NBC: Ethiopian Airlines is not sure it will fly the Boeing 737 MAX again

NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt has made this announcement for a segment to air tonight:

The CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, Tewolde Gebremariam, tells NBC News in an exclusive interview that he is not sure his airline will ever fly the 737 MAX again, saying: “If we fly them again, we’ll be the last airline to fly them again.”  He added, “At this stage, I cannot fully say that the airplane will fly back on Ethiopian Airlines. It may if we are fully convinced and if we are able to convince our pilots, if we are ever to convince our traveling public.”

He continued, “Because, you know, other airlines have grounded the airplane, but in our case beyond grounding the airplane, we had this tragic accident just a couple of months ago. So it takes a lot of efforts to convince everybody that the airplane is safe. But beyond that, I think we have to convince ourselves and we want to do that.”
