    What took them so damn long??? We citizens didn’t want to fly in them anyways; even domestically. It’s out of precaution & safety should be FAA’s # 1 Priority!!!! May the lives of those lost on 03/10/19 & Lion Air Rest in Peace !!!! US had no choice; All major cities in the US have dozens of planes flying to Europe & beyond & those planes were already banned from their Airspace!!!!!!

      First Ms Libby….The grounding of aircraft is not a flick the lightswitch on type thing.I’m sure if your little man Bathouse barry had taken a year it would have been fine but since its the peoples president(libtards excluded).
      Its totally different.

    Self-inflicted economic damage. He’s just trashing a good US company that employs lots of people. China banned the plane because they have a competing model within the same market.

    I bet crazy big eyed Alexandria Cortez is happy having them planes grounded she was calling on to eventually having no more planes in the sky as well many other crazy insane socialistic ideas..

      You just make yourself look stupid with comments like that. It’s incredible that old men particularly who probably even have daughters have no sense of integrity that they cannot offer constructive dialogue without personal and often misogynistic abuse. Would you talk to your daughter like that. I thought you Conservatives valued the family but most of the abuse directed at AOC from conservatives is petty and personal.

    Is it a pilot problem, or a Boeing “safe stall” problem?
    Were the pilots fighting a “safe system” that constantly over rode their flight input commands – right into the ground.
    Should have been resolved with the Lion crash! Now there is hell to pay.
    That is the issue Boeing must resolve ASAP!

      i believe their is a issue with the AoA (Angle of attack) sensor either hardware wise or software wise where while the plane is flying in autopilot the sensor gives erroneous readings to the autopilot system. Causing the plane to dive. This is a problem thats terrifying as a pilot with little time to react and correct. Im not sure about this but the pilots on the Ethiopian flight may have not completely disconnected the autopilot. While using their controls trying to save the plane. Most problems pilots train for and have on planes are handled through a procedure book. Some of them need to be memorized because they don’t have time to go over a checklist. But mostly they are used to a problem happening thats not catastrophic. And then going through a procedure with plenty of time.

    I don’t normally have praise for this president but this is the correct decision while more information is gathered and well done for choosing this course of action.

      What choice did he really have … had agencies been in place and had pilots been listened to the disaster may not have happened… he’s no hero here

    For you always Naive Americans, “BOEING DO NOT CRASH,” only humans can make them crash.
    One of these ABC US Criminal Govt-Corp institutions want to down that 737. What you just heard
    was US Criminal Govt-Corp propaganda. Because the US Criminal Govt-Corp believe that all naive
    Americans will believe any damn thing they say. 1st of all that so called crash site don’t look like a
    true crash site.

    WOW! So sad to see that there are so many “sleepers” STILL BRAINWASHED by YEARS of cnn mind control…. that still think that Trump is a bad guy. PATRIOTS… pray for these poor souls… I know of many who have come to realize that they have been lied to…. and played for fools.

    my sincere condolences and prayers go out to all I have a question that no one is askingI am guessing that there are 330 odd planes live in service, and only 2 crash. who can do the maths please as I never went to school. all current max planes that are flying have not had this issue, why only these two planes and they were both newly received planes

      Would you drive a car that there were 330 in the world and 2 had fatalities due to a computer problem? I think not. Also so far 5 other pilots have complained officially about the nose diving in auto pilot. Depends how high up you are whether you die.

    Just shows the Liberals low view on the value of Canadian lives. Have still not grounded them even though EU, India, and other places don’t even let them fly over their airspace.

      What are you talking about? Canada grounded them this morning before your post. Keep up on what is going on.

      +Don’t Bet on It only after Trump started blabbing and tweeting. and when they did it was clear that the US was also going to ground them. weak and indecisive, trying to protect Boeing more than Canadians. They were forced to after every other country did so, and both passengers and flight crews started balking.

    This delay in grounding as the rest of the world watched is not only an embarrassment to every American, it is clearly inept upper management at Boeing and heads need to fly. And NOT because of this design flaw, which will always be a part of advanced technology, but because Boeing’s “elite” and egotistical upper management refused to place the public’s safety above their own ego’s and bottom line. It’s a real disgrace this time and I wonder if Boeing can even survive after this bombastic performance –

    AI is fighting human who is the boss in these 2 crashes.
    This incident should sound the alarm and teach us a lesson for future AI development.

    They have to ground them so they can claim to have fixed a problem that does not exist. Then the people will be happy to get on board again!

    I am now deeply saddened for those who lost their lives and their loved ones for the mistake Boeing has made. It is not cool to praise Boeing in the circumstances where more than 350 People has died.

    The FAA does not need trumps permission to ground the aircraft. Trumpy is grandstanding as if he thinks he in charge. they all grounded now since the FAA found similar actions of the two planes , causing them to crash. Hence why they all grounded now.
