American, Southwest, United Extend Boeing 737 Max Cancellations Into Spring

The three U.S. airlines that have had to ground the Boeing 737 Max aircraft – American Airlines, Southwest, and United – said they had delayed its plans to restart flights of the aircraft until spring, as the worldwide grounding of the beleaguered aircraft approaches the eight-month mark.

United Airline said Friday it would begin 737 Max flights on June 4, while American and Southwest both said they would extend the cancellation of 737 Max flights to early April.

The news comes shortly after Boeing announced it was temporarily halting 737 Max production starting next month.

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.

American, Southwest, and United have each cancelled tens of thousands of flights – many during the busy and profitable summer travel season – since the grounding went into effect.
