    However, Reuters reports also say that Doug Parker (CEO of AAL) said at the stockholders' meeting that he he expects return of 737 MAX by early September. "“We wouldn’t be selling seats today if we didn’t think it was highly likely (...) that we’d be able to provide that service by Sept. 3,” Parker said during the company’s annual shareholders meeting.

    We'll see who is right. My money is on the FAA. Right or wrong I think the public is going to believe that FAA failed at expected oversight. so, FAA will be cautious about approving return to service. Don't think the FAA will care about the fact that American has sold seats on airplanes that are currently grounded.
