A TA flight from Istanbul to Birmingham has been turned back because of a ban on the Boeing 737 Max 8 overflying the UK’s airspace. Ireland has also joined the ban, as have several other countries.

More info here.

Wow, it looks like it got over half way there. You would be livid. You would have thought they would have given a notice period.
