Initially, the cancellations were scheduled to last through March 28.
The advance cancellation is supposed to give customers better rebooking options.
American Airlines said it will be contacting customers affected directly by email or telephone but, not all flights previously scheduled on a Max will be canceled. Officials said they are working to substitute other aircrafts.
It is still important to note, if your flight was not scheduled to be on a Max, you still may be affected.
The airline said it will be using different aircrafts to cover Max routes. The goal, they said, is to impact the smallest number of people.
"Safety is the No. 1 thing. If I got bumped off my flight, even though I’m a paying passenger, oh, absolutely, it would be very, very frustrating. After finding out what you're telling me, I'm definitely going to make sure my flight is not canceled," traveler Linda Wahe said.
"I mean, that's a big deal for travelers. You know, you put them in a bad spot if they need to get somewhere quick, but then again, safety. You want to make sure while you're in the air that safety is the main concern," traveler Zachary James said. "Just good for them to look out for them and protecting the consumer, that shows the passengers that safety is on their minds, so that's good for American Airlines to be doing that."
American Airlines said if your flight was canceled and you do not want to rebook, you may request a full refund.
