Boeing’s 737 Max is grounded

Boeing’s 737 Max is grounded

On Behalf of | Mar 14, 2019 | Uncategorized |

In many circumstances, traveling is fun and exciting. Catching a flight may provide you the opportunity to host a destination wedding, visit family members or go on a vacation of a lifetime.

However, your excitement to board an airplane might dampen when safety becomes a concern. Such has been the case in relation to Boeing’s 737 Max.

Emergency order issued

Prior to March 13, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) decided to keep these planes in the air, despite the recent crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia which claimed 346 lives. However, a recent emergency order grounded the 737 Max.

Alleged issues with the planes involved in both crashes potentially included problems related to the flight control system. There may also be some question about the accuracy of the flight instruments.

Various countries grounded the aircraft

With roughly 5,000 planes on order, the 737 Max is Boeing’s top-selling jet in history. However, considering the recent crashes involving the aircraft, at least 30 of the 59 air operators with the new 737 have grounded the jet.

Prior to grounding the aircraft in the United States, the plane was grounded in:

  • China
  • Indonesia
  • Australia
  • Singapore
  • Canada
  • United Arab Emirates (UAE)
  • The European Union

Grounding the planes will likely affect plans for countless people with upcoming flights.

Your life is more important than your schedule

You could potentially experience some inconvenience as airlines look for alternative planes to meet demand. However, if you consider the potential safety concerns involved with the decision to ground the new 737, you will probably agree your safety is worth a possible flight delay.
