ABC News published an article a few minutes ago saying CASA has suspended all MAX8 operations in Australia (in practice only affecting Fiji Airways as other MAX operators were already affected by their own countries’ regulators).

Further to Rowan’s post,

Heard on 2GB this morning, Fiji’s 737-MAX will be allowed to fly out of Sydney but with no passengers

The UK have banned the 737-MAX flying in and out of the UK forcing two Turkish Airline flights to turn around and return to their point of departure.

The EU is also suspending all operations of the 737-MAX in Europe

Pleased to hear FJ will be allowed to ferry theirs out of SYD - lousy timing for the announcement by CASA, which could have been prevented with a simple check of what two aircraft were scheduled to do.

In addition to the UK and Europe overnight, India has also banned the MAX. As most of the bans appear to include overflight, it seems like the MAX fleet will be restricted to flying within North America (although FJ might still be able to find things to do with theirs - NZ and Hawaii, for example).

Will play devil's advocate, I wonder if the White House has any input into the FAA decision.

NZ are now banning Max flights, so that option has pretty much gone.

The United States and Canada have now grounded all 737-MAX aircraft. President Trump has issued the executive order. Any aircraft currenent in flight will be allowed to go to its destination but then will be grounded.

Post Boeing itself now supports grounding of all MAX variants

Just issued:

Unhappy Dire prognosis for Boeing

Simon Gunson has published a dire prognostication: the end of Boeing!

https://www.quora.com/profile/Simon-Gunson

Basically he claims that the entire internal communications protocol of the MAX is flawed because it is inherently susceptible to voltage fluctuations which cause data corruption in vital avionics components. From that he concludes that it is not economically feasible for Boeing to rectify the problem!

Who is this Simon Gunston ? , and how is he qualified to make statements regarding the digital architecture of the 737 Max aircraft .
His disclosures are full of mays, could, should , if and might. There absolutely nothing indicative in what he says . If he’s such an expert , then Boeing should snap him up , he obviously knows all the answers . There’s also no credit given or sources for his information , and on top of all this , he’s seem privy to the Boeing financial status . There certainly no shortage of armchair avionics experts and air crash investigators out there .
