Southwest pulls Boeing 737 MAX until February

|About: Southwest Airlines Co. (LUV)|By:, SA News Editor

Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV) says it has removed the Boeing (NYSE:BA) 737 MAX out of its schedules until Feb. 8, later than any U.S. airline, although Air Canada yesterday yanked the plane from its schedules until Feb. 14.

LUV's delay to a month past the carrier's previous expectation comes a few days after its pilots said they do not anticipate the MAX to return until February at the earliest.

American and United said last week that they do not expect to fly the planes until January, about a month later than they had previously forecast.
