Skift Take

Alaska doesn't want to take a risk with the Boeing 737 Max 9 right now.

Alaska Airlines said it will extend its cancellation of Boeing 737 Max 9 flights through Tuesday, Jan. 16, for planes that have been grounded since last week’s mid-air cabin panel blowout.

Alaska has been cancelling about 20% of daily flights since Saturday after the grounding of its 65 Max 9 planes.
