Online travel insurance broker InsureMyTrip is expecting a record number of claims following the grounding of Boeing 737 Max jets. On Wednesday, President Donald Trump ordered the jets grounded in the US after two Boeing 737 Max 8 jets crashed less than six months apart. The planes have now been grounded or banned in the airspace of 50 countries. “This is a very rare occurrence, and we anticipate that travelers affected by this will be filing claims to see whether travel insurance will kick in,” said Gail Mangiante, claims advocate at InsureMyTrip.
