Grief has engulfed the world as victims, mostly humanitarian workers, ambassador, and global experts, came from more than 35 countries.

Several videos were shared on the internet claiming it documents the moment when the Ethiopian Airlines flight got crashed but they were all debunked.

The CEO says controllers granted captain Yared Getachew permission to return to Addis Ababa at around the same time the Boeing 737 Max 8 disappeared from radar, just six minutes into the flight.

Gebremariam was asked about the similarities of the latest crash to that of Lion Air flight 610 in October 2018 off the coast of Indonesia that killed all 189 on board but said it is too early to speculate.

Though there is no evidence of links, the twin disasters have spooked passengers worldwide, led to the grounding of most of Boeing's 737 MAX aircraft, and sending shares in the world's biggest planemaker plunging.

Even as many passengers sought reassurances from travel agents that they would not be flying on a 737 MAX, the United States held out against suspension and Boeing continued to affirm its "full confidence" in the model.

She's alleged to be involved in the scandal alongisde 46 others, including Full House star Lori Loughlin . Huffman's older daughter allegedly took the test in December 2017 and received a score of 1420.

Less than five months ago, a Lion Air plane of the same Boeing model crashed into the Java Sea just 12 minutes after it took off from Indonesia.

The South African Civil Aviation Authority welcomed Comair's "self-grounding", calling the decision commendable as the airline "puts the concerns, interests, and safety of its passengers and crew first". They were 0.7 percent higher in NY around midday on Wednesday.

Boeing says it plans to update the software in coming weeks.

"We don't yet know the exact cause of the accident, and speculation is not helpful in either way but I think there are questions without answers on the airplane" he added.

Transport Minister Blade Nzimande says his department will work with its Ethiopian counterpart to investigate this weekend's fatal Ethiopian Airlines crash. But October's Lion Air crash in Indonesia sparked a debate on automation, particularly over a software system created to push the plane down to stop a stall during flight.
