American Airlines cancels Max flights through mid-August

American Airlines extends Boeing 737 Max cancellations through August

Southwest now has 34 Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft in their fleet, and has 246 more aircraft on order with Boeing.

American Airlines announced on Sunday it would scrap some 115 flights per day in the coming months because its fleet of Boeing 737 MAX planes is being grounded until August 19.

Southwest's decision will lead to 160 cancellations of some 4,200 daily flights between June 8 and August 5, while American's removal through August 19 means about 115 daily cancellations, or 1.5 percent of its summer flying schedule each day.

"We remain confident that the impending software updates, along with the new training elements Boeing is developing for the Max, will lead to recertification of the aircraft soon", Parker and Isom told employees.

Airlines are being forced to ground their planes longer than expected after Boeing and the FAA said the company needed more time to complete changes to a flight-control system suspected of playing a role in the recent crashes.

Licence plates will also bear a new slogan - "A Place to Grow" - which will replace the current "Yours to Discover". Horwath joked that having a licence plate that mirrored Ford party colours might cause a lot of rear-end accidents.

Boeing has identified a faulty sensor that is part of the Boeing 737 MAX's MCAS system. It will likely submit the fix to Federal Aviation Administration regulators within the next few weeks. The FAA have convened a meeting on April 12 with safety representatives of the three USA -based airlines that have the Boeing 737 MAX in their fleets, as well as the pilot unions for those airlines.

"You can't hide the 737, you've got thousands of them of all types flying worldwide today for airlines", Henry Harteveldt, travel industry analyst and founder of Atmosphere Research Group, told Business Insider.

United Airlines, with 14 MAX jets, has largely avoided cancellations by servicing MAX routes with larger 777 or 787 aircraft, but the airline president, Scott Kirby, warned last week that the strategy was costing it money and could not go on forever.

"But by extending our cancellations through the summer, we can. provide confidence to our customers and team members when it comes to their travel plans". Southwest have had to cancel around 90 flights per day and reported in their financial filings a loss of $150 million in revenue.

In an early-morning post on Twitter, Trump, who owned the Trump Shuttle airline from 1989 to 1992 and is an aviation enthusiast, weighed in with his own advice.
