American Airlines pushes back 737 MAX cancellations for 2nd time
American Airlines (A1G) (AAL) is pushing back the expected date on when its currently grounded Boeing 737 MAX fleet could take up to the skies again. The U.S. carrier now expects the airliner to come back no earlier than early September 2019.
American Airlines (A1G) (AAL) is extending cancellations for MAX for the second time, pushing the previously set August 19 deadline to September 3, 2019. For the airline, this means cancellations of approximatelly 115 flights per day.
Nevertheless, the carrier is “confident” that impending 737 MAX software updates will lead to recertification of the aircraft “soon” and claims it is “pleased with progress to date”, as is noted in a statement issued on June 9, 2019.
American Airlines (A1G) (AAL) is the first of the major U.S. airlines to cancel MAX flights all throughout summer 2019. Based on its most recent update on the topic, issued in April 2019, Southwest Airlines (LUV) schedule takes MAX grounding into account until August 5, 2019. Similar date, August 3, is targeted in United Airlines latest provisions, as revealed in late May 2019.
