EU Suspends 737 MAX Flights; U.S. Transportation Chief Says Craft Is Safe


The EU is joining governments around the world to keep the Boeing 737 MAX on the ground after Sunday's Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed all 157 people on board. It was the second deadly crash of a Boeing 737 MAX 8 in less than five months. Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao is resisting calls to order the planes grounded. Chao flew one Tuesday from Austin, Texas to Washington, DC. Chao said her department will take action if it's determined they are not safe to fly. There are reports that some U.S. pilots have been complaining about the Boeing 737 MAX airplanes for months. The Dallas Morning News reports that one captain called the flight manual "inadequate and almost criminally insufficient." The Morning News said it found five complaints about the model in the federal database. Only the United States and Canada are still allowing the model to fly in large numbers.
