Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounding, General Discussion Thread, Q3 2020

Airbus did not ground the A330 after AF447, even though they had the automated maintenance system (ACARS) reports of pitot tube issues, and they already knew there was an icing problem with the pitot tubes installed on that and other A330's.
