After a fatal crash with a Boeing 737 Max 8 plane, Ethiopian Airlines' CEO is standing by the American company. Business Insider reports the CEO of the airline, Tewolde GebreMariam, published a statement Monday that said that the carrier's pilots had the proper training necessary for the aircraft and that it was working with investigators to determine what caused the crash on March 10. He said, "Let me be clear: Ethiopian Airlines believes in Boeing. Despite the tragedy, Boeing and Ethiopian Airlines will continue to be linked well into the future." He add, "Contrary to some media reports, our pilots who fly the new model were trained on all appropriate simulators."

Investigators have been focusing on a software feature of the planes, known as MCAS, that points a plane's nose downward if it detects too steep of an incline.
