Crash-afflicted Boeing 737 MAX resumes passenger flights in US with take-off from Miami

An American Airlines flight from Miami, Florida on Tuesday marked the return of the troubled Boeing 737 MAX liner to US skies, after a 20-month ban was lifted by aviation safety regulators last month.
Two Boeing 737 MAX planes crashed within six months of each other, in October 2018 and March 2019, killing hundreds of people and prompting the widespread grounding of the fleet.

American Airlines Flight 718 left Miami at around 10:40am (Eastern Time) for New York’s LaGuardia Airport. The airline is the first in the US to return the 737 MAX to service – and only the third in the world, after Brazilian budget operator Gol Transportes Aereos and Mexico’s flag carrier, Aeromexico.

The MAX is probably the safest airplane in the skies. Because of the crashes, these machines have been double checked. I would worry more about aircrafts that have not crashed yet.
