Boeing has issued a new warning to all pilots flying its 737 MAX aircraft, the model of the recently crashed Lion Air flight JT610 from Jakarta, Indonesia.

Boeing said in its statement that it had issued an operations manual bulletin (OMB) to 737 Max operators that advised flight crews to turn to existing procedures "where there is erroneous input from an AOA sensor".

The US Federal Aviation Administration issued an emergency airworthiness directive on Wednesday to address how to handle erroneous data from a sensor on the new Boeing 737 MAX jet in the wake of last week's Indonesian jetliner crash.

Neither carrier said they had received any reports from pilots of issues with the sensor, which calculates the "angle of attack", a measurement of the angle of the plane's wing and airflow needed to maintain lift.

It was not immediately clear whether Boeing was planning to update the guidelines, though comments from Indonesian officials indicate they expect so.

"The point is that after the AOA [sensor] is replaced the problem is not solved, but the problem might even increase".

According to Pramintohadi, the Boeing 737-900 ER aircraft was scheduled to depart for Soekarno-Hatta International Airport near Jakarta at 6:20 p.m.

"There were four flights in all that suffered a problem with the airspeed indicator", NTSC head Soerjanto Tjahjono told reporters.

Der Spiegel calls the settlements "weak" and claims Uefa "wasn't even entirely aware of the degree to which it had been deceived". That included selling players' image rights to an external company, therefore writing off that cost from their accounts.

On that October 28 flight, the pilot's and co-pilot's sensors disagreed by about 20 degrees.

Boeing's bulletin related only to the 737 MAX, the latest version of the world's most-sold family of aircraft, which has been in service for just over a year. They chose to fly on to Jakarta at a lower-than-normal altitude.

Boeing said the "angle of attack" sensor, which identifies if a plane is about to stall, was faulty on the doomed flight.

It did not give more details and did not speculate on how the indicator problem may have played a role in the crash, as it continues to mine the flight recorder - seen as key to answering why a almost brand new plane fell out of the sky.

Bloomberg says the plane's velocity was uncharacteristically high, possibly touching speeds of 970 kilometres an hour as it hit the water.

A search for the cockpit voice recorder, the second so-called black box, remains underway.

The accident came 10 days after Lion Air grabbed headlines when one of its jets plunged into the Java Sea, tragically killing all 189 people on board.

The warning comes as Indonesia's transport ministry has scheduled a briefing to share the latest information on the Lion Air tragedy.
