Air Canada Drops 737 MAX From Flight Schedule Until February 14

Air Canada has announced that it has removed Boeing Co's 737 MAX planes from flight schedules until February 14, citing uncertainty around the aircraft's return to service.

Air Canada, which has 24 737 MAX aircraft in its fleet, is the first North American airline to extend the cancellation until February, as the grounding drags on longer than expected.

The 737 MAX has been grounded worldwide since mid-March following two fatal crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia that killed 346 people.

Other Airlines' MAX Plans

Last week, United Airlines said that it was extending cancellations of 737 MAX flights until January 6, as regulators continue to extensively review Boeing's proposed software changes to the grounded plane.

Among other US airlines that operate the MAX, Southwest Airlines Co has cancelled flights through January 5 and American Airlines Group Inc until January 15.
