Boeing Co.is preparing to send a safety warning to operators of its new 737 Max jets in response to the investigation of last week's fatal crash off the coast of Indonesia that left 189 dead, said a person familiar with the matter.

Earlier this week, Indonesian officials hinted that airspeed indicators played a role in the deadly October 29 crash that killed all 189 people on board.

"The bulletin reinforces existing procedures which all Air Canada crews are now trained on", Fitzpatrick said.

The 737 Max has flight control systems which.

Moments earlier, the pilots radioed a request to return to Jakarta to land, but never turned back toward the airport, according to Indonesia's safety commission and flight-tracking data.

Indonesian investigators have recovered the plane's flight data recorder, which showed that the plane's airspeed indicator malfunctioned on its last four flights.

Boeing's safety bulletin also instructs flight crews on the potential malfunction, and the ways in which pilots should respond should the error occur.

There are a total of 49 Boeing 737 Max planes in service across the US, including 26 737 Max 8 planes in service at Southwest Airlines, 16 at American Airlines and seven Max 9 planes at United Airlines.

It's unclear what's in the Boeing OMB and how it might address the AOA issue. If the problem isn't fixed, it can cause planes to simply fall out of the sky.

A statement and copy of the new directive obtained by Avionics International notes that the agency is issuing an emergency AD requiring a Boeing 737 MAX flight operations manual update.

An aerodynamic stall is when the wings of an aircraft can't produce enough lift and the plane starts to dive.

Utomo confirmed to CNN that there were two airspeed indicators in the cockpit.

A week after the disaster, there is still no answer as to what caused the crash.

"When we opened the black box, yes indeed the technical problem was the airspeed or the speed of the plane", head of Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee Soerjanto Tjahjono said, according to The Guardian. The device was replaced in Bali after pilots reported a problem with airspeed reading, the Indonesian transportation safety regulator said Wednesday.

"If you were driving down the interstate and the speedometer failed, would you expect to crash the auto?" said John Cox, a former airline pilot and now a safety consultant.

At one stage during the conference, relatives urged Lion Air founder Rusdi Kirana, who was in the audience, to stand up.

While search teams scouring the waters managed to bring up the flight data recorder, a separate recorder that captures cockpit conversations and background noise is still buried in the seabed where the plane plunged.

Indonesia's search and rescue agency extended the search effort on Wednesday for a second time, saying it would continue until Sunday. The aircraft's erratic behaviour during its final flight, and reports of an issue during a previous journey, had already prompted speculation that this could have been an issue. One of the pilots had trimmed the plane to push the nose down while trying to climb after aborting a landing, the report said.
