United is moving its 14 Boeing 737-9 MAX jets to Goodyear, AZ for storage

United Airlines has announced it is moving its 14 Boeing 737-9 MAX 9 aircraft to desert storage in Goodyear, AZ (near Phoenix).

The move should be completed by mid September.

United previously cancelled all revenue flights of the type in its schedule through November 3 (now extended to December 19). This is likely to be extended as the type remains grounded (except for ferry flights).

CNBC: United CEO says he’s not sure travelers will want to fly a Boeing 737 MAX

From CNBC:

“United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz on Thursday said he’s under no assumption that all passengers will feel comfortable flying on a Boeing 737 MAX plane anytime soon.”

“We will be incredibly communicative to all our customers and very transparent when that aircraft comes back,” Munoz told CNBC’s Phil LeBeau at New York’s LaGuardia airport, where the carrier is opening up a new terminal. Munoz added, “The first and foremost objective is to not assume everyone will want to fly, or assume everyone will get over it.”

From Reuters:

United Airlines expects Boeing Co’s grounded 737 MAX jets to return to service this summer, with deliveries resuming before the end of the year, an executive said on Wednesday, reassuring investors concerned about a prolonged suspension.

The 737 MAX was grounded worldwide in March following two fatal crashes, forcing Boeing to freeze deliveries. Boeing is under pressure to upgrade the software and convince global regulators that the plane is safe to fly again, a process expected to take at least 90 days.

Chicago-based United, which is part of United Continental Holdings Inc, removed its 14 MAX aircraft from its flying schedule through early July, while U.S. competitors that own the MAX have planned their flying schedules without the aircraft into August.

United has another 16 MAX orders scheduled for delivery this year.

“The aircraft scheduled for delivery this year, we would expect to take this year,” Chief Financial Officer Gerald Laderman said on a first-quarter conference call.
