All MAX aircraft have been removed from the current flight schedule out for sale. On Thursday the schedule release will include increased Hawaii flying and CZM. A lot of speculation that winter flying will eliminate a lot markets from year round to seasonal due to lack of aircraft.
International news there is talk of the return of BDA in the spring. BWI-BDA 16:15-21:00 and BDA-BWI 09:00-10:45.
Have you looked at the current flight schedule? It clearly shows the MAXs still in the schedule after October
I reached out to HDQ Friend and this was the response I got.
"Flights that aren't being eliminated due to the MAX8 grounding and are not part of the rebooking process still show MAX equipment should have a Equipment change on Thursday either to a 7378 or 7377.
For all practical purposes And fleet schedule operation planning the MAX8 has been removed from the operation schedule.
New complete Schedule will load up on Thursday morning."
This grounding and unknown return date timeline has got to be painful in WN network planning and revenue management department.
