Countries across the world have grounded Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 jets.

Montreal-based Air Canada on Friday morning withdrew its outlook issued in February for the first quarter and full year of 2019 "in light of the current uncertainty" over the planes that carry as many as 12,000 of its customers a day.

Preparations are underway to begin DNA tests to identify remains of the 157 people killed in the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines last week, authorities announced at a Saturday news conference.

Both accidents involved new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircrafts.

France's aviation safety agency BEA received the cockpit voice and data recorders on Thursday for decoding, while investigators on the scene near Addis Ababa continue to sift through the plane's wreckage.

The U.S. planemaker's suspension of deliveries came as Air Canada was renewing its narrowbody fleet, by using the more fuel-efficient MAX aircraft to replace existing Airbus A320 narrowbodies.

The Nairobi-bound Boeing 737 MAX 8 of the Ethiopian Airlines crashed early on Sunday.

The recorders, also known as black boxes, were sent to France because the BEA has extensive expertise in analyzing such devices. Already, some investigative information has leaked. In the Lion Air crash, investigators are examining the behaviour of a new anti-stall system installed on the 737 MAX that led to the plane gaining and losing altitude as the pilots fought for control against the automated system.

There are 74 registered in the United States and 387 in use worldwide with 59 carriers, according to the FAA. Both planes crashed within minutes of take off after pilots reported problems.

A preliminary report into the Lion Air disaster was published a month after the crash.

Air Canada and United Airlines on Friday became the first major carriers in North America to warn of negative financial implications to business as a outcome of the grounding of the Boeing planes.

Speaking in a "panicky voice", the doomed aircraft's captain requested permission to return to the airport nearly immediately after takeoff as the plane "accelerated to abnormal speed", the newspaper reported Thursday, citing a person who had reviewed the air traffic communications. A separate division also provides interior systems for the Boeing 737 Max, including lavatory and oxygen systems.
