    EMERGENCY ORDER OF PROHIBITION
    This Emergency Order of Prohibition is issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) pursuant to 49 U.S.C. § 40113(a) and§ 46105(c).

This Order also prohibits the operation of Boeing Company Model 737-8 and Boeing Company Model 737-9 series airplanes in the territory of the United States. Airplanes covered by this Order, if in flight at the time this Order is issued, may proceed to and complete their soonest planned landing, but may not again takeoff.

    SCOPE AND EFFECT
    This Order applies to all persons operating the Boeing Company Model 73 7-8 and Boeing Company Model 737-9 airplanes in the territory of the United States, and to U.S. certificated operators conducting flights with Boeing Company Model 737-8 and Boeing Company Model 737-9 airplanes. These airplanes are hereinafter referred to as the Boeing 737 MAX series airplanes. This Order is effective immediately. This Order prohibits the operation of Boeing 737 MAX series airplanes by U.S. certificated operators.

      Some folks say the AR system is subject to management abuse, and recommend a return to the old DER system where DER's would report to the FAA, rather than to Boeing managers, as is the case under the AR system.

          All 737-8 and 737-9 aircraft are MAX. The NGs all had the "00" at the end.
