Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q3 2019

Why are all 737 Max models grounded and not just the Max 8. Only one 737-7 has been built yet because neither of the airlines that have ordered them actually wanted delivery this year anyway. It's currently being used for tests. We assume it will require the same modifications as the -8 if it enter...
