An American Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8, on a flight from Miami to New York City, lands at LaGuardia Airport on Monday morning, March 11, 2019 in the Queens borough of New York City.

The airline announced Sunday that about 115 flights per day will be canceled through September 3, as part of its continued response to a pair of deadly crashes involving Boeing 737 Max planes. The Fort Worth-based carrier had previously pulled the Max from its flight schedule through august 19.

American Airlines is extending flight cancellations on its Boeing 737 Max jets through the Labor Day weekend, even though it says it's confident the grounded planes will fly again soon.

"By extending the cancellations, our customers and team members can more reliably plan their upcoming travel on American", American Airlines said in a statement on Sunday (US time).

The June 19 hearing will be the panel's second on the Max, which was grounded after two accidents that killed a total of 346 people. According to investigators, pilots of the crashed Ethiopian Airlines jet needed more than four minutes to realize that incorrect data from sensors urged the MCAS to push the nose down in a situation when the action was unnecessary. "In total, approximately 115 flights per day will be canceled through September 3".

According to a new a study for Atmosphere, led by consultant Henry Harteveldt, 20 percent of US travelers would definitely avoid flying on a Boeing 737 Max 8 plane in the first six months after flights on the aircraft resume, The Los Angeles Times reported.

When asked in late May if he could confirm when the 737 Max would return to service, Dan Elwell, the acting administrator of the FAA said that the agency could not provide a specific date.

Other carriers that use the Boeing 737 Max, like Southwest and Norwegian, have estimated the financial impact from the grounding to be $200 million and $58 million, respectively.

American said it is adjusting its schedules to affect the fewest number of passengers possible, and passengers whose flights are canceled will be able to rebook at no cost or get a full refund if they don't wish to take their trip.
