Two almost identical incidents within short time. Without jumping to conclusions all MAXes should be grounded as a precautionary measure. With China already having their 60 grounded its only circa 240 planes globally. Not a big disruption in the interest of safety.

The article states that they would keep the last A380 for much longer. Therefore the aircraft arriving in 2022 would probably be still in service by late 2030s. Therefore it will be replaced with aircraft that don't exist yet.
