Texas Airlines Lose Millions Due To Grounding Of 737 Max

Southwest Parks Grounded Boeing 737 MAX Planes At Remote California Airport

An industry analysis says the two major North Texas airlines are taking a beating from the grounding of the Boeing 737 Max jet. In the five months since the jets were grounded, Dallas-based Southwest Airlines has lost three-million passenger seats as a result, according to aviation travel company OAG. Fort Worth-based American Airlines has lost more than two-million seats in that same period. As a result of the grounding, holiday travel this year is expected to be more expensive, with demand likely to be greater than supply.
