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

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.

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.

Hearing reports that AC isn't covering hotels or anything else for those stranded by cancelled 737 Max flights. Are any airlines, or is this all outside of what they have to cover?

Stock shrugs
The only risk still out there is that this temporary ban will turn into a permanent ban, which is a very small risk, which is probably why the stock is unchanged on the news today.
