Brazil, Mexico Ground Boeing 737 MAX Planes After Fatal Crash

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.

"Hopefully they will come up with an answer but until they do the planes are grounded", Trump said of Boeing. The agency's order came after new information from the Ethiopian Airlines wreckage showed similarities with the October crash.

Investigators are looking into what caused two crashes with the Boeing 737 MAX 8 plane in five months, one in Indonesia killing 189 people and another in Ethiopia killing 157 souls onboard on Sunday.

Boeing's global problems continued to mount as more countries and airlines joined the long list of those choosing to ground the company's 737 Max 8 aircraft.

Air Canada says it has 24 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in its total fleet of 400 aircraft.

The move to ground the aircraft follows bans in more than 40 countries, including Canada and the entire European Union, in the days since an Ethiopian Airlines plane crashed after taking off for Nairobi and killed all the people aboard.

"This is a very fluid situation and we are working to minimize the number of guests impacted", WestJet said. "We didn't have to make this decision today", Trump said.

He has 30.5 sacks in 67 games since joining the Chiefs as the No. 23 overall pick in the 2014 National Football League draft. While Ford can play both, he excels as a pass-rushing outside linebacker which made the Chiefs explore a deal.

"If there is a suspicion. that there's not only something inherently wrong with 737 Max 8 aircraft, but there are no procedures in place to cure the problem, then yes, they should either ground the plane, or there are several levels of things they could do", Curtis said. Those include United Airlines, Southwest Airlines and American Airlines.

The company also noted that it "continues to have full confidence in the safety of the 737 MAX".

"We are not going to analyze (the boxes)", he added.

These governments and airlines have suspended the use of the jets or banned them from entering their airspace.

Yesterday the FAA said 737 Max airliners would not be allowed to fly until new software had been "tested, approved and installed", a process likely to last until May, according to U.S. politicians briefed on the situation.

At Orlando International Airport, a Southwest Airlines flight arriving in Orlando from Nashville was canceled Thursday, as well as the same plane subsequently leaving for Denver.

We talked to passengers headed to Ireland, Spain, and Toronto.
