BHM flight to Las Vegas suspended due to Boeing 737 MAX issues

The Southwest Airlines Co. (NYSE: LUV) direct flight from Birmingham to Las Vegas has been suspended. The Birmingham Airport Authority said the flight was suspended because of issues surrounding the grounding of Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft, which has affected a number of airlines and routes around the world. “The Birmingham to Las Vegas nonstop flight is expected to be reactivated in our market pending a solution being found for the MAX program,” said Candace O’Neil, concessions revenue marketing manager at the BAA.
