United Airline, one of three U.S. airlines that had to ground its Boeing 737 Max fleet in the aftermath of the Ethiopian Airlines 737 Max crash in March, announced that it has delayed its plans to restart flights of the aircraft until November.

Because the airline had expected additional deliveries of the beleaguered aircraft over the summer, it will be forced to cancel an increasing number of flights each month into mid autumn.

The carrier has already cancelled approximately 40 to 45 flights per day, some 1,290, in July. Next month it will be forced to cancel 60 flights per day, for a total of 1,900.

For the month of September, United will cancel approximately 70 flights per day, for a total of 2,100, and for October, the number of daily cancellations will reach 95 per day, for a total of 2,900 flights.
