Flying United in August? Check your reservation for new 737 Max cancellations  3 Weeks ago

Source:   USA Today  

United Airlines has removed the grounded Boeing 737 Max from its schedule through Labor Day, joining American and Southwest as no clear timetable for the aircraft's return has emerged.

United had previously taken the plane out of its schedule through Sept. 3. The move means the cancellation of an additional 60 flights per day. 

The airline said affected travelers will be rebooked on alternate flights, in some cases at a different time, in others at the same time with a larger aircraft than originally planned. Travelers who can't be accommodated or don't like the alternate flights have will receive a refund.

The Max was grounded by the FAA on March 13 following two fatal crashes on the Max 8 in less than five months. United has 14 Max 9s in its fleet, the third largest U.S. operator of the Max. Southwest is No. 1, with 34 Max 8s, American has 24 Max 8s.

Boeing says it has a fix for the Max software system that played a role in both crashes, but it hasn't yet submitted it to the FAA. The FAA has to sign off on the fix and training measures before the plane is cleared to fly again in the United States.

Late Wednesday, another trouble spot for the plane emerged that could keep it out of service even longer, meaning airlines will likely have to keep extending the cancellations.

CNN reported that a new flaw was discovered that could push the plane downward. The flaw was discovered during simulator flights to test the software fix, the report said.
