American Airlines extends Boeing 737 Max flight cancellations

American Airlines is extending the cancellation of its Boeing 737 Max 8 flights from June until mid-August. Last month, 737 Max aircraft were grounded worldwide following fatal crashes involving Ethiopian Airlines and Indonesia's Lion Air. Senior officials at American Airlines said they were "Confident" that the Boeing upgrade would be approved by US aviation regulators before 19 August, despite its decision to ground its fleet of 24 planes until then.

In October a 737 Max 8 flown by Indonesian airline Lion Air crashed, claiming the lives of 189 people.
