The 737 Max crisis could destroy Boeing’s plans for the 797

The 737 Max crisis could destroy Boeing’s plans for the 797

The fallout from the Boeing 737 Max issues continues - Norwegian ceases worldwide operations in multiple us locations.

In order to maintain routes such as Dublin, Cork, Shannon to Hamilton, Newburgh and Providence, the low-priced airline used several strategies including placing the widebody 787 and 737-800 on these flights.

"Compounded by the global grounding of the 737 MAX and the continued uncertainty of its return to service, this has led us to make the hard decision to discontinue all six routes from Dublin, Cork and Shannon to the USA and Canada from 15 September 2019", the company said in a statement.

However, uncertainty remains for pilots and cabin crew at the Dublin base.

Europe's third-largest budget carrier had to lease replacement planes to service the routes since March due to the global grounding of the Boeing (BA.N) 737 MAX, a more costly option than flying its own planes.

In June, the FAA announced that they had diagnosed an additional safety issue with the Boeing 737 Max fleet. It will continue to fly from Dublin to Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen.

Between the two animated sequels, there's actually more than enough material to take inspiration from for a live-action follow-up. The live-action version of " Aladdin " will be available on digital release August 27 and on Blu-ray on September 10.

Boeing's 737 Max jets were grounded around the world in March after the new planes were linked to two deadly crashes.

The Shannon Group says it will continue to work with and support its other transatlantic airline partners, Aer Lingus, United, Delta and American Airlines, to ensure the continued success of their services between Shannon and JFK and Newark airports for the NY market, as well as Boston and Philadelphia.

NA said in a statement that anyone made redundant will be made a "last resort" and that the airline's decision is also being made with the approval of trade unions to ensure that the affect on staff is limited.

RTE reports that "Norwegian Air began operating routes between Dublin, Cork, Shannon and the U.S., amid much fanfare, in July 2017, carrying 650,000 passengers in that time".

However, it added that customer numbers were marginally ahead of prior year and the segment delivered a "stable" underlying result outside of the 737 MAX grounding impact.

Flights travelling from the United States, as well as from Cork and Shannon in Ireland saw flights grounded in March and rerouted through Dublin.
