American Airlines canceling some flights through labor day

Local News

(WTAJ) — American Airlines is now canceling all of its 737 max flights through labor day.
The company says all twenty-four of its Boeing 737 max planes are grounded through September third.

That’s about a hundred and fifteen flights a day.
Initially, American had canceled all flights using those jets until August 19th.
The entire Boeing 737 max fleet has been grounded since March after a software issue caused two deadly crashes.

Boeing says the software has been fixed, but federal agencies still need to sign off on it.  

American says it will directly contact customers affected by the cancellations.
