The CAAC have ordered all Chinese airlines to temporarily suspend Boeing 737MAX operations.

"Kiasu" overreaction or legitimate safety concerns, it may be too early to tell...

Ethiopian Airlines decided to ground their 737MAX too

I agree it's too early to tell the cause although there are some similar problems with the vertical speed which also happened on the Lion Air crash.

Seems like OM also grounded their MAX 8 flights so it looks like you will be on another aircraft type instead.
