For the first time since the Boeing 737 Max plane was grounded all over the world, American Airlines has suspended a route as a direct cause of the sleeping aircraft.
The airline will suspend flights between Oakland and Dallas / Fort Worth from July 6 to September 4 due to the Max Foundation, confirmed a business insider spokesman for Business Insider.
Although the US's Oakland-Dallas / Fort Worth flight is operated with a 737-800, another version of the 737 aircraft, unaffected by the foundation, is the fact that the American's 24 737 Max aircraft cannot fly, means that the airline has had to be strategic with its second aircraft to ensure full coverage.
"A flight that was not scheduled as a MAX aircraft could be canceled to allow our team to cover a MAX route with another flight," said the US spokesman. "Our goal is to minimize the impact on the smallest number of customers."
The US has canceled about 1
American has extended these cancellations several times during the Max Foundation, which is expected to continue until September 3. However, Max is expected to remain grounded through at least in the autumn.
American has three to four daily flights from Oakland. Passengers wishing to travel from the city to Dallas / Fort Worth can either connect in Phoenix or take a direct flight from nearby San Francisco or San Jose, California.
