Next extension: American Airlines will cancel Boeing 737 Max flights by March

The American airline American Airlines expects to be able to use the aircraft type Boeing 737 Max at the earliest from 5 March 2020 again. This was announced by the company on Friday (local time).

Previously, the airline had targeted January 16 as a date for the resumption of flights with these machines, which are occupied after two crashes with a start ban. Now these will be deleted from the flight plan for another month and a half. The deadline has thus been repeatedly extended.

The 737 Max has not been allowed to take off worldwide since mid-March. Manufacturer Boeing is under pressure to fix software issues that are considered to be a major cause of the two crashes with a total of 346 fatalities. Whether and when the machines are allowed to start again depends on international regulatory authorities and is currently unclear. The start-up bans make it difficult for the airlines involved, so many flights are canceled.
