Boeing Stock Falls as Trump Grounds 737 MAX

4 easy ways to tell if you're flying via Boeing 737 MAX 8

The order covers not just the Boeing 737-8 models flown by American Airlines and Southwest Airlines - the type that has been involved in two accidents in five months - but also Boeing 737-9s flown by United Airlines.

But the software only operates when a plane is being flown manually with its flaps retracted, according to a November 10 memo provided to Southwest Airlines pilots following the Lion Air crash.

Most airlines have spare planes positioned throughout the country to deal with mechanical and weather delays, he said.

Even so, grounding the aircraft won't cripple air travel in Orlando or across the USA, said aviation journalist Seth Kaplan.

"My experts have looked at this and compared it to the [flight path of] Lion Air in October and there are similarities that exceed a certain threshold in our minds with respect to the possible cause of what happened in Ethiopia", Mr. Garneau said, adding the information is not conclusive and needs to be confirmed by the flight recorder data.

Boeing, which makes the Max8, issued a statement saying it supports the action to temporarily ground the plane.

Even after the FAA's announcement, however, two of Latin America's largest airlines - Grupo Aeromexico and Brazil's Gol Linhas Aereas Inteligentes - said they would also suspend 737 Max flights.

In the wake of Sunday's fatal Boeing 737 MAX airplane crash in Ethiopia, President Donald Trump took computer scientists to task today for making airplanes "too complex to fly". The 737 Max, which debuted in May 2017, is poised to generate about $30 billion in annual revenue as factory output rises to a 57-jet monthly pace this year, according to Bloomberg Intelligence.

Concern about the Max's safety seemed to be abating but returned on Sunday following the horror Ethiopian Airlines crash. John Samuelsen, global president of the Transport Workers Union of America, which represent aviation workers and flight attendants, said the grounding of the fleet was right "both for air travelers and aviation workers".

Foreign investigators examine wreckage at the scene where the Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 crashed shortly after takeoff.

He said the multi-million dollar deal signed between Air Peace and the American aircraft manufacturer, The Boeing Company, on September 13, 2018 for the delivery of 10 brand new B737 MAX 800 aircraft, was still on.

Delta said that it does not operate any Boeing 737 MAX 8 or 9 aircraft.

The FAA missive indicated that Boeing is preparing fixes for anti-stall software that baffled pilots by pitching the Lion Air plane's nose down dozens of times before it crashed in the Java Sea off the coast of Indonesia.

She then flew in one of the planes Tuesday, returning from a conference in Texas.

Trump said the decision to ground the aircraft "didn't have to be made, but we thought it was the right decision".

The new variant of the world's most-sold modern passenger aircraft was viewed as the likely workhorse for airlines for decades. "We'll continue to engage with all of them to ensure they have the information they need to have confidence in operating their fleets or returning them to service", the company reportedly said.
