American airline American Airlines will stop using Boeing 737 Max aircraft this year. The company said that after two crashes with take-off banned aircraft to take out by 16 January from the flight plan.
Boeing's problem flyers thus fall during the Christmas period with strong travel. Previously, American 737 Max flights had been canceled until December 3.
Numerous flight cancellations
Given the continuing difficulties that Boeing is facing in terms of the machine's readmission, the airline's move is not surprising.
The 737 Max has not been allowed to take off worldwide since mid-March. Manufacturer Boeing is under pressure to fix software issues that are seen as a key cause of the two crashes with a total of 346 fatalities.
MORE ON THE SUBJECT
The start-up bans make it difficult for the airlines involved, so many flights are canceled. In addition, it is unclear whether and when ordered 737 Max aircraft can be delivered. Boeing has already paid a lot of money for compensation payments.
The other two major US carriers with 737 Max machines in the fleet, Southwest and United Airlines, are currently not planning to crash jets until January 5 and December 19, respectively.
