Boeing 737 Max grounded: Donald Trump says aircrafts are too complicated

Norwegian Air Shuttle to demand Boeing pay for grounding of planes

Jamaica's Civil Aviation Authority said it had made a decision to temporarily restrict the operations of Boeing 737 MAX 8 and 9 aircraft within or into Jamaica's airspace after the two recent deadly accidents involving the plane series.

The airline stressed that it wasn't motivated by safety concerns, but "evolving commercial reasons", including airspace restrictions on the Max 8 imposed by some destination countries.

He said airlines should allow passengers to rebook on alternate planes or cancel their tickets without penalty if they have apprehensions about flying on the Max 8.

The Boeing 737 Max 8 was involved in a fatal Ethiopian Airlines crash this past weekend, which killed all 157 people on board. Last October, Boeing 737 MAX of Indonesia's Lion Air crashed killing 189 people.

However, Air Canada says that its 737 MAX flights carry between 9,000 and 12,000 passengers a day, so customers can expect delays in re-booking and reaching customer service.

TUKO.co.ke had earlier reported a number of other nations across world had also grounded Boeing 737 Max 8 jets to ensure passenger safety.

Nationally, the Max 8 accounts for 5 percent of Southwest's fleet of Boeing 737s.

On the other hand, the opposition Labour party, with its 247 MPs, is likely to reject May's proposal. The latest pact stressed the "legal force" and "binding character" of the withdrawal agreement.

However, the US Federal Aviation Administration said a review had showed "no systemic performance issues" and that there was no basis for grounding the aircraft.

These governments and airlines have suspended the use of the jets or banned them from entering their airspace. "They didn't fly them into Jacksonville", Booth said.

Several airlines have grounded the MAX 8s in their fleets, but many others are continuing to fly the plane pending an investigation into the crash and possible guidance from Boeing itself. Both airlines said they would immediately comply with the FAA order.

Air Canada, along with Southwest and American Airlines, have been the major outliers in resisting a grounding of the planes.

"That mistake is driven by market forces trying to make the plane more competitive against Airbus, at a lower price, at least as far as training", said Charles Herrmann, the principle attorney with the firm leading the lawsuit.

We sincerely thank all stakeholders for the continued confidence placed in the National Airline of Trinidad and Tobago. "They are working very, very hard right now and hopefully they'll quickly come up with an answer".
