The FAA, Federal Aviation Administration, is expecting that the grounded Boeing 737 MAX aircrafts will still be grounded for months.

Newly acquired information gives them more leads that there is a correlation between the crash in Indonesia, October 2018, and the crash in Ethiopia last Sunday.

The new information comes from Aireon, a company which registers data about altitude, speed and position, with the help of satellites.

According to Daniel Elwell, FAA administrator, the data gathered shows more similarities between the two crashes. He said that a new software upgrade could still takes months.
