The same model, flown by Lion Air, crashed off the coast of Indonesia a year ago in October, killing all 189 on board.

The latest crash, this time of an Ethiopian jetliner, killed all 157 people on board.

These similarities, the agency said, warrant further investigation into whether the two crashes were caused by the same issue. A preliminary report by KNKT in November, before the retrieval of the cockpit voice recorder, focused on maintenance and training and the response of a Boeing anti-stall system to a recently replaced sensor, but gave no reason for the crash.

Boeing could need between three and six months to fix and install new software on its 737 Max aircraft, following the move by the US and other countries to ground the planes this week. Travelers learned that their planes were banned from flying while in the middle of their trips, but all flights were allowed to continue to their intended destinations before those aircraft were officially grounded.

Boeing said it supports the grounding of its planes as a precautionary step, while reiterating its "full confidence" in the safety of the 737 Max. The French air safety authority BEA confirmed the receipt of the in the crash-damaged black boxes.

"Break break, request back to home", the captain told air traffic controllers as they scrambled to divert two other flights approaching the airport.

A spokesman for the Bureau of Enquiry and Analysis for Civil Aviation Safety (BEA) said they didn't know what condition the black boxes were.

"We saw where he died and touched the earth", said Sultan Al-Mutairi, who had come from Riyadh to mourn his brother, Saad, who perished in the crash.

Ethiopian Airlines had said it would work with Boeing, the national civil aviation authority and worldwide experts in trying to unravel what caused the brand new plane to come down just six minutes into its flight. After the Ethiopia crash, the company said it would deploy that upgrade across the fleet "in the coming weeks".

"I can't speak for the Ethiopians", Goelz said. Dozens of countries, including the United States, have made a similar move.
