American Airlines extends cancellations of 737 MAX flights

American Airlines extends cancellations of 737 MAX flights”

American Airlines is pushing back the expected return of its Boeing 737 Max jets into next year and says the grounding of the planes cut its third-quarter pretax income by $140 million.

Prior to the MAX grounding, Boeing, which delivered 806 aircraft in 2018, was targeting 900 aircraft deliveries this year.

Boeing Co BA.N secured the first converted order in months for one of its grounded 737 MAX planes, company data for September showed on Tuesday, as it reported that total deliveries for the first nine months of 2019 had nearly halved from a year earlier.

Regulators are still reviewing proposed software changes to the grounded plane with no certain timetable for the jet's return.

In the announcement, American Airlines (AAL)said it expects the aircraft to be approved by regulators by January 16, the date it also anticipates the Max to begin carrying its passengers again.

Boeing said in a statement it was aware of the lawsuit and would vigorously defend against it.

The global MAX fleet was grounded in March and has been mired in controversy since two crashes killed 346 people.

Among other USA airlines that operate the MAX, Southwest Airlines Co has canceled flights through January 5 and United Airlines Holdings Inc until December 19.

The airline said Wednesday that it expects to slowly bring the plane back into its schedule starting January 16.

On Monday, the Southwest Airlines Pilots Association sued Boeing alleging that the planemaker "deliberately misled" the airline and pilots about its 737 MAX aircraft.
