Booking on a 737 MAX
« on: September 16, 2019, 03:01:08 PM »
I am looking at an AA flight EWR-MIA in mid-December. One of the legs is scheduled to be on a 737 MAX. Personally, I would have zero hesitation to board if the FAA re-certifies. However, in all likelihood, the MAX won't be in service. Is it worthwhile to book it anyway as I would be accommodated on another flight for free, or does it make more sense to book on another flight to not have to deal with the possible cancellation?

I'd as well, worst case is rebook.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

I have a flight Jan 19 and I can see it was changed from 737-800 to a Max..
