American Airlines, the largest airline in the world, said it will cancel about 90 flights daily by April 24. Prior to Sunday's announcement, American Airlines had canceled flights only until March 28th.
The airline hopes the 737 Max aircraft will fly again shortly, but said they would cancel flights within a month as they would wait for the United Kingdom aviation authority to notify them.
"Early redemption offers our customers additional availability and rebooking options," states the statement from American.
American has 24 of the 737 Max 8 jets. But not every flight for which a 737 Max was planned was canceled. The American said he had changed his flight plan for other aircraft for some of these flights.
"We have distributed [cancellations] over our system," the airline said. It is said that both international and domestic flights are affected. "We will vary from day to day because we want to influence the least number of customers."
American Airlines performs an average of 3,300 daily services on the main line and 3,400 on regional carriers and partner airlines.
Other airlines do not cancel out that far.
