The Boeing 737 Max could be grounded even longer as the FAA reportedly expands its safety review to include older 737 models.
If the Big Four airlines believe that they could win approval to acquire smaller airlines, there may be huge bidding wars for both Alaska Air and JetBlue, one analyst said.
Crews have sealed 34 Southwest Airlines Co. jets against the Mojave Desert’s sun, wind and sand, as well as insects and birds that can creep into wheel wells and engine air inlets. Southwest declined to discuss the expense, but one industry veteran said such sojourns run about $2,000 a month for each plane -- a small but critical cost amid Boeing’s many looming financial penalties. Once a week, Southwest mechanics spool up the big turbofans, boot up flight computers, and extend and retract flight-control surfaces such as wing flaps.
MONTREAL/FORT WORTH, Texas (Reuters) - The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) expects to approve Boeing Co's 737 MAX jet to return to service as soon as late June, representatives of the U.S. air regulator informed members of the United Nations' aviation agency in a private briefing on Thursday, sources told Reuters. The target, if achieved, means U.S. airlines would likely not have to greatly extend costly cancellations of 737 MAX jets they have already put in place for the peak summer flying season, but the FAA representatives warned that there was no firm timetable to get the planes back in the air. American Airlines Group Inc, Southwest Airlines Co and United Airlines suspended 737 MAX flights into July and August after the FAA grounded Boeing's best-selling jet in March following two crashes in the space of five months that together killed 346 people.

Once regulators approve Boeing Co's grounded 737 MAX jets for flight, each aircraft will likely require between 100 and 150 hours of preparation before flying, officials from the three U.S. airlines that operate the MAX told Reuters. The estimate, provided to Reuters by American Airlines Group Inc, United Airlines and Southwest Airlines Co officials, is the first indication of the time needed to bring the jets out of storage following a worldwide grounding in March spurred by deadly crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia. The preparations were discussed at a meeting between Boeing and MAX customers in Miami earlier this week, and include a list of items ranging from fluid changes and engine checks to uploading new 737 MAX software.

DALLAS, May 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Southwest Airlines Co. (LUV) today announced the Company's Mechanics and Related Employees, represented by the Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association (AMFA), have voted to ratify a new tentative agreement. "Our Mechanics will receive well-deserved pay increases, and the Company will realize additional flexibilities necessary to compete in today's airline industry," said Vice President of Labor Relations Russell McCrady. In its 48th year of service, Dallas-based Southwest Airlines Co. (LUV) continues to differentiate itself from other air carriers with exemplary Customer Service delivered by more than 59,000 Employees to a Customer base topping 120 million passengers annually.
Southwest Airlines Co's mechanics union said on Tuesday its members had overwhelmingly voted to ratify a tentative contract agreement with the airline, ending seven years of labor negotiations fraught with legal disputes and flight disruptions. The agreement, which brought to a close one of the most disruptive labor disputes to hit a top-four U.S. airline in more than a decade, came a day after rival U.S. carrier American Airlines Group Inc said it was filing a labor-related lawsuit against its mechanics. Mechanics at both American and Southwest have complained that the airlines are moving to outsource maintenance work that has traditionally been done in-house.
After six years of bargaining that included 3:00 a.m. negotiating sessions, lawsuits, countersuits and intervention from the Federal Aviation Administration, Southwest mechanics finally have a new contract. The Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association posted results that showed an agreement with Southwest Airlines Co. (NYSE: LUV) was approved with 94.6 percent of mechanics voting to ratify the deal. Over 93.6 percent of the company's aircraft maintenance technicians voted, the AMFA said.
American Airlines accused the unions that represent its mechanics of deliberately affecting operations as contract negotiations between the two sides drag on.
