“We are highly confident that the MAX will be recertified prior to this time. But by extending our cancellations through the summer, we can plan more reliably for the peak travel season and provide confidence to our customers and team members when it comes to their travel plans,” said American Airlines chief executive Doug Parker in a statement.
An American Airlines spokesperson said a list of canceled flights will not be provided because they will vary by day.
