DSC_0458American Airlines announced it is making additional changes to its flying schedule for May and early June as a result of the grounding of the Boeing 737 Max.

The 737 Max was grounded worldwide as the result of the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines 737 Max in March that had similarities to the October crash of a Lion Air 737 Max.

The airline removed the 24 737 Max aircraft, which it uses for an average of 90 daily flights, until at least June 5, 2019.

“In an effort to provide more certainty and avoid last minute flight disruptions, American has extended cancellations through June 5,” the airline said in a statement on Sunday.

Not all flights previously scheduled on a 737 Max will be cancelled. Many will be flown using other aircraft and other flights may be combined onto larger aircraft.
