American Airlines said on Sunday it would extend the cancellation of Boeing 737 Max flights to August 19, bringing the number of daily cancellations to 115 or 1.5 percent of the company’s daily flights in the summer.

In a letter to employees and customers, Chief Executive Officer Doug Parker and President Robert Aisum said they believed the aircraft would be re-approved before Aug. 19, but they wanted to ensure reliability “during the peak travel season and give customers and employees confidence in their mobility plans“He said.

In March, airlines around the world banned the use of 737 Max planes after an Ethiopian Airlines plane crashed and 157 people were killed, just five months after a similar plane crash to Indonesian airline Leonard killed all passengers and crew members resulting in 189.

The US company has 24 Max aircraft and is waiting for another 16 aircraft this year.

Boeing is developing an aircraft control program to prevent the sudden stop of the aircraft, which is being investigated in both incidents..
