After three months, of plunging of Lion Air flight, the wife of the victim pilot of the crashed aircraft, Garima Sethi mate with the senior officials at the Indonesian carrier in January pleaded to them for grounding the Boeing 737 Max 8 again. It was not the first time Sethi had promised with Lion Air and Indonesian authorities to proscribe the model. The aircraft crash nearby Jakarta on 29th October snatched 189 lives and triggered global investigations into crucial problematic issues with an anti-stalling system on the popular Boeing aircraft.
But Sethi told Lion Air officials at the time they required more information to follow such a move. Additionally, the officials told Sethi that Boeing had encouraged them that the aircraft was safe.
At present, she believes the second crash of a Boeing Max jet, in this month in Ethiopia, could have been blocked if the urges by the victim’s families were provided more weight by Lion Air and others.
