Local travel plans not impacted by jet crash

After the Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed 157 people on Sunday, local travel agents are addressing potential concerns about air travel plans in the future.  Sue Wehrli of Sturgeon Bay, owner of Wehrli Travel, says although customers have not expressed reservations yet about booking a flight on a Boeing 737 Max, she can accommodate anyone easily.  



Wehrli says she is experiencing her best year to date in the travel business and that the most popular trips booked this year have been river cruises in Europe.   


UPDATE: Since the publication of this article, President Donald Trump issued an executive order grounding all Boeing 737 Max airplanes until further notice. The United States is one of 50 countries to issue the suspension since Boeing made the recommendation earlier this week.
