The brand new Lion AirBoeing737 MAX 8 was carrying 189 passengers and crew among which was the prospective bridegroom Rio Nanda Pratama, who died in the crash.
The Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System in limited instances will lower the nose of the 737 Max if the airplane is close to an aerodynamic stall even if pilots are manually operating controls.
"We don't have that in the manual of the Boeing 737 MAX 8".
Boeing said Monday that it's working closely with investigators and taking every measure "to fully understand all aspects of this incident".
In this case, an AOA malfunction could cause the plane's computers to detect a stall incorrectly and put the plane into a dive when it should climb instead.

However, according to a Boeing spokesperson, the company is doing everything it can to ensure pilots are well prepared to fly the planes.
The Allied Pilots Association says while there are no immediate safety concerns about the Boeing 737 MAX "the fact that this hasn't been told to pilots before calls into question what other info should we know about this aircraft". "They said: 'We should do it together, Rio would have to be here'".
The Wall Street Journal reports that Boeing didn't provide airlines with information about an automated safety-control feature, meant to prevent the plane's nose from raising too high and stalling. "Safety remains our top priority and is a core value for everyone at Boeing", the company said. The agency said it would take further action if results of the investigation into the Lion Air crash warrant it. After that Intan couldn't hold them in any more.
American Airlines, which also operates the MAX8, also provided its pilots with new documentation on MCAS hurriedly provided by Boeing after the Lion Air crash.
A union bulletin to pilots at American Airlines Group Inc. said the company hadn't provided details about the system with its documentation about the plane.
Body parts are still being recovered and searchers are continuing to hunt for the cockpit voice recorder.
Last week, Boeing released a statement acknowledging that Indonesian officials had told it about repeated errant data readings experienced by the plane.
