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

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

Trumps announcement followed one by Canadas transportation minister grounding all the jets, saying a review of satellite-tracking data by his countrys experts found similarities between Sundays crash of an Ethiopian Airlines jet and an October Lion Air crash.

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

This is a new type of aircraft with a new black box, with new software. We cant do it, BFU spokesman Germout Freitag said.

Seems reasonable.

So why was it sent there in the first place?

ET are worried that US is biased and will lean towards pilot error?

I understand why ET might be worried, but Germany/EU are biased as well.
