REPORT: Boeing might face costs for grounded 737 MAX 8 planes, USA last nation flying the jets
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by USATODAY.COM:
The U.S. was the sole nation flying Boeing 737 Max 8 planes on Wednesday as the aircraft-manufacturing giant and the Federal Aviation Administration steadfastly defended the safety of the hot-selling jetliners.
Canada joined the vast majority of the world Wednesday in closing its airspace to the planes, two of which have crashed in the last five months, killing more than 300 people.
The groundings could lead to chaos in the world of air traffic – the fleet already includes 74 flown by domestic carriers among almost 400 worldwide. And airlines have ordered 4,661 more of the planes, the newest version of the 737 and best-selling airliner ever.
The article goes on to state the following:
At least one airline wants compensation from Boeing for the cost of parking the jets. Norwegian Air Shuttles spokeswoman Tonje Naess said the carrier, which flies 18 of the planes, should not face “any financial burden for a brand new aircraft that will not to be used.” It was not immediately clear what those costs might be or what Boeing might be pressed to pay.
