CHICAGO (AP) - United Airlines is making it official - it won't use the grounded Boeing 737 Max at all this summer. United says it is taking the plane out of its schedule until at least Sept. 4. Without those planes, United will cancel 80 flights a day, or about 2,500 a month over the peak summer vacation season.

Boeing is taking longer than expected to fix the planes after two crashes killed 346 people. The result will be fewer flights than airlines planned, which could mean higher fares.

United's announcement comes one day after Southwest delayed its possible return of the Boeing planes until mid-August.
