Relatives of 24-year-old Jannatun Cintya Dewi, whose remains were identified Wednesday, carried her body in a coffin covered in green cloth along a road in an East Java district to the burial place, followed by dozens of people in a solemn procession.

Lion Air became the first airline to get a 737 Max, in May 2017, and has received 13 of the 201 Max planes that Boeing has delivered, according to an agency report.

Officials are also desperately trying to locate the plane's black box to find out how an almost-brand new aircraft plunged in the sea shortly after takeoff.

The devices record information about the speed, altitude and direction of the plane as well as flight crew conversations and could hold vital clues to the cause of the deadly accident.

According to the KNKT, the plane had technical problems on its previous flight from Denpasar, Bali, on Sunday, including an issue involving "unreliable airspeed".

Representatives with the US -based aviation company were flying to Indonesia Wednesday to meet with officials with budget airline Lion Air, which has ordered 50 of the new 737 MAX 8 planes at a cost of $6.2 billion.

The recorder will be examined by the National Transportation Safety Committee, said search-and-rescue agency head Muhammad Syaugi.

"We saw belongings such as life jackets, pants, clothes scattered on the seabed", Mr Syaugi said.

Divers equipped with "pinger" locators have been searching for the piece of equipment, which could hold the key to finding out why the plane, which had been delivered in August, went down. The ban was completely lifted in June. Lion has ordered 50 of the jets, worth an estimated Dollars 6.2 billion, and now operates nine.

Lion Air is one of Indonesia's youngest and biggest airlines, flying to dozens of domestic and worldwide destinations.
