Southwest, American extend Boeing 737 Max cancellations until early March

In AVIATION

Southwest Airlines will remove all Boeing 737 Max planes from its flight schedule through March 6, delaying the plane’s return longer than any other U.S. carrier, the airline announced Friday. Separately, American Airlines also announced after the bell Friday that it will continue its 737 Max cancellation through March 4, resuming commercial service on March 5.

Southwest had previously grounded the plane through Feb. 8, while American Airlines cut the 737 Max from its flight schedule through Jan. 15.

The decision comes as the Southwest Airlines flight attendants union weighs suing Boeing over lost pay as a result of the prolonged 737 Max grounding. The airline’s pilots sued Boeing last month over what it said was more than $100 million in lost wages due to the grounding. Read More
