Air Canada says their 737 Max jets have all safety features Boeing sells as extras

Air Canada says it has all additional safety systems installed on their Boeing 737 Max jets, after media reports suggested that Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines jets that recently crashed didn’t have the upgraded safety features.

The New York Times reported on Thursday that both the Lion Air 737 Max jet that crashed in October, and the Ethiopian Airlines jet that crashed earlier this month, did not have a pair of additional safety features installed on them.

Investigators are still parsing what exactly happened on board both jets, but it appears as though anti-stall software and air speed sensors were at least one factor, and may have combined to cause both planes to malfunction in a way that pilots couldn’t adjust to.

Air Canada grounds Boeing Max 8s until at least July 1

Air Canada has grounded its Boeing 737 Max 8 jets until at least July 1.

The airline says the move is intended to provide customers with certainty as they book flights and travel in the coming months.

Some routes are being suspended entirely, including some flights out of St. John’s, Halifax, Calgary and Vancouver, as the airline substitutes other aircraft on routes that normally use Max 8s.

The changes come on the heels of Transport Canada’s decision to close Canadian airspace to the aircraft after a Max 8 jet operated by Ethiopian Airlines crashed on March 10, killing all 157 people on board, including 18 Canadians. Previously, a Max 8 plane crashed off Indonesia in October, killing 189 people.

Air Canada announced Tuesday it has adjusted its schedule through to April 30 and is working on updating its May schedules to accommodate affected customers.

Apple iPhone 11 ‘Copying’ Huawei Mate 20 Pro Camera Setup?

The iPhone 11 is said to have a triple-lens camera, according to previous rumors. But new speculations claimed that Apple will use a triple-lens camera similar to the Huawei Mate 20 camera. Here’s what we know about this.

According to Macotakara, Chinese suppliers said that the Apple iPhone 11 has a triple-lens rear camera collected in a square space, similar to that of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. The triple-lens technology isn’t just for show as it would actually improve the quality of pictures taken by the device.

The suppliers also confirmed that Apple is currently adding a large hole in the rear of the device which could be for the triple-lens camera. Speculations also noted that the Apple iPhone 11 triple-lens camera could be set up symmetrically or asymmetrically inside the square.

However, take this information with a grain of salt as the suppliers weren’t named.
