AS MAX Routes

Sitting here watching all the approaches from the North in Seattle, keeping a lookout on flightradar24 for any Alaska MAX's. Anyone know what routes they are flying? Where do we expect them to fly throughout the rest of the year?

BTW, just saw the AS 737 in the UNCF special livery - pretty sharp!

Pretty sure they’re all grounded due to the wiring issue on new-build max jets. Hopefully airborne again soon!

How does this impact the A320 phase out schedule? Are they keeping them on longer?

According to the Alaska fleet site, there are four (N913AK, N915AK, N918AK, N919AK) that are all currently parked for electric repair.

According to Flightaware, they flew the following routes in March/April before being grounded:
SEA-SAN

The FAA just issues the repair directive and each jet will take a few days to fix so could be at least a couple weeks before we see any back in service.
