American Airlines has continued the cancellation of their 737 MAX flights through April 24. As a result, about 90 American Airlines flights are being canceled each day.

When it comes to flight cancellations, not every flight that was operated by a 737 MAX was canceled, as the airline is swapping out aircraft on certain routes. As a result, some flights that were not originally scheduled to be operated by a 737 MAX are being canceled as they utilize these aircraft on other routes.

Per American Airlines,

American continues to await information from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT), National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), other regulatory authorities and Boeing that would permit the 24 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in our fleet to resume flying.

In an effort to provide more certainty and avoid last minute flight disruptions, American has extended cancellations through April 24. This will result in the cancellation of approximately 90 flights each day based on our April schedule. By proactively canceling these flights, we are able to provide better service to our customers with availability and rebooking options.

American’s Reservations team will contact affected customers directly by email or telephone. We know these cancellations and changes may affect some of our customers, and we are working to limit the impact to the smallest number of customers.

  1. Oh Darned! Torture Tube flights cancelled. Can’t say I’m sad to hear that. With the awful service, severe cutbacks that AA has imposed due to America West takeover, I can’t say that I feel for them.

    I used to love AA, but now fly them only where is nothing better schedule or availability-wise.
