Some Calgary flights cancelled after Canada grounds Boeing 737 MAX jets

Boeing Has Grounded All Boeing 737 Max Planes Worldwide Over Safety Fears Boeing Grounds Entire Fleet Of 737 Max Planes After New Crash Evidence Emerges

Following last October's Lion Air crash in Indonesia, investigators said the pilots had appeared to struggle with an automated system created to keep the plane from stalling, a new feature of the jet.

A 737 Max 8 used by Ethiopian Airlines crashed soon after take-off on March 10 from Addis Ababa, killing all 157 passengers and crew.

"American has re-routed aircraft throughout our network to cover as much of the MAX schedule as we can", said an airline spokesperson.

Both planes struggled to maintain altitude in the minutes after takeoff.

Following the latest crash, the European Union and several countries banned the aircraft model from their airspace.

In a key step toward unearthing the cause of the Ethiopian Airlines crash, flight recorders from the shattered plane arrived Thursday in France for analysis, although the agency in charge of the review said it was unclear whether the data could be retrieved.

The FAA said new satellite data and evidence that showed the movements of the Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 were similar to those of Lion Air Flight 610. All 189 people aboard were killed in that incident.

The ban is indefinite and will remain in place until the agency makes a new decision on the matter.

'You're grounding a class of aircraft base on nothing but political pressure.

Fox News' Tucker Carlson Calls Iraqis "Semiliterate Primitive Monkeys" in Surfaced Recording
Fox News representatives didn't immediately respond to a request for comment on the Miss Teen USA audio. On his show Monday night, Carlson maintained on his show that he owed nobody an apology.

Thousands of kilometres away, distraught families were demanding answers as they visited the deep black crater where the plane smashed into a field outside the capital, disintegrating on impact.

Ethiopian Airlines, Africa's largest carrier, sent the boxes to France because it does not have the equipment to analyse the data.

Analysts say any trade or safety ructions are unlikely to disturb a trend that sees China balance aircraft orders over time between Europe and the U.S.to achieve political balance.

French aviation experts began analyzing the so-called black boxes Thursday. But the pilot had reported difficulties and asked to return to Addis Ababa, Ethiopian Airlines has said.

It is not yet clear whether the anti-stall system was the cause of the Ethiopian Airlines crash.

The BEA has experience with global air crashes, and its expertise is often sought whenever an Airbus plane crashes because the manufacturer is based in France.

The BEA isn't saying how long it will take to analyse the recorders - which are actually orange, despite their nickname.

So far, there are cancellations on Friday at the Region of Waterloo International Airport for the WestJet flight to and from Calgary, the company confirming that these are due to the groundings.
