(Reuters) - China Southern Airlines Co Ltd has cancelled plans for two Boeing (NYSE:BA) Co 737 MAX flights on Sunday that would have represented the model's return to passenger flying in China after more than three years, according to the airline's website.

The 737 MAX was grounded in March 2019 following fatal crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia but has returned to service around the world with the exception of China and Russia after modifications to the aircraft and pilot training.

China Southern had scheduled flights from its Guangzhou hub to Zhengzhou and Wuhan, Reuters reported on Thursday.

The airline's website and flight tracking website FlightRadar24 showed the flights had been cancelled. China Southern did not respond immediately to a request for comment.

On Wednesday, Boeing said it had another 138 planes manufactured for Chinese carriers that were in the United States waiting to be delivered, though it had begun remarketing the jets to other carriers given there were no concrete signs that Chinese airlines would accept the planes in the near term.

Earlier this month, a 737 MAX flight by MIAT Mongolian Airlines landed in Guangzhou, marking the first commercial flight by the model in China since 2019.

China should ban Boeing due to national security.

More evidence that China and other countries are alienating the US and their western allies thanks to their misguided political leadership and failed foreign diplomacy. Western mainstream media and politicians have fooled their citizens into believing they are a powerful alliance, and not the marginalized minority on the world stage they actually are.
