Xiamen Airlines is modifying its B737 MAX jets for return to service. However, there is no timetable yet, as the CAAC has the final say.

Yet another 737 MAX problem? Boeing has asked 16 of its customers to address a potential production issue related to an electrical power system in certain B737 MAX jets prior to further operations.

At Southwest Airlines, 30 of the airline’s 58 MAX jets are affected. Ouch! The measure also affects 16 United Airlines aircraft and 17 American Airlines planes.

There will be hundreds of other "problems" with the 737MAX. Just like for any other plane.
There is nothing abnormal in publishing AD's for planes in service. The only abnormal thing is the "surprise" and wow effect that it creates because it is... the MAX.

Welcome to Aviation24.be, Lux_avi.

It's not every day that an aircraft model is grounded. Admittedly, not all MAX's are affected (only some more recent ones), but the model seems prone to attract problems. The fact that only recently built aircraft are affected tells a lot about the bad evolution of Boeing in the last few years.

You think?

Then look at how many AD's are already in force for other recently built models, then we'll talk again.

The Belgian-registered 737 MAX aircraft operated by TUIfly are not affected by the new grounding.

Turkish Airlines cancelled 10 B737 MAX orders and converted 40 MAX jet orders to options; Chinese lessor CDB Financial scrapped 16 MAX orders, and lessor CALC of Hong Kong cancelled 26 MAX orders, and 19 MAX orders were cancelled by unidentified customers.

GOL will have decreased its fleet by 17 B737 leased aircraft since the beginning of the pandemic and reduced its 2020-22 B737 MAX deliveries by 34 aircraft. The carrier ended March with a total fleet of 127 B737s. In April 2021, GOL is adapting its fleet and will operate 50 aircraft in its network.

Turkish Airlines said the delivery dates of 13 B737 MAX aircraft, which have not yet been delivered, were rescheduled. Also, the carrier has until the end of 2021 to exercise its options to convert 40 MAX into firm orders, after cancelling 10 MAX.
