IMG_0473 (1)American Airlines said Wednesday that it is removing the troubled Boeing 737 Max out of its schedule through mid January.

Regulators grounded the jet in the aftermath of two fatal hull losses, an Ethiopian Airlines flight in March and last year’s Lion Air crash.

The world’s largest airline has removed the single-aisle jetliner from flights through January 15, 2020.

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

“American Airlines remains confident that impending software updates to the Boeing 737 MAX, along with the new training elements Boeing is developing in coordination with our union partners, will lead to recertification of the aircraft this year,” the airline said in a statement earlier in the year.
