Kayak is now letting travelers filter out Boeing 737 Max 9 planes.

While Kayak previously offered the ability to filter out certain aircraft, a company spokesperson tells 404 Media they noticed a “spike” in usage after a door blew out of a Boeing 737 Max 9 during an Alaska Airlines flight.

That’s why the site has started letting users specifically filter out both the 737 Max 9 and 737 Max 8 instead of grouping them in a single filter. This tool might not come in handy right now, though, as the 737 Max 9 is still grounded while the FAA investigates.
