More Boeing 737 Max woes: Airlines grounding some planes again due to electrical issue

Just months after the Boeing 737 Max was ungrounded following two fatal crashes, major airlines are taking some of the planes out of service again due to a potential electrical issue.

Boeing called it a “production issue” and told 16 airlines, including Southwest, American and United, to temporarily ground certain Max aircraft from service.

The planes will be inspected to “allow for verification that a sufficient ground path exists for a component of the electrical power system.”

“The FAA will ensure the issue is addressed,” the Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement. “Passengers should contact airlines about possible flight delays and cancellations.”
