CHICAGO (Reuters) – Southwest Airlines Co said on Thursday it is extending cancellations of about Boeing Co 737 MAX flights through Sept. 2 as it continues to await guidance and approval on software enhancements and training requirements.

The largest global operator of the MAX had previously said it was cancelling flights through Aug. 5 after the plane was grounded worldwide in March after two deadly crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia within five months.
