Biggest ever: Boeing MAX 737 likely biggest ever insurance payout: SP

It looks like more delays are likely ahead, as a briefing between the company and global regulators was scuttled when the aviation giant was, per The Wall Street Journal, accused of having "failed to provide technical details and answer specific questions about modifications in the operation of MAX flight-control computers".

"The upshot ... is likely to be several more weeks of delay that could significantly reduce the likelihood that numerous planes would be back flying passengers in North America during the Christmas holidays, as Boeing and some USA carriers have publicly projected", Pasztor and Sider write.

The fast-selling 737 model has been grounded worldwide since March while Boeing updates flight control software at the center of two fatal crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia that together killed 346 people within a span of five months.

While the announcement leaves open the possibility that American will resume flights on the plane for the busy holiday season, it also underlines the duration of the 737 Max grounding, which is now in its sixth month. "In total, approximately 140 flights per day will be cancelled through December 3".

American Airlines removed the Boeing 737 Max from its schedule until December 3.

The Seattle plane maker is also keeping its 737 Max customers up-to-date on all the latest developments and its plans for getting around 600 grounded planes back in the air.

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has historically taken the lead on certifying Boeing plane, leaving different regulators globally to follow suit. "It has no value to them", says Marks.

Responding to The Wall Street Journal report, a Boeing spokesman said: "Our best current estimate continues to be a return to service of the MAX that begins early in the fourth quarter...."
