The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration re-certified Boeing 737MAX on Nov.18, after being grounded for 20 months following two fatal crashes.

Travellers can see on American’s website the type of plane they are booking in for the flight, and airline said customers won’t be automatically rebooked on a Max if their original flight plan changes.
