Southwest Airlines extends Boeing 737 Max jet cancellations

News

RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas – Southwest Airlines is taking the grounded Boeing 737 Max jets out of its flight schedule until November 2nd.

That’s a month longer than it had previously planned.

Southwest says it will drop about 180 flights a day from its schedule due to the continued grounding, and it’s delaying the addition of new pilots.

It is still unclear when the Boeing 737 Max planes will return to service.

Passengers who have already booked their travel will be notified and placed on other Southwest flights.

They can also request a refund if their flight is impacted.
