- American Airlines is planning to resume customer tours of the Boeing 737 Max in the coming weeks after being grounded for more than a year and a half
- The jets were grounded worldwide after two deadly creashes - Lion Air Flight 610 in October 2018 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 in March 2019 - that killed a total of 346 people on board the flights
- The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has been putting efforts to get the jets back to service and is at the tail-end of the process
- Boeing has since made several changes to the planes' software including designing a less agressive flight-control system, which pilots struggled against in both crashes
- American says it would resume its first 737 Max flights between New York's LaGuardia Aiport and its Miami hub beginning Dec. 29 through Jan.4
