Media here in Australia are doing "a good job" letting people know that Virgin Australia has orders for the Max8 and Max10.
There's no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you'll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

Source..?  American IS grounding 14 or so -800s (NON Max) aircraft due to overhead bin redesign issues.  As for their -8MAXs American has stated (along with SWA) that they are going to operate as normal until the investigation or Boeing/FAA say otherwise.

Exactly the reason why sources are needed when posting something like this.

And thanks to Toohigh for doing it regarding the Royal Air Maroc.

MIAT Mongolian Airlines have also grounded their sole MAX 8. Indonesia have done the same, so Lion Air and Gauda have had to put them on ground, and in South Korea where Eastar Jet have 2 of the type, the crews have petitioned the management to ground the planes until the cause of the Lion Air and Ethiopian crashes have been found:

Saw an interview with an airline pilot earlier who says he's pretty sure this is down to MCAS.

Says its a stupid addition that causes more issues than it solves. When shit starts going down and if the pilots panic, its not obvious how to counteract the MCAS.

He predicts it will be ditched if Boeing want to save the MAX.

Wow just heard about an hour ago. So sad RIP. It’s scary to
Know that 2 similar crashes at roughly same stage of flight ..Lion and Ethiopian , that’s what’s scary. Hopefully investigators get a confirmed answer on both soon. Samoa Airways just replaced  I-NEOS with a MAX9 over a month ago too.
