American Airlines will cancel flights in early June as the Boeing 737 Max continues to hit the ground, affecting 90 flights per day.

The airline had previously canceled daily 90 daily flights April 24 for the temporary loss of its 24 Max 8s. The Federal Aviation Administration had landed the planes on March 13 because the latest model of Boeing's workhorse 737 was involved in two fatal crashes in less than five months, rescheduling affected passengers and reducing last-minute flight cancellations. American offers 6,700 daily flights.

Southwest Airlines, which has been struck since the Max 8's groundbreaking for a series of last-minute flight cancellations, took a similar step on March 29, when it decided to pull its 34 Max 8 off its schedule until at least May.

American has 24 of the aircraft in his fleet.

American CEO Doug Parker had hinted that more flight cancellations were pending.

The airline said that affected passengers will be notified by phone or email and that not only flights on the Max 8 will be canceled.

The flights of the Max 8 of the airline concentrated on Miami and were only canceled. These flights would affect this operation too much. Instead, the airline cuts frequencies on other routes and uses aircraft that have been released on former Max-8 routes.

Travelers whose flights are canceled can receive a refund if they do not wish to rebook, regardless of the type of ticket they have purchased
