Families of the Ethiopia plane crash victims to wait longer for bodies

Families of the Ethiopia plane crash victims to wait longer for bodies

Transport Minister Blade Nzimande says his department will work with its Ethiopian counterpart to investigate this weekend's fatal Ethiopian Airlines crash.

According to Opher Dach, consul of Israel's embassy in Ethiopia, the team hopes to join the crash site on Tuesday.

Chinese relatives of victims who died in the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 airliner visit the scene south of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Wednesday, March 13, 2019.

A labor union that represents almost 50,000 flight attendants is sounding the alarm about the Boeing 737 Max 8, the plane model that has now been involved in two deadly crashes in five months.

In addition to Ethiopian Airlines, China's Aviation Authority, as well as Indonesia and Cayman Airlines, have grounded their 737 Max-8 jets.

Also on the flight was Isabella Beryl Achie, from Homabay county about 300 kilometres west of Nairobi.

Flight 302 was bound for Nairobi when it plunged to the ground shortly after takeoff, killing all 157 people on board.

Man Says He Missed Doomed Ethiopian Airlines Flight by Minutes: 'I Collapsed'

In response, the world's biggest planemaker, which has seen billions of dollars wiped off its market value, said it understood the decisions but retained "full confidence" in the 737 MAX and had safety as its priority. "In fact he was allowed to turn back", he said.

A Greek man said he missed the Ethiopian Airlines flight that crashed just after taking off from Addis Ababa by mere minutes, in a Facebook post that has now been shared thousands of times. On Tuesday, the United Kingdom joined several other countries in grounding the company's newest, big-selling 737 MAX 8 jet over safety concerns. "Chief Exec's personal plea to Trump leaves more questions than answers", he said. And Nikki Haley, Trump's former United Nations ambassador, has been nominated to join Boeing's board.

"The two dozen 737 Max aircraft in the American Airlines fleet are the only ones equipped with two AOA [Angle of Attack] displays, one for each pilot, providing an extra layer of awareness and warning", the union said.

They all had one thing in common, he said, "a spirit to serve the people of the world and to make it a better place for us all".

Mr GebreMariam told CNN his airline's pilots had received additional training on the flight procedures involving the 737 MA after the Lion Air crash.

In both the Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines crashes, the airplane immediately showed signs of trouble, with an erratic flight path that ascended and then descended before the airliner crashed minutes later.

Ethiopian Airlines made the announcement on Tuesday, acknowledging that the identification of some victims will take much longer due to the impact and ensuing fire.
