Southwest removes Boeing 737 Max from flight schedule through early August as grounding persists


CNBC April 12, 2019

Southwest Airlines has removed the Boeing 737 Max jet from its schedule through Aug. 5, which marks a key summer travel period.

It's unclear how many flights will be canceled as a result.

Other major airlines like American and United have canceled thousands of flights because of the prolonged groundings.

Southwest Airlines LUV has removed the Boeing BA 737 Max jet from its schedule through Aug. 5, a key summer travel period. It's unclear how many Southwest flights will be canceled as a result.

Southwest suspended all 34 of its Max jets from its fleet of more than 750 Boeing 737 models after the Max's anti-stall software was implicated in an Ethiopian crash in March that killed 157 people.

There's no timetable for the return of the Max, which has been grounded since mid-March. Boeing has slowed production and stopped deliveries as it works on a software fix.

Other major airlines like American AAL and United UAL have canceled thousands of flights because of prolonged groundings. American, which operates 24 Max planes and has 76 more on order, canceled roughly 1,200 flights in March. United has 14 of the Boeing 737 Max 9s in its fleet, and like American, has canceled 737 Max flights through June 5.

Scrape the entire production of 737 MAX. Who in their right mind would care to board such a engineering failure.

4. It's all good - Boeing is "too big to fail", so - the taxpayers will save it . . . .

Customers will be inconvenienced,

airlines and related businesses will fail,

BUT WE'LL BAIL OUT BOEING

(sigh)
