The Federal Aviation Administration has said there is ‘no basis’ to ground Boeing 737 Max airplanes, after a second deadly crash involving the model in less than five months prompted other governments worldwide to ban the aircraft. ‘Thus far, our review shows no systemic performance issues and provides no basis to order grounding the aircraft,’ FAA chief Daniel Elwell said in a statement on Tuesday. Despite Boeing’s assurances that the plane is safe and reliable, the European Union, Britain and India joined China and other countries grounding the plane or banning it from their airspace as they await the results of the investigation into the crash. But the US has so far refused to take similar action against the American aerospace giant’s best-selling workhorse aircraft, despite the two recent crashes as well as a history of pilot complaints in recent months.
