Three US airlines extend the stop on Boeing 737 Max flights


The three US carriers that use the Boeing 737 Max plane have postponed the return of the plane to their schedules.

On Friday, United Airlines said it would operate without the plane until September 4, while American Airlines said it would do so until August 17. Southwest Airlines said Thursday it would do the same until August 10.

The three airlines had previously said they expected to bring the 737 Max in June, but none had provided a formal update since Boeing said last month that it did not expect regulatory approval to fly the plane until June or July. Once approval is granted, the airlines will have to prepare the planes and train the pilots, which would take weeks.

United said Friday that its decision allowed it to plan the service during the high season of summer trips with greater certainty, even if regulators authorize 737 Max to fly earlier.

The problems with the 737 Max have created an opportunity for Airbus, the European rival of Boeing, but Airbus has such a large order book that You cannot immediately benefit from the problems of Boeing.
