The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) made the decision to ground all Boeing 737 Max 8 and Max 9 aircraft, a decision that has impacted many flyers. The decision comes as the FAA investigates two crashes related to their aircraft.
At Orlando International Airport (MCO), discussions are already taking place with airlines such as Air Canada, American, GOL, Southwest, WestJet, and United that were scheduled to depart from MCO in Boeing 737 Max 8 and Max 9 aircraft throughout the month. MCO says that they are working with the airlines to park their planes there and make any other arrangements as needed.
While passengers can expect some delays and cancellations, not all will be due to the grounding of the Boeing 737 Max 8 and Max 9 planes. Winter weather may be causing some delays and cancellations as well. Passengers are advised to reach out to their airlines for more information about their specific flights.
