Grounded Boeing Planes Affect Flights Out of Pittsburgh
Ongoing issues with the 737 Max 8 airline will reduce service to multiple destinations.
Ongoing problems for Boeing and the 737 Max 8 model could inconvenience some travelers out of Pittsburgh.
Also suspended will be Southwest seasonal service to Cancun, which flies on Saturdays from June 8 to June 29.
Southwest will also reduce service to Las Vegas to just Saturdays and Sundays.
Southwest had 34 of its Boeing 737 Max 8 jets in service, but the aircraft was grounded by the FAA following deadly crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia under similar circumstances.
Southwest President Tom Nelson said passengers whose flight schedules will be affected by the reduced service will be proactively notified and accommodated.
At this time, it is not clear how long the Boeing 737 Max 8 will remain grounded, or how service will be affected if the issues persist past the end of June.
