It seems that the passengers’ fear of flying the Boeing 737 MAX on United has passed, or will have to, since the company will no longer facilitate rebookings.
The airline, which was born within Boeing itself, spent almost two years without flying the 737 MAX jet, due to accidents with the aircraft and the extensive safety modifications made to the aircraft.
With the return of the model at the end of last year, several companies, including United itself and the Brazilian GOL, gave the option of free rescheduling for the next flight if the passenger felt insecure in flying with the 737 MAX.
Now, according to AirwaysMagazine, until the beginning of June the American airline will not allow rebooking free of charge on flights with the Boeing 737 MAX, inducing passengers to board or pay the difference for the next flight out of their own pocket.
The company already operates 2,000 monthly flights with the new jet, and no serious problems have been reported in any of them. In its fleet, today there are 30 MAX 9 jets, in addition to another 80 on order and another 100 orders for the largest version ever made of the 737, the MAX 10.
