Several countries and airlines have decided to temporarily suspend flights and ground their Boeing 737 Max 8 planes following the tragic crash in Ethiopia that killed 157 people.

The decision came after two plane crashes in the past four months involving a Boeing 737 Max 8 plane.

Aside from the Ethiopian crash, the other one took place in October when a Lion Air plane crashed into the sea killing all 189 passengers.

There are about 350 Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes currently in service around the world.

Some countries decided to continue their operations with the aircraft, while there are also some countries and airlines that have opted to ground the planes.
