American cancels MAX flights until early 2020

The grounding of the MAX prompted Boeing to trim its production of the plane and has forced it to store hundreds of new aircraft that can not be delivered until the Federal Aviation Administration and global civil aviation regulators clear it for service.

The aircraft was grounded earlier this year after two fatal crashes that killed a total of 346 people on board.

"American Airlines anticipates that the impending software updates to the Boeing 737 MAX will lead to recertification of the aircraft later this year and resumption of commercial service in January 2020", the airline said in a press release.

American Airlines has canceled Boeing 737 Max flights to the start of next year, indicating Boeing's estimate that the troubled plane will fly before the end of the year was optimistic.

Boeing plans to revise the 737 MAX software to take input from both of its angle-of-attack sensors in the anti-stall system linked to the two deadly crashes and has added additional safeguards.

This month marks the anniversary of the October 29 crash of a Lion Air flight that plunged into the Java Sea shortly after takeoff, killing all 189 passengers and crew aboard.

In both instances, preliminary investigations pointed to issues with an anti-stall system known as the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), which was created to compensate for changes to the plane's design.

Boeing's net order tally, including cancellations, was a negative 84 for the first nine months of 2019, also hit by the bankruptcy of India's Jet Airways JET.NS , which resulted in Boeing removing 210 aircraft from its order backlog.

Boeing said in a statement it was aware of the lawsuit and would vigorously defend against it.

FAA Administrator Steve Dickson told Reuters in September the agency would need about a month following the yet-to-be scheduled certification test flight before the planes could return to service.

American said it expects to slowly phase in the MAX for commercial service and to increase flying of the aircraft through the month and into February. Passengers affected by those changes will be contacted directly by the airline.

Flights scheduled on Max planes through January 6, will not be canceled. Most of the Boeing's other planes did not experience big swings. Schedules for travelers with reservations January 7-15 will be updated on Sunday.
