Max 737 grounding sees global seat capacity drop by 41m
Air travel data firm OAG compared the numbers from mid-February before the grounding to early August to calculate the reduction in seat capacity, reports TravelMole.com.
The Intelligent Aerospace take:
August 12, 2019-The MAX line of passenger aircraft proved popular with carriers because it has both greater range and fuel efficiency, as well as more seats compared to non-MAX models of the 737. With domestic carriers expecting the MAX groundings to last through the summer, airlines will likely top $4 billion in lost revenue up to November, says TravelMole.com
