Southwest plan for the 737 Max to be out of action until August

The US low-cost-carrier and primary Boeing 737 Max customer is planning a summer without the grounded jet it has advised this week.

The airline's President Tom Nealon advised on Thursday 11th April, it had modified its schedule through to August 5th, 2019. The previous schedule amendment had gone through to June 7th to cover for the grounded jets.

"While the timing for the return to service of the MAX remains unclear, what is very clear is our commitment to operate a reliable schedule and provide the famous Customer Service you expect from us. Our revised summer schedule allows us to accomplish those objectives." Nealon said.

"While the vast majority of our Customers' itineraries have remained unaffected, flight schedule changes have inconvenienced some of our valued Customers, and, for that, I offer my sincerest apologies."
