S.Africa's Comair monitors probes after Boeing 737 MAX 8 crash in Ethiopia

JOHANNESBURG, March 11 (Reuters) - South African airline Comair Ltd will monitor investigations into Sunday’s crash of a Boeing Co 737 MAX 8 jetliner in Ethiopia, it said on Monday.

Comair ordered eight models of the aircraft and took delivery of the first one last month.

The Ethiopian Airlines 737 MAX 8 bound for Nairobi crashed minutes after take-off, killing all 157 people on board and prompting the carrier to ground the rest of its fleet of the jets.
