The decision to ground the flight had something to do with a Boeing Co on July 2nd.The investigation into the crash landing of the 737 has nothing to do with it.
On July 2, local time, a Boeing Co cargo plane of Transair cargo Airlines failed its engine and made a forced landing in the waters of Hawaii, seriously injuring two pilots.
The Boeing 737-200 plane flew from Honolulu, the capital of Oahu, Hawaii, to Maui in the same state in the early morning. The FAA said the pilot reported engine failure and tried to fly back to Honolulu before making a forced landing at sea. Two pilots were rescued by the Coast Guard. Investigators investigated the safety measures taken by the company before the accident, and the company has now been grounded.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said on Friday that it would ban Honolulu Rhodes Airlines (Rhoades Aviation) from conducting flight or maintenance inspections until it complies with FAA regulations.

The FAA said the airline's decision to ground flights had nothing to do with the investigation into the forced landing of a Boeing 737 on July 2.
The company still has one aircraft in operation this week, similar to the one that crashed, a Boeing 737-200.
The rescued pilots tried to return to Honolulu after telling air traffic controllers that one of their engines had lost power and worried that another engine on the 46-year-old plane would also fail. Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board (National Transportation Safety Board) have found the wreckage of the plane, but have not yet found the black boxes that record flight data.
