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

The Ethiopia Airlines flight 302 crashed on Sunday a few minutes after takeoff, killing all 157 people on board.

The airlines say they are confident in the safety of the fleet, however, Canadian travellers are concerned the airlines still haven't grounded the model.

The Federal Aviation Administration ordered changes to the planes' flight manuals and procedures in November - and Ethiopian Air says it followed those guidelines.

"It's just hard to accept that this has happened", he said in a telephone interview from Kenya on Tuesday.

USA officials say the aircraft are still safe to fly.

Flight ET302 crashed just minutes after it took off Sunday morning.

But Elwell said no foreign civil aviation authorities had provided data that would warrant action.

The Ethiopian Airlines will transport the bodies to Cairo while the Egyptian Embassy in Addis Ababa works to obtain death certificates for the victims, in coordination with the relevant authorities in Ethiopia, Hashim said.

Kenya suffered the greatest fatalities - 32 - in the crash, the flight having been headed to Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

Although there is no proof of any link, the twin disasters have spooked passengers, led to the grounding of most of Boeing's 737 MAX fleet and hammered shares in the USA planemaker, the world's largest.

Boeing's CEO Dennis Muilenburg also spoke with President Donald Trump and reiterated that the 737 Max 8 is safe, the company said.

The investigation into the Ethiopian crash is still in its early stages, and experts have warned against drawing conclusions, despite similarities between the two deadly disasters. Most are caused by a unique chain of human and technical factors.

In Africa, the plane has been supplied to Ethiopian Airlines and Mauritania Airlines. That leaves some leeway for the U.S. FAA to decide its own approach.

Clearance for an immediate return was granted. The airline has identifying them should take five days.

Boeing shares fell 6.1 percent on Tuesday, bringing losses to 11.15 percent since the crash, the steepest two-day loss for the stock since July 2009.

The drop has lopped $26.65 billion off Boeing's market value.

European regulators have grounded the model, along with China, Australia, India and others around the world. It now has 10 Max 8 planes in its fleet.

"I do not know about you, but I do not want Albert Einstein to be my pilot".

"I learned that the flight crashed nearly just after it took off".

He told CNN the airline's pilots had received additional training on the flight procedures involving the 737 MA after the Lion Air crash. A focus there is the role of a software system created to push the plane down, alongside airline training and fix standards.

Numerous passengers were heading to a United Nation's environmental conference in Nairobi.

Two teen sisters - 13-year-old Anushka Dixit and 14-year-old Ashka - their mother, Kosha Vaidya, 37, and father, Prerit Dixit, 45, were killed.
