Speaking at the White House, President Trump said the United States is issuing a "emergency order to ground all 737 Max 8 and the 737 Max 9, and planes associated with that line".
Halifax travel consultant Bob Simes says sorting out flight cancellations caused by the grounding of Boeing 737 Max aircraft is going to be complex, especially for people with upcoming vacation packages.
John Samuelsen, global president of the Transport Workers Union of America, which represent aviation workers and flight attendants, said the grounding of the fleet was right "both for air travelers and aviation workers".
Even after numerous countries began to ground the planes to save lives, Boeing execs were said to be lobbying the government to keep the aircraft, and their stock price, aloft.

The Federal Aviation Administration won't ground the Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft despite mounting pressure from lawmakers and after other countries halted the planes' use after the second Boeing crashed in less than five months. All three carriers vouched for the safety of Max aircraft on Wednesday before Trump's ban. If the AOA sensor is faulty, it could create a false signal of a stall-which is what happened in the case of Lion Air Flight 610 and may have been the issue with the Ethiopian Airlines flight.
Canada Transport Minister Marc Garneau said in Ottawa that satellites tracked the Ethiopian Airlines flight and suggest possible "similarities" with a Lion Air crash on Oct 29.
