"Similar causes may have contributed to both events", European regulators said, referring to the Lion Air crash in Indonesia that killed 189 people previous year.

Voice recordings pick up the flight crew's voices, as well as other sounds inside the cockpit.

USA and Ethiopian aviation safety officials discussed on Tuesday whether the flight data and cockpit voice recorders from Ethiopian Airlines flight 302, which crashed on Sunday on a flight to Nairobi, would go to Washington or London for download and analysis.

A man who missed the ill-fated Ethiopian flight that claimed the lives of many have taken to Facebook to share an emotional post on how his life was saved.

"Our goal is to operate our schedule with every available aircraft in our fleet to meet our customers' expectations during the busy spring travel season", Southwest said, adding that customers booked on Max 8 flights can rebook without additional fees or fare differences.

Gebremariam says at least 100 of these jets have now been grounded in several countries, the latest being Lebanon.

Captain Marvel impresses at the box office

However, there is no way of knowing if anything other than coincidence is to blame.

The still unexplained crash, which happened just after take-off from Addis Ababa, followed another disaster involving a Boeing 737 MAX in Indonesia five months ago that killed 189 people. Boeing's 737 historically have an outstanding safety record, and no potential causes - including human error, random malfunction or terrorism - have yet been ruled out.

The plane had roared low over the field, spewing white smoke and debris, before swerving sharply and crashing, witnesses at the scene told Reuters. Those details don't immediately match with the Lion Air crash. He asked for clearance to return to Addis Ababa, which he was granted.

In recordings of the pilot's conversations with controllers, he didn't indicate any external problems with the jet or the flight, like a bird collision, CEO Tewolde Gebremariam told The Wall Street Journal. He made it to the gate just two minutes after the cut off time for boarding, and was therefore refused entry onto the plane.

"At this point, based on the information available, we do not have any basis to issue new guidance to operators", Charlie Miller, Boeing's vice president of communications, said in a statement.

Southwest Airlines, the largest USA domestic carrier, exclusively flies Boeing 737 aircraft and has 34 of the Max 8s in its fleet. What we can say is we don't have the capability to probe it here in Ethiopia, " Begashaw said.

According to the daily, many airlines had schedules planned around deliveries of the 737 Max, which could be affected by a prolonged grounding.
