The newly-inducted Boeing 737 Max plane of private carrier Jet Airways was pulled out of the operations again, the second time in less than a week, as an engine snag forced the airline to ground the plane here for more than a day, an industry source said.
"The commander of the 737 Max aircraft, operating Jet Airways flight 9W 311 from Tiruchirappalli to Mumbai, reported engine problem after landing in Mumbai. Following inspection, the aircraft was taken out of operations," the source said.
Jet Airways 737 Max airplanes are powered by CFM International LEAP-1B engines.
A query sent to Jet Airways did not elicit any response till the time of filing this report.
This was the second time in less than a week that that the newly-inducted aircraft had to be grounded.
The left engine of this plane had suffered a bird hit during a Mumbai-Chennai flight on July 3, which resulted into grounding of the aircraft for almost a day.
