American Airlines extends Boeing 737 Max cancellations through August

This comes just days after American Airlines announced the cancellation of all their Boeing 737 MAX flights through to June 5th.

The plane's grounding has also threatened the US summer travel season, with some airlines removing the 737 from their schedules through August and cancelling a number of scheduled flights.

Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 jets have been grounded in the United States since March 13, when the FAA concluded that it needed to investigate "the possibility of a shared cause" between the two crashes.

CNBC reported Boeing said Thursday it has completed 96 flights with the new Max software fix. The FAA also said the agency would not rush to get the 737 MAX flying again.

The plane is grounded as investigations continue into the Ethiopian Airlines crash last month which killed all 157 people on board.

With fewer seats available for peak travel, analysts say there could be higher last-minute summer fares, especially for business class travellers.

The announcement made American the second major carrier to cancel flights using the plane through the busy summer season in the northern hemisphere. American's cancellations will last through August 19.

The cancellations come after the Boeing 737 Max's anti-stall software was implicated in an airplane crash in March in Ethiopia, CNBC reported. Some airlines are also weighing extending aircraft leases and bringing back idled planes, but with unclear MAX timing, no option is clear-cut or cheap, consultants said.
