Thanks for posting. I think Boeing made/is making a PR mistake by not being ahead of all this, suggesting grounding, rather than waiting for regulators.
It's not going to be grounded.

It is already mostly grounded around the world. The US seems to be a tiny sliver of the 7M8 market at this point. It's all about managing PR at this point.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

This is a very interesting point about USA/AA

And we don't even know if any of this had anything to do with the ET302 crash, which based on reports had smoke coming out of it while it was in the sky.

I can't see how the US will not ground it now based on international and political pressure mounting.

Grounding it would have a big impact on Southwest as they have so many Max planes along with their recent labor issues.

not sure exactly the reason why the FAA doesn't want to ground the MAX while for a fire & no loss of life they grounded the Dreamliner's and didn't even allow ferry flights - LOT Polish had then just landed in ORD after their inaugural 787 flight and couldn't fly back to WAW and the aircraft was stuck in ORD for over 3 months

Many have asked questions about how this affects our financial situation. It is quite obvious that we will not take the course related to the new aircraft that we have to park temporarily. We will send this bill to those who produce this aircraft.

Simple. Dangerous plane vs pilot error.
