Boeing 737 Max is grounded at Kahului Airport

A United Airlines Boeing 737 Max has been grounded at Kahului Airport and is shown in this photo taken Thursday. (A photo published on Page A1 on Thursday showed the wrong plane. The Maui News apologizes for the error.) The plane was grounded after Flight 417 from Los Angeles landed at 11:18 a.m. Wednesday, per a Federal Aviation Administration order. Its return flight 706 was canceled. A United website said both flights were canceled Thursday, but the airline accommodated the passengers on 777-200 aircraft on alternative numbered flights, an airline spokesperson said Thursday. The airline’s website showed both flights on schedule today.
