Southwest Won’t Fly The Boeing 737 MAX Until At Least August

Boeing developed a software update to the plane's flight systems and is rolling out new training for pilots in response. But now it seems the planes will not return to service until August 19, 2019, Reuters reports, also providing an estimation that approximately 1.5% of the carrier's daily summer schedule or 115 flights per day would be cut.

The plane's grounding has also threatened the US summer travel season, with some airlines removing the 737 from their schedules through August and cancelling a number of scheduled flights. Airline officials say by extending cancellations through the summer they can plan more reliably for the peak travel season.

Brand Finance had previously estimated the damage to the value of Boeing's reputation at $7.5 billion immediately after the March 10 crash of an Ethiopian Airlines jetliner, the second fatal accident involving the 737 MAX in five months.

That also means some flights that were not scheduled to take place on a Max plane may be cancelled because the airline aims to affect the smallest number of customers.

Terrific Pollard Does it Alone for Mumbai Indians
Joseph, who snatched a record-breaking six-wicket haul in his previous match, sent down two overs for 22 runs. With a century to be scored in this game available at 17/2, I think that is exceptional value.
