Amer­i­can cancels Boe­ing 737 Max flights to Dec. 3

The Morning Call - - LOCAL NEWS -

Amer­i­can Air­lines says it is delaying the ex­pected re­turn date for its Boe­ing 737 Max jets.

The air­line said Sun­day that while it “re­mains con­fi­dent” that com­ing soft­ware up­dates and train­ing will mean re­cer­ti­fi­ca­tion of the air­craft this year, it is ex­tend­ing can­cel­la­tions for Max flights through Dec. 3.

The air­line says this means about 140 flights per day will be can­celed through Dec. 3. Not all flights sched­uled on the Max will be can­celed, though.

The air­line says it will use other air­craft for some of the flights. But some flights not sched­uled on the Max jets may also be can­celed.

United Air­lines had also de­layed the Max re­turn date through Dec. 19.

Max jets have been grounded since March af­ter two ac­ci­dents killed a to­tal of 346 peo­ple in Ethiopia and In­done­sia.
