American Airlines to cancel 115 flights daily over 737 MAX

American Airlines extends Boeing 737 Max cancellations through August

Boeing's 737 MAX aircraft was grounded worldwide in March following a fatal crash on Ethiopian Airlines that killed all 157 aboard, just five months after a similar crash on Lion Air that killed all 189 passengers and crew.

Southwest Airlines Co, the world's largest MAX operator, and American Airlines Group Inc with 34 and 24 MAX jetliners respectively, have removed the aircraft from their flying schedules into August.

The plane's grounding has also threatened the US summer travel season, with some airlines removing the 737 from their schedules through August and canceling a number of scheduled flights.

A crash involving the same model happened off Indonesia in October. American Airlines on Sunday said it was cancelling flights on Boeing 737 Max aircraft through August 19 while it waited for Boeing and the US' Federal Aviation Administration to fix and recertify the aircrafts' flight-control systems.

The move reflects a growing realization among Boeing's airline customers that a worldwide grounding of Boeing jets, now in its fourth week, is unlikely to wrap up soon.

"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.

Business Insider previously reported that the company restructured its AR-glasses division late a year ago as it inches closer to launching a commercial product.

The cancellations represent 1.5 per cent of American's total flights each day of the (northern) summer. "We have been in continuous contact with the FAA, Department of Transportation, National Transportation Safety Board, other regulatory authorities and are pleased with the progress so far".

Initial reports in the wake of the FAA's decision to ground the Boeing 737 MAX pointed towards a quick software fix that could have allowed the aircraft to return to service in a matter of weeks. Preliminary investigations have pointed to problems with an anti-stall feature.

American Airlines has cancelled all its MAX flights.

Boeing is working on proposed software updates that would prevent the repeated triggering of a system that can drive the plane's nose down.

Park said canceling the flights now will help the airline plan for its busiest travel season of the year, CNBC reported.
