Lawmakers Call on FAA to Ground US Boeing 737 MAX 8 Planes

Some U.S. lawmakers are asking the Federal Aviation Administration to ground all Boeing 737 MAX 8 airplanes in the U.S. following the recent deadly Ethiopia Airlines crash.

Sens.  Dianne Feinstein ,  Elizabeth Warren ,  Mitt Romney  and  Richard Blumenthal  called on the FAA to stop all flights until an investigation into the crash is complete.

Multiple countries  have banned the use of the planes in the wake of the crash — including Singapore, Australia, the U.K. and Mexico.

But the U.S. doesn't currently have plans to follow suit.

And  in a statement Tuesday , the president of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA implored the FAA to temporarily ground the U.S.'s 737 MAX fleet "out of an abundance of caution." Southwest Airlines and American Airlines  told Newsy  Monday they're keeping their Boeing 737 MAX 8 jets in the air for now.

And the FAA said it  will order Boeing  to make some "design changes" to the Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircrafts, including anti-stalling software and maneuvering system updates.

But it decided against ordering U.S. carriers to ground the jets entirely.

Ethiopia Airlines Flight 302 crashed en route to Nairobi, Kenya, on Sunday,  killing all 157 people on board .

It the second fatal accident involving that Boeing model in less than five months.
