WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A union representing pilots at Southwest Airlines Co (N:) on Monday said it believes the grounded Boeing 737 MAX (N:) will likely return to the skies in “probably a February time frame to say the least.”
Southwest, United Airlines (O:) and American Airlines (O:) have all pushed back the estimated return of the plane to January. A key step — a certification test flight by Boeing — is not expected until early November. Boeing has said it hopes flights can resume before the end of the year.
