΑ Ντόναλντ Τραμπ και ο Ντένις Μιούλενμπεργκ, ο επικεφαλής της Boeing, είχαν τηλεφωνική επικοινωνία. Η συνομιλία αυτή διεξήχθη λίγο μετά τα tweets του Τραμπ, όπου εξέφραζε τη λύπη του διότι τα αεροσκάφη είναι πλέον «πολύ περίπλοκα» προκειμένου να τα κυβερνήσουν, επισήμανε αυτή η πηγή, που μίλησε υπό καθεστώς ανωνυμίας.

Ο Μιούλενμπεργκ διαβεβαίωσε τον Αμερικανό πρόεδρο ότι τα 737 MAX 8 είναι «ασφαλή» και «αξιόπιστα» παρά την απόφαση που έλαβαν πολλές χώρες, ιδίως στην Ευρώπη, να κλείσουν τον εναέριο χώρο τους σε αυτά τα αεροσκάφη. Η ίδια πηγή, αντιθέτως, δεν θέλησε να διευκρινίσει σε ποιον από τους δύο άνδρες ανήκει η πρωτοβουλία για την τηλεφωνική συνδιάλεξη ούτε πόσο διήρκησε η συνομιλία.

Σε επικοινωνία με το Γαλλικό Πρακτορείο, η Boeing δεν θέλησε να σχολιάσει τις πληροφορίες.

Οι ΗΠΑ παραμένουν μία από τις λίγες μεγάλες χώρες που διατηρούν την εμπιστοσύνη τους στο συγκεκριμένο αεροσκάφος.

Απώλειες δισ. της Boeing- Kατρακυλά η μετοχή της

Η αξία της μετοχής της Boeing έπεσε κατά 6%, αν και η κατασκευάστρια εταιρία επιμένει ότι έχει κάθε εμπιστοσύνη στα μέτρα ασφαλείας που λαμβάνονται και για το συγκεκριμένο αεροσκάφος.

Η μετοχή της Boeing έπεσε 6,1% την Τρίτη, γεγονός που σημαίνει ότι η εταιρεία έχει χάσει 11,15% από την στιγμή του δυστυχήματος και βρίσκεται στο χαμηλότερο σημείο από τον Ιούλιο του 2009. Οι απώλειες μεταφράζονται σε περίπου 26,65 δισεκατομμύρια δολάρια από την αγοραστική αξία της Boeing.

Ακυρώνουν εισιτήρια οι ταξιδιώτες

Σε ανακοίνωσή της η Boeing αναφέρει πως ναι μεν «κατανοεί» τις χώρες που απαγορεύουν την πτήση των 737 MAX, αλλά διατηρεί την πλήρη εμπιστοσύνη της στα συγκεκριμένα αεροσκάφη, έχοντας πάντα ως πρώτη προτεραιότητα την ασφάλεια.

Στην Αμερική, τρεις εταιρείες χρησιμοποιούν το συγκεκριμένο τύπο αεροσκάφους και δεν το έχουν αποσύρει από τους στόλους τους, μετά τα πρόσφατα γεγονότα. Πρόκειται για τις Southwest Airlines, American Airlines και United Airlines - που πάντως δέχονται καταιγισμό παραπόνων από επιβάτες που ζητούν να αλλάξουν τις πτήσεις τους ή να ακυρώσουν τα εισιτήρια τους, προκειμένου να μην ταξιδέψουν με το 737 ΜΑX.

Παράλληλα, το σωματείο των πιλότων της United Airlines ανακοίνωσε ότι δεν αντιμετώπισε καμία μηχανική δυσλειτουργία σε περισσότερες από 23.000 ώρες πτήσης με το συγκεκριμένο τύπο αεροσκάφους.

  • A Boeing 737 Max 8 operated by Ethiopian Airlines was the second such plane to crash in five months on Sunday. 
  • No cause has been determined, but its similarities to the Lion Air crash in October have caused several major countries to ban the airplane. 
  • Boeing says it will soon roll out software updates to fix a problem with how the plane flies. 
  • Several US senators have called on the federal government to also ban the plane. 
  • Boeing's stock price, as well as shares of related companies, all took a hit this week because of the crash. 

Ethiopian Airlines’ deadly crash on Sunday was the second disaster involving a Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft in the last five months.

The apparent similarities to the crash of Lion Air in October has sparked an outcry from US lawmakers as other countries — including China, Britain, Australia, and more — ground the plane pending further investigation.

Here’s what we know so far about Sunday’s crash and any similarities to the Lion Air disaster so far:

All of the 157 people on board were killed

When the Ethiopian Airlines plane plunged to the ground shortly after takeoff from Addis Ababa en route to Nairobi, all 149 passengers and eight crew were killed.

The airline’s CEO told journalists that those involved hailed largely from African countries, as well as 18 Canadians, eight Americans, and others from a handful of European countries.

Here’s the full list of nationalities of people killed on board.

One passenger, who accidentally missed the crashed flight by two minutes said in a Facebook post that he was "grateful to be alive," despite being angry previously that no staff could help him find his gate. 

Boeing’s response

Boeing, the US-based manufacturer of the 737 Max 8 involved in the crash, has rolled out a software update in response to the two crashes, it said Tuesday.

At the heart of the controversy surrounding the 737 MAX is MCAS or the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation system. To fit the MAX's larger, more fuel-efficient engines, Boeing had to redesign the way it mounts engines on the 737.

This change disrupted the plane's center of gravity and caused the MAX to have a tendency to tip its nose upward during flight, increasing the likelihood of a stall. MCAS is designed to automatically counteract that tendency and point the nose of the plane downward.

Unfortunately, initial reports from the Lion Air investigation indicate that a faulty sensor reading may have triggered MCAS shortly after the flight took off.

Here’s the company’s full statement:

For the past several months and in the aftermath of Lion Air Flight 610, Boeing has been developing a flight control software enhancement for the 737 MAX, designed to make an already safe aircraft even safer. This includes updates to the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS) flight control law, pilot displays, operation manuals, and crew training. The enhanced flight control law incorporates angle of attack (AOA) inputs, limits stabilizer trim commands in response to an erroneous angle of attack reading, and provides a limit to the stabilizer command in order to retain elevator authority.

Still, Boeing’s statement has done little to calm fears of global air travel regulators around the world.

Major countries have banned the plane

On Tuesday, a huge swath of European nations, including Germany, France, the UK, and Italy all banned the 737 Max from their airspace until a thorough investigation can be completed.

The US’ air safety regulator on Monday said the plane was still safe to fly, but demanded a few changes to the plane for Boeing to make. For now, the Federal Aviation Administration does not appear to be following the rest of the world in grounding the plane.

 

"External reports are drawing similarities between this accident and the Lion Air Flight 610 accident on October 29, 2018," the FAA said Monday. "However, this investigation has just begun and to date we have not been provided data to draw any conclusions or take any actions"

A handful of American lawmakers, including at least three senators and a representative, have called on the FAA to ground the plane. Amid those calls, US Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao and her entourage of staff flew on a 737 Max 8 from Austin, Texas back to Washington D.C. Tuesday afternoon. 

"The department and the FAA will not hesitate to take immediate and appropriate action," Chao said, according to CNBC. 

Pilots in the United States also reported issues with the plane in the months leading up to Sunday's crash. One pilot even the flight manual "inadequate and almost criminally insufficient," according to the Dallas Morning News.

Those complaints were made in the Federal Aviation Administration's incident database which allows pilots to report issues about aviation incidents anonymously. They highlighted issues with the Max 8's autopilot system, which has been called into question following the crash of Lion Air Flight 610 in October. That incident also involved a Boeing 737 Max 8 plane.

The crisis is already having a big impact on Boeing’s business

Boeing stock price 737 Max 8 crashShares of Chicago-based Boeing have fallen more than 12% since the crash on Sunday, as some airlines have reportedly asked to delay the delivery of the 737 Max 8 aircraft they have on order.

The company’s order book — aircraft that airlines around the world have agreed to purchase — is overwhelmingly comprised of the plane in question.

"We are not surprised by the negative stock reaction, as the 737 represents the strongest backlog, free cash flow (FCF and potential upside from further rate increases," Ken Hubert, an analyst at Canaccord Tenuity, said in a note to clients on Monday.

"We view the risk as less about near term expenses, but the full year 737 delivery estimates for BA could be impacted. We do not expect BA to slow the 737 pull from suppliers. Moreover, the larger risk is the reputational concern for BA," he continued.

Boeing's plunge also dragged down the Dow Jones industrial average, of which it comprises a large percentage.

CEO Dennis Muilenburg spoke to President Trump on the phone Tuesday, the company confirmed to Business Insider. A spokesperson offered no details of their conversation, but refuted the New York Times' claim that the chief executive tried to persuade Trump to not ground the plane like most other countries.  

Airlines could take a hit too

Southwest is the US airline most exposed to the 737 Max 8, according to calculations by Joseph Denardi, an analyst at Stifel.

The 737 MAX comprised 2.2 of Southwest’s scheduled available seat miles (ASM) for March, and is projected to grow to 2.6% by June. The airline reportedly said Tuesday that it’s "working with Customers individually who wish to rebook their flight to another aircraft type."

United Airlines and American Airlines also operate the plane in the US, where there are 74 of them registered according to the FAA. Around the world, 59 airlines operate 387 of the 737 Max 8 and 9, the agency said. 

Airline stocks and other related aerospace companies stock prices were also taking a hit this week, Markets Insider reported.

What comes next

The "black box" flight data recorder for Sunday’s crash was found Monday, Ethiopian Airlines said in a statement. Investigators from the country, assisted by the US’ National Transportation Safety Board, have yet to reach a final conclusion.

          US will not suspend Boeing 737 MAX planes; discussion on black box analysis      Cache   Translate Page      

The US Federal Aviation Administration said on Tuesday it would not ground Boeing 737 MAX bucking a trend of countries around the world that have suspended the aircraft's operations.

US and Ethiopian aviation safety officials discussed on Tuesday whether the flight data and cockpit voice recorders from Ethiopian Airlines flight 302, which crashed on Sunday killing all 157 people onboard, would go to Washington or London for download and analysis.

US officials said the devices suffered some damage but they were confident of some initial results within 24 hours of the data being downloaded.

US carriers are eager to see the results as a growing number of countries and carriers are grounding the planes. There were 371 of the 737 MAX family jets in operation before this week's groundings and about two thirds of the fleet is now grounded, based on Reuters calculations.    

It is not clear if a final decision on where the recorders would go for analysis has been made. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) declined to comment.

The FAA's acting administrator, Dan Elwell, said its review had shown "no systemic performance issues and provides no basis to order grounding the aircraft."

President Donald Trump spoke to Boeing Chief Executive Dennis Muilenburg and got assurances the aircraft was safe and did not need to be grounded, two people briefed on the call said.

The European Union's aviation safety regulator suspended all flights in the bloc by the 737 MAX and a US senator who chairs a panel overseeing aviation suggested the United States take similar action following Sunday's crash, the second since October involving that type of plane.

But Elwell said no foreign civil aviation authorities had provided data that would warrant action. If any safety issues were identified during an urgent review of the Ethiopian Airlines crash, the FAA would "take immediate and appropriate action," he said.       

Britain, Germany and France joined a wave of suspensions of the aircraft following the crash, piling pressure on the United States to follow suit.

Boeing, the world's biggest planemaker, which has seen billions of dollars wiped off its market value since the crash, said it understood the actions but retained "full confidence" in the 737 MAX and had safety as its priority.

The three US airlines using the 737 MAX - Southwest Airlines, American Airlines and United Airlines — stood by the aircraft, although many potential passengers took to social media to express concerns, asking if they could change flights or cancel.

The cause of Sunday's crash, which followed another disaster with a 737 MAX five months ago in Indonesia that killed 189 people, remains unknown. On Monday, the FAA released details of a series of design changes and training requirements mandated from Boeing on the MAX fleet after the Indonesia crash.

There is no evidence the two crashes are linked. Plane experts say it is too early to speculate on the reason for the latest crash. Most are caused by a unique chain of human and technical factors.

European suspension

In an unusual decision, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) said it was suspending all flights in the bloc by the Boeing 737 MAX 8 and 9 jets.

It shied away, however, from the even rarer step of pulling the safety certification for the plane itself, focusing instead on the softer process of restricting its use by airlines. That leaves some leeway for the FAA to decide its own approach.

Flight ET 302 came down in a field soon after takeoff from Addis Ababa, creating a fireball in a crater. It may take weeks or months to identify all the victims, who include a prize-winning author, a soccer official and a team of humanitarian workers.

Boeing shares fell 6.1 percent on Tuesday, bringing losses to 11.15 percent since the crash, the steepest two-day loss for the stock since July 2009. The drop has lopped $26.65 billion off Boeing's market value.           

Of the top 10 countries by air passenger travel, all but the United States and Japan have halted flights of the 737 MAX. China, Indonesia, Singapore, New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia, India and others have temporarily suspended the plane.

Canada has no plans to ground 737 MAX aircraft but is ready to act to suspend flights if new information emerges indicating there is a problem, Transport Minister Marc Garneau said. Argentina and other South American nations are evaluating closing their airspace to 737 MAX planes, Argentina's state-run news agency, Telam, reported.

US Senator Ted Cruz, a Republican who chairs the Senate subcommittee on aviation and space, said it would be "prudent" for the United States "to temporarily ground 737 Max aircraft until the FAA confirms the safety of these aircraft and their passengers."

Trump also fretted over modern aircraft design.

"Pilots are no longer needed, but rather computer scientists from MIT," Trump tweeted, lamenting that product developers always sought to go an unnecessary step further when "old and simpler" was superior.

"I don't know about you, but I don't want Albert Einstein to be my pilot. I want great flying professionals that are allowed to easily and quickly take control of a plane!"

Trump did not refer to Boeing or recent accidents, but his comments echoed an automation debate that partially lies at the center of an investigation into October's Lion Air crash in Indonesia. A focus there is the role of a software system designed to push the plane down, alongside airline training and repair standards.

Boeing says it plans to update the software in coming weeks.

Victims from 30 nations

Given problems of identification at the charred disaster site, Ethiopian Airlines said it would take at least five days to start handing remains to families.

The victims came from more than 30 nations, and included nearly two dozen UN staff.

"We are Muslim and have to bury our deceased immediately," Noordin Mohamed, a 27-year-old Kenyan businessman whose brother and mother died, told Reuters.

"Losing a brother and mother in the same day and not having their bodies to bury is very painful," he said in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, where the plane had been due.

The new variant of the 737, the world's most-sold modern passenger aircraft, is viewed as the likely workhorse for global airlines for decades and 4,661 more are on order.

          Event Update For 2019-03-10      Cache   Translate Page      




http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html




The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

Quote: "Witness account of the Ethiopian airlines that crashed Sunday killing 157 people on board says the plane came down in flames before it exploded after hitting the ground. It has also been reported that the pilot made a distress call and had been cleared to return at Bole International airport."

Quote: "The Ethiopian plane was new, delivered to the airline in November. The Boeing 737 Max 8 was one of 30 meant for the airline, Boeing said in July. The jet’s last maintenance was on Feb. 4, and it had flown just 1,200 hours. The plane crashed six minutes after departure, plowing into the ground at Hejere near Bishoftu, or Debre Zeit, some 31 miles outside Addis Ababa, at 8:44 a.m. There was no immediate indication why the plane went down in clear weather while on a flight to Nairobi, the capital of neighboring Kenya."

          «Πόλεμος» Ευρώπης-ΗΠΑ για τα Boeing 737 Max 8 -Απαγορεύτηκαν οι πτήσεις στην ΕΕ       Cache   Translate Page      
«Πόλεμος» Ευρώπης-ΗΠΑ για τα Boeing 737 Max 8 -Απαγορεύτηκαν οι πτήσεις στην ΕΕ
Ένας άτυπος «πόλεμος» μεταξύ ΗΠΑ και Ευρώπης φαίνεται πως έχει ξεσπάσει γύρω από τα αεροσκάφη Boeing 737 Max 8 μετά την τραγωδία στην Αιθιοπία.
Η συντριβή του Boeing της Ethiopian Airlines με τους 157 επιβαίνοντες την περασμένη Κυριακή 60 χλμ., τέσσερις μήνες έπειτα από ένα παρόμοιο δυστύχημα με αεροσκάφος του ίδιου μοντέλου της εταιρείας Lion Air στην Ινδονησία, οδήγησε τον Ευρωπαϊκό Οργανισμό Ασφάλειας της Αεροπορίας (EASA) να κλείσει τον εναέριο χώρο της Γηραιάς Ηπείρου στα αεροσκάφη Max 8 και Μax 9 κι αφού προηγουμένως είχαν λάβει ανάλογες αποφάσεις οι αντίστοιχες εποπτικές Αρχές της Βρετανίας, της Ιρλανδίας της Γαλλίας και της Γερμανίας.
Έτσι οι ΗΠΑ παραμένουν μία από τις λίγες μεγάλες χώρες που επιμένουν να εμπιστεύονται το συγκεκριμένο αεροσκάφος, ενώ η Αμερικανική Ομοσπονδιακή Υπηρεσία Πολιτικής Αεροπορίας (FAA) εμφανίζεται ολοένα και πιο απομονωμένη, ένα 24ωρο αφότου ανακοίνωσε ότι περιμένει περισσότερες πληροφορίες για το αεροπορικό δυστύχημα στην Αιθιοπία.
Αμερικανοί βουλευτές ζητούν από την FAA να καθηλώσει τα 737 Max
Αμερικανοί βουλευτές, Δημοκρατικοί και Ρεπουμπλικανοί, κάλεσαν την FAA να καθηλώσει και αυτή με τη σειρά της τα συγκεκριμένα αεροσκάφη, εξέλιξη που θα προκαλούσαν μεγάλα προβλήματα στα δρομολόγια και τεράστια σε μια από τις κορυφαίες βιομηχανίες της χώρας.
«Η FAA πρέπει σήμερα, αμέσως, να κατεβάσει αυτά τα αεροσκάφη από τον ουρανό», δήλωσε η γερουσιαστής των Δημοκρατικών Ελίζαμπεθ Γουόρεν, ζητώντας να συσταθεί επιτροπή στο Κογκρέσο που να εξετάσει αν η κυβέρνηση Τραμπ θέτει σε κίνδυνο τις ζωές πολιτών.
O Τραμπ έλαβε διαβεβαιώσεις από τον επικεφαλής της Boeing
O Ρεπουμπλικανός πρόεδρος επικοινώνησε τηλεφωνικά με τον επικεφαλής της Boeing, Ντένις Μιούλενμπεργκ - λίγο αφότου ανήρτησε tweets, όπου εξέφραζε τη λύπη του επειδή τα αεροσκάφη είναι πλέον «πολύ περίπλοκα» προκειμένου να τα πιλοτάρουν οι κυβερνήτες τους-.  
Το αφεντικό της Boeing τον διαβεβαίωσε ότι τα 737 Max 8 είναι «ασφαλή» και «αξιόπιστα» παρά την απόφαση που έλαβαν πολλές χώρες, ιδίως στην Ευρώπη, να κλείσουν τον εναέριο χώρο τους σε αυτά τα αεροσκάφη.
Καθηλωμένα τα Boeing 737 Max στο μισό πλανήτη
Οι αποφάσεις της ΕΕ και άλλων χωρών να καθηλώσουν τα Boeing 737 Max 8 και 9 σηματοδοτούν μια αλλαγή στην έως τώρα στάση τους, καθώς μέχρι τώρα ακολουθούσαν τη γραμμή της FAA όσον αφορά στην ασφάλεια αμερικανικών αεροσκαφών.
Αλλά τα δυστυχήματα σε Αιθιοπία και Ινδονησία εμφανίζουν ανησυχητικές ομοιότητες: και στις δύο περιπτώσεις έμπειροι κυβερνήτες πιλοτάρισαν ολοκαίνουργια αεροσκάφη, που συνετρίβησαν λίγο μετά την απογείωση. Η προκαταρκτική έρευνα στην Ινδονησία έδειξε ότι ένα νέο σύστημα ασφαλείας λόγω εσφαλμένης μέτρησης των αισθητήρων ωθούσε το ρύγχος του αεροσκάφους προς το κάτω παρά τις απεγνωσμένες προσπάθειες των πιλότων να διορθώσουν την πορεία του. Ενώ πολλές ενώσεις πιλότων διαμαρτυρήθηκαν ότι η Boeing δεν είχε ενημερώσει σωστά τις αεροπορικές εταιρείες για το λογισμικό αυτό.
Η απόφαση της ΕΕ να απαγορέψει τις πτήσεις των συγκεκριμένων αεροσκαφών ήλθε μετά από ανάλογες αποφάσεις πολλών άλλων χωρών, όπως η Κίνα, η Αυστραλία, η Μαλαισία, το Ομάν και η Σινγκαπουρη, το Μεξικό, η Νότια Κορέα και η Νορβηγία. Πολλά αεροσκάφη αναγκάστηκαν να γυρίσουν πίσω καθώς η μία μετά την άλλη οι χώρες έκλειναν τους εναέριους χώρους τους.
Η FAA επιμένει ότι τα 737 Μax είναι ασφαλή
H FAA επιμένει μέχρι στιγμής στην άποψη ότι είναι πολύ νωρίς να κρίνει μη αξιόπλοο το αεροσκάφος. «Η έρευνα έχει μόλις αρχίσει και δεν έχουμε μέχρι στιγμής δεδομένα για να εξάγουμε συμπεράσματα ή να αναλάβουμε δράση», ανέφερε σε ανακοίνωσή της. Ενώ τόνισε ότι συνεργάζεται με την Boeing αναφορικά με ένα αναβαθμισμένο λογισμικό, που όμως θα τοποθετηθεί τον Απρίλιο στα αεροσκάφη.
Η υπουργός Μεταφορών των ΗΠΑ, Ελέιν Τσάο προσπάθησε να καθησυχάσει την κοινή γνώμη «ότι λαμβάνουμε πολύ στα σοβαρά αυτά τα δυστυχήματα».
Επιβάτες ακυρώνουν τα εισιτήρια για πτήσεις με 737 Max 8
H Βοeing, που βλέπει την μετοχή της να κατακρημνίζεται χάνοντας δεκάδες δισ. δολάρια από την αγοραστική της αξία μέσα σε δύο 24ωρα και τους ταξιδιώτες να ακυρώνουν ο ένας μετά τον άλλο τις πτήσεις με τα συγκεκριμένα αεροσκάφη, επιμένει ότι έχει πλήρη εμπιστοσύνη στο 737.
«Κατανοούμε ότι εποπτικές Αρχές και πελάτες έλαβαν αποφάσεις που θεωρούν ότι είναι οι καλύτερες για τις εγχώριες αγορές τους. Θα συνεχίσουμε να συνεργαζόμαστε μαζί τους για να διασφαλίσουμε ότι θα έχουν όλες τις αναγκαίες πληροφορίες για να εμπιστεύονται τους στόλους των αεροσκαφών τους».
Όμως σύμφωνα με το Flightglobal σχεδόν τέσσερα στα δέκα Boeing Μax έχουν καθηλωθεί παγκοσμίως, αριθμός που αυξάνει συνεχώς. Στις ΗΠΑ τρεις αεροπορικές εταιρείες χρησιμοποιούν το Max 8, οι American Airlines, Southwest Airlines και η United Airlines και όλες τους επιμένουν ότι έχουν εμπιστοσύνη στο συγκεκριμένο τύπο αεροσκάφους.

United Airlines will keep its headquarters in Willis Tower for at least another 14 years, after being courted by owners of megadevelopment sites along the Chicago River.

          Pilotos reportan problemas con nuevo jet Boeing 737 Max; se inclinó hacia abajo      Cache   Translate Page      
Pilotos de aerolíneas estadounidenses reportaron en al menos dos vuelos que un sistema automático aparentemente fue la causa de que sus aviones Boeing 737 Max se inclinaran bruscamente hacia abajo.

Los capitanes dijeron que el hecho se produjo poco después de encender el piloto automático y que los aviones se recuperaron rápidamente al desconectarlo.

Sin embargo, de acuerdo con la descripción de los pilotos, el problema no parecía estar relacionado con un nuevo sistema automático antibloqueo que se sospecha fue una de las causas de una caída fatal en Indonesia en octubre.

Más de 40 países en el mundo han vedado los vuelos del Max 8 luego de una segunda caída fatal, esta vez en Etiopía, menos de cinco meses después de la primera. Sin embargo, las aerolíneas estadounidenses y la Administración Federal de Aviación de Estados Unidos (FAA, por sus siglas en inglés) no se han sumado a la veda.

American Airlines y Southwest Airlines operan el 737 Max 8, y United Airlines una versión un poco más grande, el Max9. Las tres respondieron por la seguridad de los Max el miércoles.

Los informes de los pilotos fueron archivados el año pasado en una base de datos de la NASA. Son informes voluntarios sobre seguridad que no identifican públicamente a los pilotos, las aerolíneas ni el lugar de los incidentes.

No estaba claro si la FAA o las aerolíneas tomaron medidas.

En un informe, el capitán dijo que apenas puso el avión en piloto automático, el copiloto exclamó, “Descenso”, y a continuación el audio de la cabina advirtió, “no bajar, no bajar”.

El capitán desconectó el piloto automático y reanudó el ascenso.

“Preocupados por el descenso de la trompa del MAX 8, a los dos nos pareció apropiado informarles sobre esto”, escribió el capitán.


“Mi mejor conjetura es la fluctuación de velocidad aérea debido a un breve sistema climático al que los sistemas automáticos del avión no supieron responder”.


En otro vuelo, el copiloto dijo que segundos después de encender el piloto automático, la trompa se inclinó bruscamente hacia abajo y el avión empezó a descender a 365-460 metros (mil 200 a mil 500 pies) por minuto. Tal como en el otro vuelo, el sistema de audio emitió una advertencia. El piloto desconectó el piloto automático y el avión reanudó el ascenso.

Los pilotos analizaron la situación posteriormente, “pero no se me ocurre una razón para que la trompa del avión se inclinara tan agresivamente”, relató el copiloto.

Informes preliminares de los investigadores indonesios indican que están indagando en nuevo sistema automático antibloqueo del Max como posible factor en la caída del avión de Lion Air poco después de su despegue de Yakarta en octubre. Los datos indican que los pilotos tuvieron problemas con las órdenes reiteradas del avión de bajar la trompa antes de caer al mar de Java y matar a 189 personas.

Pero el sistema antibloqueo _conocido por la sigla MCAS_ solo se activa si se apaga el piloto automático, según documentos de Boeing enviados a las aerolíneas y la FAA.

“No quiero decir que no es un problema”, dijo el piloto Dennis Tajer, de American Airlines, acerca de los incidentes reportados a NASA. “Pero no es el MCAS. El piloto automático tiene que estar desconectado para que se active el MCAS”.

Otro piloto se quejó de que Boeing no había explicado los cambios en los sistemas automáticos.

“Me pregunto, ¿qué otra cosa no sé?”, escribió el piloto. “El Manual de Vuelo es insuficiente, casi en un grado criminal”.

An American Airlines representative told Business Insider the airline is not removing fees for customers who switch away from Boeing 737 Max aircraft.

"We will continue to comply with all FAA guidelines, and believe the Boeing 737 Max aircraft is safe and that our pilots are well-trained and well-equipped to operate it," the representative said.

United Airlines did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The airline does not use the 737 Max 8, but does use a slightly larger version of the aircraft.

Southwest's fee waiver follows an Ethiopian Airlines crash on Sunday that killed all 157 people onboard. The crash was the second in the last five months involving a Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft, following the October crash of a Lion Air flight that killed 189 people.

The European Union, China, and Australia have grounded the Boeing 737 Max 8, and while the Federal Aviation Administration said on Monday that the aircraft is safe to fly, US lawmakers have urged the agency to reverse that evaluation.

NBC News

The Federal Aviation Administration on Monday said U.S. airlines can still fly the Boeing jet model that has been involved in two crashes in less than six months.

Its announcement came as other countries around the world — including China, Indonesia, Mexico and Argentina — grounded the Boeing 737 Max 8 and 737 Max 9 jets in their airlines' fleets in the wake of an Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed all 157 people aboard Sunday.

The 737 Max 8 that went down in Ethiopia shortly after takeoff is that same model that crashed in Indonesia in late October, killing 189.

The FAA said the 737 Max 8 and its newer version, the Max 9, are airworthy. It also said it will closely examine all crash data in Ethiopia and take action if it is warranted.

"All data will be closely examined during this investigation, and the FAA will take appropriate action if necessary," the agency said in a statement.

The agency noted that reports are drawing similarities between this accident and the Indonesia crash, but said "this investigation has just begun, and to date we have not been provided data to draw any conclusions or take any actions."

Besides the FAA, commercial airlines in the U.S. and Boeing were all coming under pressure Monday to keep 737 Max jets out of the air or at least to address safety concerns while the crash investigation is ongoing.

Boeing announced Monday night that enhancements to flight-control software for its 737 Max fleet would be implemented in the "coming weeks," Reuters reported.

The company said the updates, which it began developing after the Indonesia crash in October, include tweaks to pilot displays and changes to crew training and operation manuals, the company said in a statement.

Earlier in Monday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., was among those calling for the FAA to ground the 737 Max-8 jets used by U.S. airlines.

“This aircraft model represents only a small fraction of the domestic fleet, and several other countries have already taken this important step, including China and Indonesia," she said.

Chicago-based Boeing says on its website that the 737 Max 8 and Max 9 models are “the fastest-selling airplane in Boeing history.” It says it has received “nearly 4,700 orders from more than 100 customers worldwide” for the jets.

The company has built 329 of the 737 Max 8 series and 21 of the Max 9 models, according to the FAA.

Jim Hall, a former head of the National Transportation Safety Board, said on MSNBC that Boeing should ground all of these aircraft until they can be checked for safety.

Hall noted that Sunday’s catastrophe in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa happened less than six months after the Lion Air crash in Jakarta, Indonesia, in late October.

“My personal feeling on this is that Boeing aircraft company ought to voluntarily itself ground these aircraft because of the similarities between these two accidents,” Hall said. “It’s a brand new aircraft, and we had such a remarkable safety record in aviation, that I think this blip needs to be addressed by the manufacturer, and they need to do a detailed — a detailed look, and with these black boxes available, that’ll be done in a short term.”

The union representing flight attendants meanwhile said Boeing, U.S. airlines, the NTSB and the FAA need to address safety concerns.

"Crew and passengers are expressing concern about the 737 MAX 8 following a second crash, with similar characteristics to the Lion Air Flight 610 crash," Association of Flight Attendants-CWA International President Sara Nelson said in a statement. "It is vitally important that U.S. airlines work with Boeing, the FAA, and the NTSB to address concerns and take steps to ensure confidence for the traveling public and working crews."

U.S. airlines that fly 737 Max 8 planes have not indicated any immediate plans to stop flying the jets.

In response to Twitter messages from apparently worried passengers, Southwest Airlines confirmed it has 34 of the 737 Max 8 version of the planes and is “confident in the safety of our fleet.”

"We remain confident in the safety and airworthiness of our entire fleet of more than 750 Boeing 737 aircraft, and we don’t have any changes planned to 737 MAX operations." the airline said in a statement.

American Airlines said it has 24 of the 737 Max 8 aircraft and that it will “closely monitor the investigation in Ethiopia.” In a subsequent statement, the airline said it continues to have "confidence in the safe operation of all of our aircraft, including the 737 MAX 8."

United Airlines said it doesn’t have any 737 Max 8 jets but has 14 of the 737 Max 9 versions in its fleet.

“We have made clear that the Max aircraft is safe and that our pilots are property trained to fly the aircraft safely,” a United Airlines spokesman said.

The Aviation Capital Group, which leases aircraft to airlines around the world, is also a Boeing customer, according to the company website. It was not immediately clear whether it owns the 737 Max 8, the Max 9 or both. NBC News reached out to Aviation Capital for comment but did not immediately hear back.

Canadian airlines such as WestJet, Sunwing Airlines and Air Canada also have 737 Max 8 jets or the Max 9 version in their fleets, according to the Boeing website.

The Air Canada pilots' association called on the government "to take proactive action to ensure the safety of the Canadian traveling public."

"No one is more invested in the well-being of passengers and crew than those who operate the aircraft upon which they fly," the pilots' association said in a statement.

On Monday, Argentina's airline pilots association halted its members from flying the jets, Reuters reported, while Mexican airline Aeromexico grounded its six 737 Max 8s. The company said in a statement that those flights would be covered by other planes in its fleet.

Similarly, China and Indonesia joined Ethiopia in halting the use of 737 Max 8 and Max 9 jets while the investigation of Sunday's crash is underway.

Chinese aviation authorities suspended the operation of all 737 Max 8 planes run by domestic airlines such as Xiamen and Shandong.

In addition, Cayman Airways, which operates in the Caribbean and has regular flights to and from the U.S., said in a statement it, too, was suspending all 737 Max 8 flights “until more information is received.”

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg sent a letter to employees on Monday that said the company was cooperating with the NTSB and Ethiopian authorities.

Muilenburg said the company has the “deepest sympathies” for the families of those who died on the Ethiopian Airlines flight and encouraged employees to “stay focused on the important work we do.”

“As we partner with regulators and the Ethiopian Airlines investigation unfolds, it’s necessary that we stay centered on the facts and avoid speculation,” the letter said. “Speculating about the cause of the accident or discussing it without all the necessary facts is not appropriate and could compromise the integrity of the investigation.”

  • The United States joined Europe and others in grounding all Boeing 737 Max  airplanes on Wednesday. 
  • Around the world, hundreds of flights have been canceled after the plane was involved in second deadly crash on Sunday in Ethiopia. 
  • Southwest, American, and United Airlines operate the plane in the United States. 

President Trump announced Wednesday that the United States would join Europe and many other countries in grounding all Boeing 737 Max airplanes after the model was involved in a second deadly crash on Sunday.

At the time of Trump’s announcement, dozens of the planes — operated by American, Southwest and United — were still airborne. The FAA confirmed that it was ordering the temporary grounding of Boeing 737 Max aircraft "operated by US airlines or in US territory."

American Airlines said in a statement to Business Insider that it had 24 aircraft affected by the directive and was "working to rebook customers as quickly as possible."

At least six American flights were canceled between New York’s LaGuardia Airport and Miami. It’s possible that the so-called red-eye cross-country flights Wednesday evening could also be affected.

Southwest Airlines, which earlier on Wednesday had said it had waived change fee and was working with passengers who wanted to avoid flying on the aircraft in question, said it was "seeking confirmation and additional guidance from the FAA."

Southwest has the largest exposure to the aircraft, with 34 of the planes.

United Airlines, which operates 14 737 Max 9’s, said it would have to cancel 40 flights per day.

"We do not anticipate a significant operational impact as a result of this order," a spokesperson told Business Insider. "We will continue to work with our customers to help minimize any disruption to their travel."

Boeing’s chief executive Dennis Muilenburg said in a statement that the company had consulted federal authorities and recommend the temporary restriction to the FAA "out of an abundance of caution."

"We are supporting this proactive step out of an abundance of caution," the statement read. "Safety is a core value at Boeing for as long as we have been building airplanes; and it always will be. There is no greater priority for our company and our industry. We are doing everything we can to understand the cause of the accidents in partnership with the investigators, deploy safety enhancements and help ensure this does not happen again."

Boeing 737 MAX 8 American Air Laguardia New York

  • The United States grounded all Boeing 737 Max 8 planes on Wednesday following two deadly crashes involving the aircraft in the past five months. 
  • President Donald Trump announced on Wednesday that he is issuing an order to ground all Boeing 737 Max aircraft effective immediately. 
  • Canada, Europe, and nearly fifty other countries also grounded the jet this week following the Ethiopian Airlines disaster on Sunday. 
  • American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, and United Airlines operate the aircraft type in the US.

The United States on Wednesday joined Canada, Europe, and nearly fifty other countries in banning the Boeing 737 Max aircraft from its airspace following Sunday’s Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed 157 people.

President Donald Trump announced on Wednesday that he is issuing an order to ground all 737 Max aircraft effective immediately. 

"We're going to be ordering an emergency order to ground all 737 Max 8 and the 737 Max 9 and planes associated with that line," the President said. "Any plane currently in the air will go to its destination and thereafter be grounded until further notice."

The move to ban the plane follows calls by a number of US lawmakers to ground the plane on Tuesday. 

In a statement, Boeing said it recommended to the Federal Aviation Administration that the 737 Max be grounded "out of an abundance of caution and in order to reassure the flying public of the aircraft's safety."

Wednesday's decision marks a stunning about-face for the FAA. The agency said as late as Tuesday evening that it saw no reason to ground the 737 Max aircraft operating in the US. 

Boeing 737 MAXThe US is the last major operator of the Boeing 737 Max to ground the aircraft type. China, the country with the largest number of Max aircraft, grounded its fleet on Sunday. The Europe Union banned the plane from its airspace on Tuesday.

The 737 MAX's major US customers include Southwest, American, and United. Southwest Airlines is the 737 Max 8's largest customer with 34 planes in its fleet. American operates 24 of the aircraft while United flies 14 of the larger 737 Max 9 variant. 

"Earlier today the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) informed us that based on new information, they are grounding the United States Boeing 737 MAX fleet out of an abundance of caution," American Airlines said in a statement to Business Insider. "Our teams will be working to rebook customers as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience."

United Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 9Southwest and United Airlines were not immediately available for comment.

There are 371 Boeing 737 Max aircraft in operation around the world.

On Sunday, Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET302 crashed shortly after taking off from Addis Ababa Bole International Airport. The crashed killed all 157 passengers and crew on board the four-month-old plane.

It's the second nearly-brand new Boeing 737 MAX 8 airliner in recent months to be involved in a fatal crash. In October, Lion Air Flight JT610 crashed in the Java Sea shortly after taking off from Jakarta, Indonesia, killing all 189 people on board.

On Tuesday, Boeing announced that it will roll out an updated version of the 737 Max's control software in the coming weeks. According to Boeing, the update has been in the works since the Lion Air crash. However, the implementation of the software was reportedly delayed by the 35-day government shutdown that lasted from late December to early February. 

Ethiopian police officers walk past the debris of the Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET 302 plane crash, near the town of Bishoftu, near Addis Ababa, Ethiopia March 12, 2019. REUTERS/Baz RatnerAt the heart of the controversy surrounding the 737 Max is MCAS, the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System. To fit the Max's larger, more fuel-efficient engines, Boeing had to redesign the way it mounts engines on the 737. This change disrupted the plane's center of gravity and caused the Max to have a tendency to tip its nose upward during flight, increasing the likelihood of a stall. MCAS is designed to automatically counteract that tendency and point the nose of the plane downward.

Initial reports from the Lion Air investigation, however, indicate that a faulty sensor reading may have triggered MCAS shortly after the flight took off. Observers fear that a similar thing may have happened in Sunday's Ethiopian Airlines flight.

The Boeing 737 is the best selling airliner of all time. Since 1965, the American aviation giant has taken orders for a whopping 15,000 737s. Over the years, Boeing has introduced four distinct generations of the 737. The latest is the 737 Max that entered service in 2017. Thus far, Boeing has orders for roughly 5,000 737 Max jets, making it the fastest selling plane in company history.

Boeing 737 MAX cockpitBoeing lists the 737 Max 8 at $121.6 million. However, according to industry research from Teal Group, buyers usually receive a 50% to 55% discount on the planes.

The 737 Max is currently built alongside the previous generation 737NG (Boeing 737-600,700,800, and 900) at Boeing's Renton, Washington factory.

By the end of 2018, Boeing ramped up production of the 737 to 52 aircraft a month. This year, it plans to produce 57 a month.

Last year, Boeing delivered 256 Max aircraft to customers, representing nearly half of all 737 deliveries.

Boeing Commercial Airplanes, the company's airliner division, has a backlog 5,870 planes valued at more than $400 billion. As it currently stands, the 4,699 yet-to-be-delivered 737s represent 80% of that backlog.

          The 1935 plane crash that almost destroyed Boeing      Cache   Translate Page      

Boeing, the world's largest aerospace company, has lost $29 billion in market value since Sunday's crash of an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 jet, with all 157 people on board killed. Most countries and airlines have grounded their 737 MAX 8 aircraft, U.S. lawmakers and others have called for the FAA to follow suit, and Boeing's fastest-selling aircraft ever now faces uncertain skies.

Boeing has a lot riding on the 737 MAX. But 85 years ago, it bet everything on its Model 299, later called the B-17 — and it nearly lost everything when its "Flying Fortress" crashed during a key test flight. Two highly experienced test pilots died.

In 1934, the U.S. government forced Boeing to spin off United Airlines and United Technologies, and rival "Douglas was really starting to dominate the American aircraft industry," Roger Connor, a curator at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, told NPR's Hidden Brain in February. "Their DC-2 was becoming the hot passenger airliner and was quickly putting Boeing into the background in that industry."

Company founder Bill Boeing resigned in 1934, and Claire Egtvedt took over and essentially "bet the company" on the Model 299, a four-engine next-generation bomber, Boeing in-house historian Mike Lombardi recounted last year to Seattle's KIRO radio. The U.S. Army Air Corps, precursor of the Air Force, announced a head-to-head contest for a major government contract in 1935; Boeing, Douglas, and Martin entered bombers, and Boeing was the clear frontrunner. As Seattle historian Feliks Banel recounts, the Boeing plane crashed on its second flight, on Oct. 30, 1935.

"Everything the company had went into this prototype and there it was, a burning wreck on the field," Lombardi told Banel. "We didn't have an airplane to finish and Douglas won. So that was the end of the Boeing Company." The Army placed a large order for Douglas B-18 Bolo bombers — but using a loophole, it also ordered 13 Boeing B-17s in January 1936. That "relatively small contract literally saved the company," Banel said. The B-17 proved to be the superior aircraft, and more than 12,000 were built during World War II.

The crash of the Model 299 — attributed to human error and technological innovation — also led to the creation of the preflight checklist, Hidden Brain explains below. The Boeing part starts at the 3:40 mark.


          USA erteilen nun doch Startverbot für Boeing 737 Max      Cache   Translate Page      

Darf nicht mehr in Deutschland fliegen: die Boeing 737 MAX 8.

Nach den EU-Staaten und zahlreichen anderen Ländern haben nun auch die USA ein Startverbot für Maschinen der Boeing 737 Max erlassen. Alle diese Maschinen müssten mit sofortiger Wirkung am Boden bleiben, sagte US-Präsident Donald Trump am Mittwoch in Washington. Eine ausführliche Mitteilung der US-Luftfahrtbehörde FAA werde in Kürze folgen, kündigte er an.

Trump reagierte damit auf den Absturz einer Boeing 737 Max 8 der Ethiopian Airlines kurz nach dem Start am Sonntag in Äthiopien. Weniger als fünf Monate zuvor war eine baugleiche Maschine der Fluggesellschaft Lion Air in Indonesien abgestürzt.

Die FAA war zunehmend unter Druck geraten. Nach dem Absturz der Boeing 737 Max 8 in Äthiopien hatten Luftfahrtbehörden in Europa, Australien und weiten Teilen Asiens Flugverbote für alle baugleichen Maschinen verhängt. Zahlreiche Fluggesellschaften ließen ihre Boeing 737 Max 8 vorsichtshalber am Boden. Wenige Stunden vor den USA hatte dann auch Kanada am Mittwoch ein Start-, Lande- und Überflugverbot für alle Maschinen der Boeing 737-Max-Reihe erlassen.

Der kanadische Transportminister Marc Garneau sagte in Ottawa: „Es ist bedauerlich, aber Sicherheit muss ganz oben auf der Tagesordnung stehen.“ Die Entscheidung sei auf Grundlage von neuen Informationen gefällt worden, die das Ministerium am Mittwochmorgen erhalten habe. Experten seines Ministeriums hätten damit den Flugverlauf der in Äthiopien abgestürzten Boeing 737 Max 8 mit dem der Maschine verglichen, die im Oktober ebenfalls kurz nach dem Start in Indonesien abgestürzt war. Dabei hätten sich Ähnlichkeiten ergeben.

Garneau betonte, es handele sich um eine Vorsichtsmaßnahme. Bislang sei kein Zusammenhang erwiesen, die Absturzursache in Äthiopien sei weiter unbekannt. Mit Blick auf die USA sagte der Minister: „Wir haben sie heute Morgen darüber informiert, dass wir diese Entscheidung getroffen haben.“

Die US-Luftfahrtbehörde FAA hatte am Dienstagabend zunächst mitgeteilt, sie sehe weiterhin keinen Anlass für ein Startverbot. Bislang hätten die Überprüfungen keine Grundlage für ein Startverbot ergeben. Auch hätten Luftfahrtbehörden anderer Länder der FAA keine Daten zur Verfügung gestellt, die Maßnahmen erforderlich machten.

Die meisten Flugzeuge der Boeing-737-Max-Reihe in den USA hat Southwest Airlines im Einsatz, die Fluggesellschaft verfügt über 34 Boeing 737 Max 8. American Airlines — die größte US-Fluggesellschaft — setzt 24 Boeing 737 Max 8 ein. Für United Airlines fliegen 14 Maschinen vom größeren Typ Boeing 737 Max 9.

Nach dem Absturz in Äthiopien hatten sich Flugbegleiter von Southwest Airlines und von American Airlines für ein Startverbot für die Boeing 737 Max 8 ausgesprochen. Die Gewerkschaft APFA, die die mehr als 27 000 Flugbegleiter von American Airlines vertritt, und die Gewerkschaft TWU, in der 17 000 Flugbegleiter von Southwest Airlines organisiert sind, forderten einen entsprechenden Schritt.
