American Airlines cancels all Boeing 737 Max planes through August 19

A grounded American Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 is seen parked at Miami International Airport

American Airlines announced Sunday it would scrap some 115 flights per day in the coming months because its fleet of Boeing 737 MAX planes is being grounded until August 19.

According to CNBC, the cancellations amount to about 115 flights per day, roughly 1.5 percent of the United States' total flying per day in the summer.

The airplane company extended flight cancellations through August 19 because the jets remain grounded, according to a report from CNBC.

American has 24 MAX jets and had previously planned to cancel MAX flights through early June.

That also means some flights that were not scheduled to take place on a Max plane may be canceled because the airline aims to affect the smallest number of customers. American Airlines had lowered one of its first quarter indicators in light of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes being grounded, along with the partial USA government shutdown and technical challenges.

Amazon also offers the Career Choice program that pays up to 95 percent of education tuition and fees for workers. Walmart, which has raised its minimum wage twice since 2015, pays an entry wage of $11 per hour.

"By extending our cancellations through the summer, we can plan more reliably for the peak travel season and provide confidence to our customers and team members when it comes to their travel plans".

Boeing is working on proposed software updates that would prevent the repeated triggering of a system that can drive the plane's nose down. "We have been in continuous contact with the FAA, Department of Transportation, National Transportation Safety Board, other regulatory authorities and are pleased with the progress so far".

The cancellations come after the Boeing 737 Max's anti-stall software was implicated in an airplane crash in March in Ethiopia, CNBC reported.

Boeing has been developing a software upgrade for an anti-stall system under scrutiny in two recent crashes. The software fix is to include changes to prevent the system from overreacting to bad data, a new set of cockpit alerts created to make pilots aware of potentially risky situations, and a new pilot training course. For one test flight in early April, Muilenburg joined the pilots on one of the planes.
