Travelers at Bradley International Airport react to grounding of Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 aircraft

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump issued a grounding of all Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 aircraft.

News 8’s Bob Wilson talked to people just getting off the plane, and most hadn’t heard the news because they were in the air when the President grounded the flights. 

The 737 Max 8 and 9 don’t routinely fly out of Bradley International Airport, but people from the airport changing planes in New York or Chicago can very easily end up on one there. It’s a popular aircraft, and what we’re hearing is that the planes are experiencing a mechanical problem.

They have been grounded in other countries, travelers at Bradley were thankful on Wednesday.

“I have read the other countries have done the same thing and if they’ve done the research and found out that they should no longer be in the air, then they should be on the ground,” Jerri Wingard of Windsor said.

So how do you know if you are on a Boeing 737 Max 8 or 9?

When you’re on the plane, just pull out the safety card and it will say the type of aircraft right there on the top of the card.

Right now, you will not be on one because they are all on the ground.
