The company doesn't have any proof that the buggy software was the reason for two air crashes with Boeing 737 MAX, although the similar light paths before the crash made the company take into account this issue as well.

As it was reported, Boeing Aircraft Corporation recommended the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) the temporary suspension of operations of the entire global fleet of 371 737 MAX aircraft because of the air crash in Ethiopia.

The State Aviation Administration of Ukraine postponed the flights of Boeing 737 MAX 8 and Boeing 737 MAX 9 due to the crashes in Ethiopia, the accurate reasons of are still being investigated.

Earlier, we reported that an Ethiopian Airlines plane flying from Addis Ababa to Kenya crashed in Ethiopia. 149 passengers and 8 crew members were on board of the Boeing 737-800 MAX. The crash occurred on March 10, at 8:44 am local time. The airline representatives said that the flight ET 302 crashed near the city of Bishoftu, 62 kilometers south-east of Addis Ababa. The Ethiopian broadcasting company, citing a source in the airlines, said that no one survived as a result of the plane crash. “There are no survivors aboard the plane that was carrying passengers from 33 countries,” the message says. This is the second recent crash of the latest version of Boeing’s workhorse narrowbody jet that first entered service in 2017.
