American Airlines said Sunday it is taking the troubled Boeing 737 Max out of its schedule through early November.

The news follows a similar announcement by United Airlines on Friday.

The world’s largest airline has removed the single-aisle jetliner from flights through November 3. United has cancelled all 737 Max flights through November 2.

American had previously said it expected to restart 737 Max flights by August 19, a date that changed in June to September 3.

The airline said it remains confident that the 737 Max will be recertified by year-end and that it is cancelling the flights now to allow travelers to “more reliably” plan their trips.
