American Airlines is preparing to resume flights with Boeing 737 MAX.
The FAA has authorized the return of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft to operational service, on November 18. American Airlines (A1G) (AAL) is one of the airlines that received the FAA announcement and has already scheduled the first reactivation flights of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.
We remind you that, following the 2 accidents resulting in casualties involving 737 MAX aircraft, the global fleet of 737 MAX aircraft was recorded on the ground for checks and upgrades.
American Airlines is among the first companies to fly a 737 MAX.
The first 2 American Airlines Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, registered as N308RD and N314RH, took off on December 1 from Tulsa International Airport (TUL), Oklahoma.
The first aircraft took off at 18:30 p.m., local time, bound for Dallas. Flight AA9750 landed at Dallas Forth Worth International Airport at 20:30 p.m. The second aircraft took off, at 19:30 local time, from Tulsa airport, also to Dallas, operating flight AA9785
The registered N308RD aircraft was stored at Tulsa Airport as of April 23, 2019. The registered aircraft N314RH was stored at Roswell International Air Airport (ROW) between April 2019 and August 2020, and subsequently joined the other Boeing 737 MAXs stored in Oklahoma. .
American Airlines (A1G) (AAL) became one of the first airlines to resume commercial flights using Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.
The airline has scheduled a round-trip commercial flight from Miami International Airport (MIA) to New York's LaGuardia Airport (LGA) on December 29, 2020.
But before commercial flights, American Airlines will have to prepare the planes according to the new instructions. To regain the trust of passengers, 737 MAX American Airlines planes can be visited at the airports of Miami (MIA), LaGuardia (LGA) in New York and Forth Worth in Dallas.
The FAA has officially restored the right to fly Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, but airlines must prepare the aircraft according to instructions before they can operate commercial flights with this type of aircraft.
