Increasing Bans on Boeing 737 MAX 8 Flights After Ethiopian Airlines Disaster

HeadlineMar 12, 2019

A growing number of countries and airlines have grounded Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircrafts following Sunday’s Ethiopian Airlines crash, which killed all 157 people on board and came just five months after an Indonesian Lion Air flight of the same model killed 189 people. Twenty-five airlines have taken the planes out of service since the disaster. Southwest Airlines and American Airlines said Monday they would continue to operate flights on the Boeing 737 MAX 8. The union representing American Airlines told flight attendants Monday they do not have to work on those flights if they have safety concerns.
