Just after United Airlines extended its forecasted 737 MAX grounding, American Airlines has followed suit. The American carrier has told that it does not expect the 737 MAX to be back in its schedule until the 18th of August 2020.
Next month will see the first anniversary of the Boeing 737 MAX grounding. The latest generation of the popular Boeing 737 family has been out of action since a second fatal crash of the type took 157 lives last March. As Boeing and the FAA continue to work towards the aircraft’s recertification, the re-entry to service date has been pushed back many times.
