American Airlines cancels more Max flights through mid-August
American Airlines announced Sunday it was cancelling 115 flights per day through mid-August due to ongoing problems with the Boeing 737 Max aircraft.
The announcement made American the second major carrier to cancel Max flights through the busy summer season. Southwest Airlines, the largest operator of Boeing jets, announced last week that it would cancel its Max flights through August 5. American’s cancellations will last through August 19.
