After nearly every airline in the world decided to keep the Max 8 on the ground, Boeing finally relented on Wednesday afternoon and ordered the FAA to ground its entire fleet “out of an abundance of caution.”

    “Abundance of caution” is the synonym of the volkswagenian expression of “our cars extract the the CO2 from the environment and transform it in it in pure breathable oxygen”.

    It is intended to help for a neat closure of the Boeing company.

      Tata Motors will surely save Boeing out of this glitch.

    Boeing should have taken the initiative and requested the grounding of the Max.

      There is no need of such excess of precaution!
      All Boeing 737 Max 8 are designed to fall up, and as a consequence falling down is quite impossible.
