Today, American Airlines announced that their grounded Boeing 737 MAX aircraft have been removed from their schedule until June 4, 2020. The new return to service (RTS) date has been extended from the previously announced RTS date of April 6, 2020. As previously reported, once the RTS has been authorized by the FAA, American Airlines will conduct demonstrations flights with invited guests and team members prior to releasing the aircraft into revenue service.


Passengers that have been booked on the 737 MAX through June 3, 2020 will see their reservations updated on aa.com. American plans a phased reintroduction of the aircraft throughout June and any passengers who will be impacted by further schedule changes will be contacted directly. Passengers who will be impacted by cancellations or schedule changes will be contacted by American Airlines by e-mail or phone starting January 19, 2020. If reservations were booked through a travel agent, customers will be contacted by their agency. The airline will issue refunds to customers booked on canceled flights that choose not to be rebooked. Customers can request refunds at aa.com/refunds.
