Bloomberg reports that United Airlines is scheduled to resume flights on the Boeing 737 MAX on Thursday, with “a total of two dozen flights” from Denver and Houston. United’s actions are part of the “gradual and so far uneventful return of The Boeing Company’s best-selling plane after a 20-month flying ban.” United is planning to operate 566 flights on the 737 MAX in February before increasing to 2,000 in March. Seven airlines have a total of 3,996 flights scheduled on the 737 MAX this month with another 8,700 planned for March.
