Similarities between the flight path in the Lion Air incident and last week's Ethiopian Airlines crash have raised fresh questions about the system, but so far there is no evidence on whether the same software is again a potential issue.

Montreal-based Air Canada has said it operated 75 737 MAX flights daily out of a total schedule of approximately 1,600 daily flights system-wide.

Ethiopian Airlines CEO Tewolde GebreMariam said the doomed flight's captain was an experienced aviator with more than 8,000 flight hours. A link between the two accidents makes blame more likely to lie with Boeing and less likely with the airline.

Boeing, the world's biggest planemaker, has said the 737 MAX is safe, though it plans to roll out a software upgrade in coming weeks.

Trump and Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed exchanged condolences Friday, Abiy said on Twitter, with the USA president praising Ethiopian Airlines as a "strong institution" and offering technical support.

In a statement, Boeing said it had "full confidence" in the plane.

U.S. President Donald Trump spoke by telephone on Friday with Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed about the crash, according to the White House. "It's just in the Ethiopian case, it occurred right after takeoff and continued", said Jeff Guzzetti, former National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigator.

"Whenever you change this stuff you better be damn sure you don't create some other problem", Diehl said.

Suspected white supremacist charged with murder after New Zealand mosque shootings
A short distance away, 39 people were being treated in hospital for gunshot wounds and other injuries inflicted in the massacre. He said his mother, who was at the Linwood mosque with his father and brother, saw two people shot.


Investigators haven't determined the cause of either crash, but Boeing would face large payouts to the families of passengers if the Max plane is found to be at fault.

Boeing already faces lawsuits over the Lion Air crash, and lawyers say the second crash strengthens their argument that Boeing knew the plane was defective and let it fly anyway.

Krause says other pilots around the world should have known as well.

Air Canada and United Airlines on Friday became the first major carriers in North America to warn of negative financial implications to business as a effect of the grounding of the Boeing planes.

It could be a lengthy grounding for the 34 Southwest and 24 American Max 8s at Dallas Love Field Airport.

The aircraft's ground speed after departure was unusually high, the Reuters source said, reaching around 400 knots (460 miles per hour) rather than the 200 to 250 knots that is more typical minutes after departure.

Identifying the remains of the 157 people killed in an Ethiopian Airlines plane crash may take up to six months, the airline said in a document seen by AFP on Saturday.
