What Is Really Going On In Aviation These Days?

1. Several 777 engine shutdowns and one downed flight at LHR due to failing engine response. BA and AF seem to be the airlines having problems, but I swear I heard there were other shutdowns at other airlines.

2. Aloha Disappears

3. Skybus Goes Under

4. Grounding of UA 777's

5. Grounding of AA MD-80's

6. The BA T5 Fiasco

Seems aviation has had a really bad 30 days. But I'm really wondering what would prompt the FAA to ground these fleet types and cause such an uproar unparalleled since 9/11 in the US. 500 AA flights cancelled today, and 200? UA flights for the 777.

The last grounding I can think of was the one after the Alaska Airlines crash on MD-80's and before that, the DC-10 fiasco.

Did I miss anything?
