American Airlines has become the first U.S. carrier to return Boeing’s troubled 737 Max aircraft to commercial service after the plane was grounded globally in 2019 following two fatal crashes that killed 346 people. After nearly two years of research, assessment, and repair work, the jet was recently cleared by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to fly again. American Airlines flight 718 departed Miami International Airport at around 10.30 a.m. for New York City’s LaGuardia Airport on Tuesday, December 29, completing the two-and-a-half-hour trip without incident. Flightradar24 confirmed the aircraft’s departure, adding that American had become the third airline globally to resume commercial flights after GOL and Aeromexico. The first @AmericanAir #737MAX revenue flight since March 2019 has just departed, making American the 3rd airline worldwide (after GOL and Aeromexico) and the 1st in the US to return the MAX to service. https://t.co/oVnrirdjPm … [Read more...] about Boeing’s troubled 737 Max plane resumes commercial service in U.S.
