American Airlines extends flight cancellations through November

NEW YORK (KUSI) – American Airlines is canceling flights into early November because of the Boeing 737 Max grounding.

The world’s largest airline announced Sunday it’s extending cancellations until November 2. It amounts to roughly 115 flight cancellations per day.

The US Federal Aviation Administration and safety regulators around the world have not cleared the troubled plane for operations. The plane was grounded in March following two fatal crashes.

Boeing’s efforts to get the plane back in the air hit another snag last month. A new potential problem with the jet was discovered during testing, making it possible the 737 Max will be grounded into late 2019 or early 2020.
