Several more airlines have grounded their Boeing 737 Max 8 jets following a deadly Ethiopian Airlines crash.

The flight crashed minutes after takeoff killing all 157 people on board.

It was the second disaster in five months involving a Boeing 737 Max 8.

Aviation regulators in China and Indonesia have suspended flights using that model. Ethiopian Airlines, Cayman Airways and Comair, have also grounded their 737 Max 8 aircraft.

Boeing shares fell 13% in early trading on Wall Street, but then recovered some of those losses.

Meanwhile, Fiji Airways says it has full confidence in the airworthiness of its Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes.

Fiji Airways says they followed a comprehensive induction process for their new Boeing 737 MAX 8.
