Bloomberg reports there are 96 approx 737 Max 8 aircraft operated domestically in China. All are grounded, but schedule disruptions should be minimal.

Would be a brave person who chooses to fly on a 737-8 MAX at the moment...

From what I have read, Australian pilots aren’t worried. Having said that, no Australian Airline currently flies the 737 Max.

If Australia has temporarily suspended the Max 8 why is Fiji still operating the Max 8 out of Sydney?

CASA banned these last night and they specifically mentioned both Silk Air and Fiji Airways on their twitter handle.

The 737-800 model commonly used by Qantas and Virgin Australia is an older generation of the 737 family and thus not fitted with the new anti-stall (MCAS) system that is widely believed to be a key factor in recent 737 MAX crashes.

That Fiji Airways 737 MAX aircraft flew back to Nadi from Sydney without passengers. Only Pilots were onboard. Latest information is that Fiji Airways and Silk Air have now decided to ground their 737 MAX aircraft out of precaution pending further information from the incident investigation.
