American Airlines Pushes 737 MAX RTS Back Another Two Months

Will Not Fly In Revenue Service Again Before June, 2020

American Airlines has added at least two more months to its timeline for returning the Boeing 737 MAX to service, saying now that the earliest it will fly the airplane again in revenue service is June 4, 2020.

American said in a news release that the carrier remains in continuous contact with the FAA, Department of Transportation and Boeing. Based on the latest guidance, the airline anticipates that the resumption of scheduled commercial service on American’s fleet of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft will occur June 4, 2020. Once the aircraft is certified, American will run flights for American team members and invited guests.

American had previously canceled service on the MAX through April 6. On Jan. 19, American will run a formal schedule change, and customers who were previously booked on a MAX through June 3 will see their reservation updated on aa.com. Additional refinements to our schedule through June 3 will also occur in February 2020.

American expects to gradually phase in the MAX for commercial service and will increase flying on the aircraft throughout the month of June. Since American will gradually phase the MAX into our operation over the course of a month, additional refinements to our schedule may occur. Affected customers will be contacted directly.
