The flight data and cockpit voice recorders were recovered from the wreckage of the Ethiopian jet.

On Monday, Australia's Civil Aviation Safety Authority suspended all 737 Max flights in and out of Australia That action followed China's decision to temporarily ground 737 Max planes operating in the nation. In total, there were at least 11 reports about the Boeing 737 MAX 8 logged on the Aviation Safety Reporting System between April 2018 and December 2018. Two Israelis were killed in the crash, and members of an emergency response team from the country said they are frustrated because they have not been able to access the crash site.

The airline, which has 34 of the 72 USA -based Max planes that were in operation, cancelled 39 flights Thursday due to the grounding.

Former NTSB investigator Jeff Guzzetti claimed the investigation of the black boxes should have happened much sooner, and the fact that it didn't is 'negligent in my view'.

The airline said "if the Boeing 737 MAX-8 aircraft fails to meet any of the very stringent requirements, it will not be added to the fleet".

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.

Norwegian Air has said it will seek compensation from Boeing for costs and lost revenue after grounding its 737 Max fleet.

Boeing's shares have sunk 10 percent since Sunday's crash, wiping more than $20 billion off the company's market value.

Attention has focussed since the Lion Air crash on an automated anti-stall system in the 737 Max that dips the plane's nose down.

The MAX series is Boeing's fastest-selling model, but it is still relatively new with fewer than 500 in service.

Yesterday the FAA said 737 Max airliners would not be allowed to fly until new software had been "tested, approved and installed", a process likely to last until May, according to United States politicians briefed on the situation.

The delayed flight ET302 took off from Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa at 08:38 local time (05:38 GMT) and was bound for Kenyan capital Nairobi.

The Max 8 that crashed on Sunday was one of 30 ordered as part of Ethiopian Airlines' expansion. But if the crash was caused by pilot error, then the problem could be corrected by training, and the grounding could be short, Goelz said.

The FAA was prompted to ground all Boeing 737 Max aircraft after data found the flight paths of two planes which both crashed months apart were similar. "Moreover, the larger risk is the reputational concern for Boeing".
