Southwest joins other airlines in cancelling Boeing 737 MAX flights into June

Southwest Airlines Co. said it will remove the Boeing 737 MAX from its flight schedule through June 6 due to ongoing uncertainty regarding the timing of the aircraft's return to service, as well as Boeing Co.'s recommendation for pilot simulator training before airlines could fly the MAX again.

Of its total peak-day schedule of more than 4,000 daily flights, Southwest will cancel about 330 weekday flights to "reduce last-minute flight cancellations and unexpected disruptions" for customers, according to a Jan. 16 statement.

This follows a similar announcement from American Airlines Group Inc., which said Jan. 14 that it would cancel previously scheduled 737 MAX flights through June 3. United Airlines Holdings Inc. said in December 2019 that it would pull out its MAX flights through June 4.
