On March 13th, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) grounded all U.S.-registered Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. The American fleet currently includes 24 MAX aircraft with an additional 76 aircraft on order, of which seven were scheduled to be delivered in the second quarter.
The company now estimates that the cancellations in the second quarter negatively impacted pre-tax income by approximately $175 million.
The company has removed all MAX flying from its flight schedule through Nov. 2, 2019. With the flight cancellations extending an additional two months, the company now expects the MAX cancellations will negatively impact its full year 2019 pre-tax earnings by approximately $400 million.
