Southwest cancels 737 Max flights until June

Southwest Airlines announced on Thursday that it will pull all of its flights on Boeing 737 Max aircraft until June. The company decided to extend its suspension period after it originally removed 737 Max from its schedule until April 13 as simulator training for pilots may become mandatory for this plane type.

The move comes after two fatal crashes of Boeing's aircraft in October 2018 and March 2019 that killed 346 people.

Previously, American Airlines opted to ground this aircraft until June as well while Malaysia Airlines suspended the deliveries of 25 Boeing 737 MAX that was scheduled to begin in the same month.
