After two crashes in five months, the American plane manufacturer is under pressure. Many countries have grounded their Boeing 737 Max 8 planes.
Black box data from last weekend's Ethiopian Airlines plane crash has indicated "clear similarities" with October's Lion Air jet crash. The MAX 8 crashed shortly after takeoff, killing everybody on board.
The European Aviation Safety Agency has banned Boeing 737 MAX 8 flights in its airspace following last Sunday's Ethiopian Airlines tragedy. It came after Germany, France, and Britain announced national prohibitions.
All of Boeing's best-selling planes have now been grounded since the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines flight. Earlier, President Donald Trump announced an emergency order to ban the airliners in US airspace.
The US Federal Aviation Administration has ordered Boeing to make changes to its 737 Max 8. However, it said the new airliner was still safe to fly in the United States.
