American Airlines says the Boeing 737 Max will be back in the air in January

The US mega-carrier American Airlines has said its Boeing 737 Max fleet is expected to return to service from the middle of January 2020.

The airline anticipates that the impending software updates to the Boeing 737 Max systems will lead to recertification of the aircraft later this year and resumption of commercial service in January 2020.  This is despite any regulatory body giving the green light to the software updates to make the aircraft airworthy. 

American's passengers booked on a 737 Max flights up to January 6th will be automatically reaccommodated on the same flights operated by a 737-800 with the same seat configuration. 
Customers booked on a Max from January 7th  through to  January 15th majority of these customers will be accommodated on the same flight operated by a different aircraft type, which may include a 737-800 or an Airbus aircraft. 
Beginning January 16th: American expects to slowly phase in the 737 Max for commercial service and will increase flying on the aircraft throughout the month and into February.
