  • Southwest 737 MAX

United Airlines, the other U.S. 737 MAX operator, had thus far cancelled flights into January, although it may yet have to extend that time frame.

MCAS was created to compensate for the 737 Max having larger engines than previous 737 generations.

Southwest said Friday that it will keep its Max out of its schedule until March 6, about a month longer than previously planned, citing continued uncertainty.

Southwest extended its grounding by way of March 6, 2020, whereas American extended it till finally March 5.

Reuters reported this week that USA and European regulators will need to return to a Rockwell Collins facility in Iowa to complete an audit of Boeing's software documentation after regulators found gaps and substandard documents.

The announcement comes after an FAA audit found information missing from documentation Boeing submitted to regulators explaining its fixes to the MAX, according to a source familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Home-focused Southwest, which had beforehand set February eight as a return day for the MAX, talked about "proactively" eliminating the aircraft from assist minimized the probability of previous-moment cancellations and disruption.

The delays have thrown into question when Boeing can complete a certification test flight. The Federal Aviation Administration issued its order on March 13, 2019.

American had last stated that it planned ot begin reintroducing the jet to service on January 16, assuming that Boeing would meet its expected timeline of winning U.S. approval during the fourth quarter of this year. However, it now expects to return the planes to service by March 5, almost one year after the deadly Ethiopian Airlines accident which killed 157 people and led to the worldwide grounding of the 737 MAX.

Southwest parked its 34 Max planes in March, and had been scheduled to receive 41 more this year.

Boeing didn't immediately reply to a ask for for comment Friday.

Southwest Chief Executive Gary Kelly has said he is "not happy" with the MAX situation.
