American Extends 737-MAX Grounding to August 2019

American Airlines (AA) announced and indicated today that their return to operation of the B737-MAX is being extended until August as opposed to June as was originally planned and intended. The FAA stated that the process continues but still maintains it's prohibition for the aircraft, in a letter to Civil Aviation Authorities as of March 20,2019. The reason was that the investigations of both the Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines had developed new information indicating some similarities between the two accidents. The order still remains in effect.

Seattle, Washington -- 18 April, 2019 Boeing representatives reported that the software and system modifications for the B737-8/9 MAX have been fully tested and are ready to be forwarded to the FAA for certification. As to exact time lines, FAA spokesmen told reporters that that "was an excellent question for Boeing".

Santa Ana, California -- 12 May, 2019 As an update to this on-going issue, the situation continues as Boeing; the FAA; and airlines, world-wide, are making due with their existing 737 fleet. We are continuing to monitor the situation and will report progress as it is released.
