Boeing has called for its entire worldwide fleet of 737 Max planes to be grounded after severe concerns for the passenger jet's safety sparked by two fatal crashes in recent months. "What we can say is we don't have the capability to probe it here in Ethiopia", he said.
This makes the United States the last major country to pull the jet from service following Sunday's crash in Ethiopia.
China, Australia, and the United Kingdom were some of the first big names to issue bans, and now that the USA and Canada have followed suit, there are no longer any 737 MAX 8 aircraft in the skies anywhere in the world.
"This is a very fluid situation and we are working to minimize the number of guests impacted", WestJet said.
The Federal Aviation Administration has also backed the jet's airworthiness and said it was reviewing all available data. Officials say the evidence suggests the aircraft is unsafe.
Despite Boeing's assurances in the wake of the disaster, the European Union, Britain and India joined China and other countries grounding the plane or banning it from their airspace as they await the results of the crash investigation.
