All five 737 MAX 8 's delivered to Aerolineas so far were grounded in March 2019 as part of the worldwide grounding of the type stemming from the Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines MAX crashes in October 2018 and March 2019, respectively.  The two remaining MAX 8's not in service yet, LV-GVE (c/n 64208/6717) and LV-HKV (c/n 44294/6807) are parked at Buenos Aires Ezeiza (EZE) and Aeroparque (AEP), respectively, and are expected back in service in the coming months.
