Southwest Airlines will extend cancellations of Boeing 737 MAX flights through June 6. The airline announced the news on its website last month.
The update results in an estimated 330 weekday flights being canceled from its entire peak-day schedule of more than 4,000 daily flights. Southwest is the largest operator of MAX planes in the world with 34 in its fleet.
Southwest previously canceled 737 MAX flights through April 13.
The change comes on the heels of the airline’s pilots filing a lawsuit against Boeing over lost income.
Southwest said in December, it plans to share around $125 million in 737 MAX compensation with its employees. The company reached a confidential agreement with Boeing to receive compensation for a portion of projected financial damages resulting from the grounding of the planes since March.
The plane’s global grounding led to more than 10,000 monthly flights canceled.
