The U.S. is grounding the Boeing 737 MAX airliner fleet for the time being.
President Trump yesterday said an emergency order was going into effect immediately to the FAA to ground the planes and will last indefinitely. He cited two recent international crashes involving the aircraft model.
The president’s announcement came on the heels of several other countries doing the same thing, including Canada, which grounded flights of the 737 MAX 8 and 9 planes yesterday afternoon.
Boeing is freezing delivery of the jets. Industry sources have told media outlets that Boeing will continue production of the 737 MAX but deliveries are being halted.
Meanwhile, the flight boards at Palm Beach International show a couple of flights canceled into and out of the airport, on Air Canada and American Airlines.
