Boeing upgrades software on crisis-hit 737 MAX after deadly crash

Rescuers search at the scene of an Ethiopian Airlines flight that crashed shortly after takeoff at the scene at Hejere near Bishoftu

The record-breaking plane's debut was supposed to be a more extravagant affair open to the public, but the manufacturer limited the event to employees only following the recent Ethiopian Airlines crash involving a Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft, reported Travel and Leisure.

Iran's civil aviation authority said Friday it had banned Boeing 737 Max jets from its airspace, the latest in a series of countries to do so after a deadly crash.

As families wait for the results from the investigation into the cause of the crash, Ethiopian Airlines is planning to hold a service on Sunday in Addis Ababa, at the Kidist Selassie, or Holy Trinity Cathedral, where numerous country's past rulers are buried beneath its pink stone spires.

A mass memorial service for the dead is planned in Addis Ababa to take place Sunday, one week after the crash.

Dagmawit said temporary death certificate had been given, and a final one would be issued in two weeks time. The French agency said in a tweet it had not listened to the audio files and that the data had been transferred to Ethiopian investigators.

Five airlines fly the 737 Max 8 and 9 jets out of Orlando International Airport, including Southwest, American, WestJet, Air Canada and Gol.

Air Canada announced on Friday that it would suspend its financial guidance for the first quarter and full year of 2019 due to uncertainty caused by the suspension of Max 8 flights and Boeing's recent decision to pause deliveries to airline customers.

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.

According to the flight data recorder, the pilots of Lion Air Flight 610 struggled to control the aircraft as the MCAS repeatedly pushed the nose down after takeoff.
