@AeronewsRO Boeing could need between 3-6 months to fix and install new software on #737MAX aircraft. The repairs could cost at least $500 million and delay deliveries of new planes on order, analysts estimate.
@jonostrower Citing financial disclosure rules, Boeing has declined to provide the number of 737 Max aircraft in the hands of customers globally as of the date of grounding. Until then, the number from the FAA stands at 387 as of March 11, 74 in the U.S. #JT610 #ET302/
@ThierryU Any slight or attack on Ethiopian Airlines quickly felt like a personal attack. We’ve probably never been as protective of or embraced @flyethiopian as tightly as we have over there last few days. #AfricaUnites #WereAllEthiopian.
@Vinamralongani Make hay while the sun shines couldn’t be more apt. No airline will cancel their orders especially because the next best alternative is booked for years. This is nothing but  rethoric which will help airlines negotiate a huge compensation from @Boeing #BOEING737MAX.
@WandrMe Just confirmed with @AireonLLC CEO Don Thoma that the company did deliver data to Transport Canada overnight, helping to drive the decision to ground the #737MAX. #AvGeek #ET302.
