  • Norwegian Air Shuttle to demand Boeing pay for grounding of planes

The order to ground the planes comes as other nations grounded the aircraft type, and under increasing pressure for the U.S.to follow suit.

PGV's Executive Director Bill Hopper says American Airlines has 24 Max Eights and the airline is working with passengers who may be affected while flights are grounded.

While aviation experts warn against drawing conclusions until more information emerges from the crash investigation, numerous jurisdictions - including China, Germany, the United Kingdom and the European Union - have grounded the Max 8 or banned it from their airspace.

Boeing said it had recommended to the FAA the temporary suspension of operations of its entire global fleet of 737 Max aircraft, after consulting with the FAA, US National Transportation Safety Board, and aviation authorities and customers around the world.

Acting FAA administrator Daniel Elwell said he did not know how long the USA grounding of the aircraft would last.

Shortly afterwards Mr Trump took the decision to halt flights on the Boeing model.

The FAA did not say when the ban could be lifted, but suggested it probably could last at least until investigators review the flight data recorder and cockpit voice reporter from Sunday's Boeing 737 Max 8 crash in Ethiopia.

The low-priced carrier - Southeast Asia's biggest airline by fleet size and a major Boeing customer - said the jets had been on order for delivery this year, but the company is now re-evaluating the situation.

Although, as Canada's Garneau and others have said, it is too early to know the cause of the Ethiopian Airlines crash, some flyers appear to be nervous about getting onboard a Max.

Most are piloted by Southwest. We remain confident in the safety and airworthiness of the MAX 8.

Lion Air now operates 10 Max 8 jets, part of a then-record $22 billion order from Boeing made in 2011.

On Wednesday, President Trump announced there would be an "emergency order to ground all 737 Max 8 and the 737 Max 9, and planes associated with that line".

Many industry watchers had expected the airline to hand the black box over to the plane manufacturer, Boeing.

Tim Ghriskey, chief investment strategist at Inverness Counsel in NY, said the grounding gives Boeing time to address any problems and not face another potential disaster.

Both the Ethiopian Airlines crash and a Lion Air crash in Indonesia occurred last October just minutes after takeoff.

"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.

The Dallas Morning News found five complaints in a federal database where pilots can register complaints about aircraft.

"Even so, Cox thinks Boeing will recover because the planes typically fly for 30 to 40 years and any needed fix will be made quickly, he said".

Even so, grounding the aircraft won't cripple air travel in Orlando or across the USA, said aviation journalist Seth Kaplan.

"There can't be any Max 8 or Max 9 aircraft flying into, out of or across Canada", he said, confirming that it affects domestic carriers like Air Canada, WestJet and Sunwing, as well as worldwide airlines.

However, according to filings with the US Aviation Safety Reporting System, which pilots use to disclose information anonymously, it appeared to force the nose down.
