The airline in December said it believed it would start flying the plane again April 7.

American said Tuesday around 140 flights a day will be canceled through June. 3 due to the grounding of the 737 MAX, two of which crashed, killing 346 people.

The company's reservation team will contact affected customers directly by email or telephone beginning Jan. 19, it said, adding that customers who booked through a travel agent will be contacted by their agency directly.

Customers will have the option to get a refund if they don't want to be rebooked, American said.
