Authorities are probing whether the system was a factor in the March 10 crash of the Ethiopian Airlines jet, which regulators said behaved similarly to the earlier downed plane.

These initial airflow readings from the Ethiopian jet, first reported by Reuters, refer to stall-related information needed to trigger the automated nose-down MCAS system.

"Boeing's top-selling MAX jet was grounded around the world last month after two fatal crashes involving the model in five months". The system pushes the plane's nose down if it believes it is ascending at too steep an angle.

Boeing has tried to restore its battered reputation, while continuing to insist the 737 Max is safe.

As the company finalises a software upgrade for the grounded 737 Max, it's fighting to hang onto some customers whose confidence in the best-selling jet has been shaken.

The Ethiopian Airlines and Lion Air crashes both claimed the lives of all people on board.

Some sources in the aviation industry claim that the FBI is investigating the Federal Aviation Administration's process for approving commercial aircraft.

Families in 35 nations were left bereaved when the plane crashed into a field just minutes after takeoff from the highland capital on a flight south to neighbouring Kenya.

The MCAS, which lowers the aircraft's nose if it detects a stall or loss of airspeed, was developed specifically for the 737 MAX, which has heavier engines than its predecessor, creating aerodynamic issues. Still, Garuda is sticking with Boeing and has asked the manufacturer for different aircraft.

The plane's black boxes are being examined by France's BEA air safety agency, working with American and Ethiopian investigators to determine what went wrong.

U.S. pilots complained after the Lion Air crash that they had not been fully briefed on the system.

Boeing also declined to comment on the lawsuit, but this week unveiled changes to the MCAS system that will be installed worldwide, once the FAA approves. The 737 Max 8 entered service in 2017. Officials said pilots from various airlines are now testing the system in flight simulators.
