Boeing’s 737 Max Returns to U.S. Skies
Updated on

Boeing Co.’s 737 Max has returned to commercial service in the U.S., with the first flight since two deadly crashes prompted the longest aircraft grounding in the nation’s history.

An American Airlines Group Inc. 737 Max 8 landed at New York’s LaGuardia Airport at 1:10 p.m. on Tuesday, arriving slightly ahead of schedule from Miami in the first leg of a round trip. U.S. regulators lifted the flying ban last month after ordering extensive revisions to the plane’s flight-control computer and other changes.
