American Airlines extended cancellations of flights involving the grounded Boeing 737 Max jet on Sunday in a move that’s expected to inconvenience hundreds of passengers daily through Labor Day.

The airline said it removed the grounded 737 Max from its schedule through Sept. 3, 2019, about three weeks later than previously announced, in the wake of two fatal Boeing crashes that left 346 people dead.

Passengers whose flights were not scheduled on the 737 Max could also face cancellations, the airline said, signaling that it plans to prioritize high-passenger flights.

“A flight that was not scheduled as a MAX flight might be canceled to enable our team to cover a MAX route with a different aircraft,” the airline said in a statement on Sunday. “Our goal is to minimize the impact to the smallest number of customers.”

Passengers whose flights have been canceled can ask for a full refund if they don’t want to be rebooked, according to the airline’s statement.

American also revealed that it will need about 45 days for training once Boeing rolls out expected software updates to fix a number of malfunctions with the 737 Max passenger planes.
