On the 13th, Russia's Siberian Airlines (S7) announced that it will suspend its own aircraft that are in line with the Ethiopian Airlines crash model until the cause of the crash. The company emphasizes that experts are in constant contact with Boeing and are concerned about the progress of the investigation. However, the company also stressed that the aircraft flight does not affect the company's operation, because the company has only two aircraft of this type.
