NEWSFILE -- American Airlines is now extending flight cancellations for their Boeing 737 Max 8 Aircrafts by four months.

This will give them until mid-August, to find a fix for the planes' flight-control system. The move will affect about 115 flights per day.

Southwest has already cancelled flights involving the 737 Max 8 Aircrafts through early August.

American's CEO says by extending cancellations through the Summer months, it can plan more reliably for the peak holiday travel season.
