I'm going to guess you are the proud owner of one of those pink hats.

A few hundred people have been killed in a short period of time in a specific aircraft. I don't think it's unreasonable to ground the fleet until the cause can be determined. Way to inject your politics into the situation though. I'm sure if your boyfriend were one of the casualties, you'd be singing a different tune.

Do we have enough spares / non-utilized aircraft to cover the 20ish max aircraft that are grounded ?

Lol probably not.

A lot of the 737 Max stuff is MIA-Caribbean. Lots of stuff cancelled right now. Going to be a helluva spring break for people.

The US is pretty late to the game when it comes to grounding the MAX. What if a US MAX went down and Trump/NTSB/FAA had done nothing prior? I’m sure you’d be on here asking why the US DIDN’T ground the aircraft.
I think US crews would have pulled the stab trim electric cutoff switches.
