Norwegian has decided to "send Boeing the bill" for costs related to the UK’s ban on flying the MAX series aircraft following the Ethiopian Airlines crash. The following was an excerpt from this Buying Business Travel article.

"Meanwhile, travel risk management firm WorldAware has recommended that travelers avoid flights using the B737 Max 8 and Max 9 'until we know if the Ethiopian Airlines and Lion Air crashes are linked'. The company believes authorities are likely to lift any ban on the aircraft within the next two weeks and that the move should not cause significant disruptions to global air travel.

The firm also specified that its recommendation does not apply to the B737-800 or B737-900, which are different models to the Max aircraft."
