To me it seems pretty simple although I don't think I'm smarter then the authorities in about 40 countries.
The plane was considered airworthy before it was put into service, then there was an accident and as a result the FAA put in guidelines for updated software with a timeframe for Boeing to implement it.

Which additional evidence has been added to the situation as reason to ground the planes? Other then people's emotions going loose and being nervous, there hasn't been a single solid indication that this latest accident is related to the airworthiness of the aircraft.
Any reasoning and explanation as to why exactly this plane was grounded in the US?
Maybe I just don't get it.

Europe wants Boeing to fail. Airbus is a very important part of their industry. Thatís why.
Airbus is a strong competitor to BA,I think it was China who first announced this, then the UK followed by Europe and now the US, but in this case it is a good decision to ground the 737 Max till they have more info.

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

Seems like ferry flights are allowed now

from twitter - UA1273 seems like the first flight to be affected by the US grounding, flight was taxing

AC7071 seems to be taking a somewhat indirect route to stay over land. Not sure what that would help if the issue is with the sensor.

if it crashes they should at-least have evidence and not have to go fish in the ocean

Seems extreme, unless this evidence is worse than expected

Trumpís announcement followed one by Canadaís transportation minister grounding all the jets, saying a review of satellite-tracking data by his countryís experts found similarities between Sundayís crash of an Ethio≠pian Airlines jet and an October Lion Air crash.

Seems like they found some new evidence around making the move.
