The Egyptian Embassy in Addis Ababa is following up with Ethiopian authorities to recover the bodies of the six Egyptians on the fatal Ethiopian Airlines crash, said Yasser Mahmoud Hashim, Assistant Foreign Minister for Consular Affairs and Egyptian Expatriates.
It was an emotional and heart-wrenching scene on Wednesday at the crash site of the Ethiopian Airlines flight. He had been scheduled to travel to Nairobi for an environmental conference, according to reports.
"There is no decision made yet on where to send it".
However, it was debunked by the users who went to the comments to post the original story of the Guardian that dates back to 2013 from Afghanistan, when a Boeing plane crashed after taking off from Afghanistan killing six crew members. On Tuesday, the United Kingdom joined several other countries in grounding the company's newest, big-selling 737 MAX 8 jet over safety concerns.
"Thus far, our review shows no systemic performance issues and provides no basis to order grounding the aircraft", acting FAA Administrator Daniel K. Elwell said in a statement.
Norwegian Air Shuttles says it will seek compensation from aircraft maker Boeing after the low-priced carrier grounded its fleet of 737 MAX 8 aircraft.
China and Indonesia grounded similar fleet following the crash with Australia and Singapore banning the model from their airspace.
"He told me gently not to protest and say thank you to God because I am the only passenger who did not enter the flight ET 302 which is missing", Mavropoulos said.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Asrat Begashaw said the airline has "a range of options" for the data and voice records of the flight's last moments.
Boeing's CEO Dennis Muilenburg also spoke with President Donald Trump and reiterated that the 737 Max 8 is safe, the company said.
That has left the US Federal Aviation Administration isolated in arguing that the Max should continue flying, challenging its standing as the industry's leading regulator.
He said he was taken to the airport police department to verify his identity and was questioned for being the lone passenger who did not board the doomed flight.
The ill-fated flight was packed with humanitarian workers and worldwide experts, many of whom were bound for a major United Nations environmental summit in the Kenyan capital. Its technical team, meanwhile, joined American, Israeli, Kenyan and other aviation experts in the investigation led by Ethiopian authorities. "I express my condolences to those who lost loved ones in the crash".
Given problems of identification at the charred disaster site, Ethiopian Airlines said it would take at least five days to start handing remains to families.
