The United States is joining the growing list of countries to ground the 737 max jets produced by boeing. Those jets make up as little as 5 percent of the fleets of United, American and Southwest, but if you’re flying those airlines, you could see a cancellation.
This is having a big impact for travelers.
According to Flight Aware about 3,000 flights were cencelled Wednesday. It’s not just the 737 max jets that are affected, airlines are shuffling flights to solve their biggest problems.
Wednesday the U.S. joined Europe, Canada, India and China by grounding all Boeing 737 max 8 and max 9 planes.
“They’re pulling these planes, out, putting them in the hangar until further investigation is done and swapping them out with different planes,” Smith said.
