The airline said on Sunday that the date of resumption of service “highly depends on” the Federal Aviation Administration’s recertification. Since two crashes in March 2019 that killed 364 people, Max has been grounded worldwide.

American Airlines said that after obtaining certification, it will gradually enter the 737 Max. From December 29 to January 4, daily 737 Max flights from Miami to New York will begin. It will also consider extending the flight time beyond that time period.

The company said in a statement: “We are still in contact with the FAA and Boeing during the certification process, and we will continue to update our plan based on the time when the aircraft is certified.”

The airline said that new flights will be booked as early as October 24, and customers will be informed that they will take Max aircraft.

After announcing that calls for more federal assistance for the coronavirus failed, the United States laid off 9,000 jobs. The airline is also expected to announce its earnings on October 22. In the first half of this year, the company lost $5 billion because the coronavirus pandemic continues to cause huge losses to the aviation industry.

In early October, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued a draft of the proposed Max pilot training plan. This is just one of the six procedural steps that the agency has developed and must be completed before the airline is finally approved to fly again. Last Friday, the EU Aviation Safety Agency confirmed that it will also be close to a full ticket. However, it will take more than a month to complete the final approval.
