Boeing 737 MAX 8: US says ‘no basis’ to suspend troubled jet, but 45 countries disagree


US aviation regulators said there was “no basis” to suspend flights of Boeing’s 737 MAX jet after two fatal crashes that prompted at least 45 countries to either ground the troubled aircraft or bar it from their airspace.

“Thus far, our review shows no systemic performance issues and provides no basis to order grounding the aircraft. Nor have other civil aviation authorities provided data to us that would warrant action,” the Federal Aviation Administration’s acting administrator Daniel Elwell, said.
