More 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.

After several countries (Singapore, China, Indonesia, South Korea, and Mongolia) and airlines (Ethiopian Airlines, Comair, Cayman Airways, Gol, Aeromexico) have opted to ground the planes, more of them decided to follow that same decision.

As of press time, Australia, Malaysia, Oman, India, France, Ireland, Germany, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, and the United Kingdom, as well as Aerolineas Argentinas and Royal Air Maroc, have also grounded the 737 MAX aircrafts.

Online sources have stated that the tragic Ethiopian Airlines have caused about half of the operating 737 MAX aircrafts in the world to be grounded.

However, there are still airlines like Air Canada, American, Southwest, and WestJet that still continue their operations with the aircraft.
