"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.

Members of the Democrat Party in the USA initially accused the Trump Administration of dragging its feet on grounding the Max-8 jets to protect Boeing profits - the company donated US$1 million to Trump's inauguration and Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg is a regular confidant of the President. Boeing is working on improvements to the plane's flight-control system and the FAA plans to publish a related directive to operators "no later" than April. The shares have fallen about 13 percent since the crash, losing more than $25 billion of market value.

Warren further urged Congress to hold hearings on whether the Trump administration has chose to put lives at risk for Boeing's profits.

Most airlines have spare planes positioned throughout the country to deal with mechanical and weather delays, he said. Air Canada has 24 Max 8 aircraft (out of 184 in its main fleet), which it uses mainly for domestic and USA routes, while Calgary-based WestJet Airlines Ltd. has 13 Max 8s (out of about 150 planes).

"It is important to allow the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration), NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) and other agencies to conduct thorough investigations to ensure they have as much information as possible to make informed decisions", Wicker said. "This evidence, together with newly refined satellite data available to FAA this morning, led to this decision".

Kim Kardashian Tweets Support for Ending the Death Penalty
The order will not alter any current conviction or sentence, or lead to the release of any prisoner now on death row. Newsom may have a point to at least looking into the state's approach to the death penalty.


The FAA gave an emergency order, temporarily grounding the planes over the two crashes "that warrant further investigation of the possibility of shared cause".

But Singapore and Australia's aviation authorities - following China, Indonesia and others - said temporary suspension of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in and out of their airports was necessary during a safety review. It also required that Canadian airlines who operate the Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 aircraft, put new procedures in place and implement additional crew training.

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, created to make an already safe aircraft even safer. Although there is no proof of any link, the twin disasters have spooked passengers.

"Travellers can cancel their flights, but would not be eligible to claim compensation if they decide to do so", Henrik Zillmer, the chief executive of AirHelp, told the New York Times.

On another flight, the co-pilot said that seconds after engaging the autopilot, the nose pitched downward and the plane began descending at 1,200 to 1,500 feet (365 to 460 meters) per minute.

Two Sussex MPs switch to back Theresa May’s second Brexit deal
Mr Zeichner slammed the government for "recklessly wasting yet more time in order to force a false binary choice" over Brexit. Conservative MP John Baron then pushed Mrs May to back a no-deal Brexit, arguing "no deal is better than a bad deal".


"The UK Civil Aviation Authority has been closely monitoring the situation, however, as we do not now have sufficient information from the flight data recorder we have, as a precautionary measure, issued instructions to stop any commercial passenger flights from any operator arriving, departing or overflying UK airspace".

Aireon's space-based system can monitor data from aircraft equipped with Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) transponders.

Ethiopia was searching for a European agency to take the black box from Sunday's plane crash for analysis.

"But at the end of the day, these sorts of issues are usually resolved with the fact that they're still flying in the US suggesting this will be the ultimate outcome", Raviv said in a note to clients.

"The pilot reported flight control problems and requested to turn back".
