American Airlines to cancel 115 flights daily over 737 MAX

American Airlines said Sunday that it would extend flight cancellations for Boeing 737 Max aircraft by four months while it waits for Boeing and the Federal Aviation Administration to fix and recertify the planes' flight-control systems, which have been implicated in two deadly plane crashes in recent months.
The cancellations represent 1.5 per cent of American's total flights each day of the (northern) summer.
The plane is grounded as investigations continue into the Ethiopian Airlines crash last month which killed all 157 people on board.
Senior officials at American Airlines said they were "confident" that the Boeing upgrade would be approved by U.S. aviation regulators before 19 August, despite its decision to ground its fleet of 24 planes until then.
That also means some flights that were not scheduled to take place on a Max plane may be canceled because the airline aims to affect the smallest number of customers.
All Boeing 737 MAX flights in the US have been grounded since March 13, following two deadly crashes within five months that killed a total of 346 people. It earlier removed the Max from its flight schedules through June 5.

Investigators are focusing on the plane's anti-stall software, the Manoeuvring Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS). US safety regulators have to approve the fix and decide on new training for pilots.
The FAA initially said Boeing would complete the software fix "no later than April".
Parker and Isom said they are "confident" in Boeing's impending software updates and new training proposals, and remain in continuous contact with regulatory authorities over the MAX recertification process.
"We're taking a comprehensive, disciplined approach, and taking the time to make sure we get it right", he said.
