The entire fleet of Boeing’s 737 Max aircraft remains grounded today after the Federal Aviation Commission joined with regulatory bodies around the world by ordering an temporary halt of flights. It’s after two crashes, in Ethiopia and Indonesia, in the last six months. Boeing is now trying to fix both the planes and its reputation.
