Grounding of Boeing 737 Max 8 has air passengers on edge

Earlier on Wednesday, Panama's Copa Holdings said it would voluntarily suspend operations of its six Boeing 737 MAX 9 aircraft, following a decision by the us air regulator to ground those jets.

Boeing in a statement said the company "continues to have full confidence of the safety of the 737 MAX".

"All of those planes are grounded, effective immediately", Trump said during a scheduled briefing on border security.

The incident occurred just after the October crash in Indonesia, which killed 189 people aboard a Boeing 737 Max 8 operated by Lion Air.

Southwest Airlines still has 34 Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft in their fleet of more than 750 Boeing 737s, some of which fly out of Pittsburgh.

Hong Kong flag carrier Cathay Pacific does not have any 737 MAX aircraft in its fleet.

US Federal Aviation Administration acting chief Daniel Elwell said the black box flight data recorders had been damaged.

Many airlines around the world have grounded the Boeing jetliner and many countries, including the entire European Union have barred the plane from their airspace, leaving the United States as one of the few areas where the plane can fly.

The woman was admitted to the hospital with her arm in "pretty bad shape", according to medical responders. Zoo officials later released a statement saying the woman was taking a selfie when the attack occurred.

These governments and airlines have suspended the use of the jets or banned them from entering their airspace.

"This safety notice restricts commercial passenger flights from any operator of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 or MAX 9 variant aircraft, whether domestic or foreign, from arriving, departing or overflying Canadian air space".

Three flights were canceled at Tampa International Airport because of President Donald Trump's order to ground all Boeing 737 Max 8 and Max 9 aircraft in the wake of a crash of an Ethiopian Airliner that killed 157 people.

Sarah Kolell is a frequent flyer and believes any delays passengers experience are worth the peace of mind knowing they are safe.

The FAA says the decision stems from new evidence collected at the site and analyzed, as well as newly refined satellite date.

Air Canada, along with Southwest and American Airlines, have been the major outliers in resisting a grounding of the planes. "Safety is a core value at Boeing for as long as we have been building airplanes; and it always will be", the statement continued.

"Airlines are definitely going to work as quickly and as fast as they can to get different aircraft to handle the existing schedules", Carney said.
